|Record Time! 28 min|
The remainder of week was dedicated to Kelsey & Cam time. To assist with building core strength for Cameron, Kelsey began timing him completing different stamina activities. Jane named these "time trials" and Kelsey made some super cool tracking pages to record the posted events.
The trials covered everything from sitting in different positions to standing while holding onto a bar.
He kept close track of the clock timer on the iPad and every few minutes would request a time check to determine how close he was to his personal goal.
Each morning and evening, his request was to start his time trials and it certainly made spring break go by quickly!
Kelsey also took Cam in for a personal swimming lesson one morning and then out to lunch. She told us about his continued progress and a game they played where Cam would "fall into the pool" (like Humpty Dumpty ) and practice feeling comfortable going under water from that position.
As we watch Cam continue to progress in so many areas, we often wonder which person has triggered each progression. We've realized, it's a culmination and each person's connection with him.
Thank you, Kelsey, for such a great week! And thanks to all of you who make that connection with our Cam!
