The Fairies came to Perth

For Caitlins birthday, her very clever Nanny Jo and Grumps got her a ticket to go and see the Fairies in concert. I really struggled to hold Caitlin throughout the show as she did not stop jumping around and dancing in excitement, my arms certainly got a workout that day!!!!
Nan had organised for Caitlin to be taken to the VIP lounge after the show and have a meet and greet with the fairies, Wizzy the Wizard and Barnaby the Bee. Caitlin was a bit over awed when meeting them but it was a memory I'm sure she treasures!!!!

Aqua with Tess

Caitlin had a ball at Aqua with her best friend from school, Tess and her little sister, Grace.
Her favourite part of the day was when she got to pat the sting rays in the touch pool !!!!
A great day was had by all. There was so much to see, and for the visually impaired, there was lots of contasting colours and bright lights. Caitlin loved the day and we loved watching her face as she giggled with delight at it all.

Santa Claus is coming, Santa Claus is coming, He's not very far away!

Yippee, it's Christmas Eve !!!!
After a week of gastro with Caitlin, she has finally kept her breakfast down and looks a much better colour today!
What a day we have today in preparation for the BIG day tomorrow and my two girls are very excited about it. We have to make our glitter bags to throw on the front lawn tonight so Santa can see our house shining from the sky, we have Christmas Mass at the girls school tonight and then we are off to look at the houses with Christmas lights with Nan and Grumps tonight and then set out the reindeer food and Santa beer and food, with a letter asking Santa to please NOT leave his muddy foot prints all through our house this year!!!. All while trying to stay on our best behaviour.
We all hope that everyone that reads this blog has a very Merry Christmas and a safe and Happy New Year and we will let you know how we got on after Chrissy. Travel safely if you are travelling!
Love Caitlin and her family

Caitlin and Grace getting ready for Christmas. Two very excited girls with only 6 sleeps left. WE need every one of those sleeps to catch up before the big day arrives. Too many Christmas parties and work farewells for Dad!!!

School today

Caitlin came home from school today really excited, they had a special visit from Santa and he brought all of the Special Needs children a present. Tomorrow Caitlin's class is having a "Polar Express" day and they get to go to school in their PJ's!!!

School reports came home today and some of the comment were "she has a contagious sense of humour", "joins in group games with assistance from her peers", and "she has brightened up the class this year with her presence." How proud of her are we!!!

Caitlin has is 9 and was born with Cerebral Palsy. For the past three years we have been doing a therapy called Advanced Biomechanical Rehabilitation.

The changes in Caitlin's skeletal structure are remarkable and something I am very proud of as it has taken a lot of hard work from myself and my husband.

We have just come back from some more training and all is going well. I love to see the changes in her each clinic!!!
