I know, it's been forever. Sorry, I'm busy!
Ok so I'll get to the point. A few days ago Steven wasn't feeling so great. He leaned his head over, put his hand on his forehead and said "Mom, I think I have a beaver". Sometimes that fact that he can't hear well drives me nuts and sometimes it's priceless.
In other news, Steven is a senior this year! I know, I can't believe it either. The future is still a scary thing for me to talk about but that is the first question I am asked. I don't really know what will happen after he graduates. He can stay in school for one more year, it's called being a super senior, or he could get a job. We are always looking for work for him. There are so many benefits to living in a small community but this isn't one of them. There just aren't the supports that a big city has. We will keep trying and looking for what ever God has for him. I can't worry about it, it's just to big for me. I just am depending on God to reveal his plan at the right time. I'll try to do better and post more often but I will leave you with some of the highlights from the last year.
He participated on the high-school basketball team. When given the opportunity to play (for about 15 seconds) he did what he does best, dribbled down to the free throw line and shot a perfect swish! He did great in the Special Olympics winter games. His skiing really improved and he actually started to like it! He also went to prom and had great time dancing. One of his greatest accomplishments was knee boarding without help.
