Spring Break - Week of Apr. 6th

Record Time!  28 min
For Cam's full week of spring break, Oma and Opa stayed with us on Monday to hang out with Cam.  It was a warm day and Cam's grandpa helped him with some batting practice gearing up for the WMML spring baseball season.

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.
 Cam's goal was to pass his former record every time.
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.

The weather stayed fairly nice and the spring break duo was able to spend time outside in the warm air.
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!
