Another great Dance Performance with Dancing beyond Limits.
We had old friends come to watch!
So Much Fun!
 We had family make it, and that was so good.
 We had amazing helpers again!
Along with Denali joining the fun!

 And Uncle Nick loved me up after wards!  What a wonderful night!

We had a fast fun trip to Pierce to spend time with family!
Fun times!

We met a couple of new friends!
We might be partaking in an adventure soon, but I don't 
want to get ahead of myself, so I will leave it at that,
and say, we might have a fun tail to tell sometime soon.

 I love walking into Quinn's room and catching the girls reading and holding hands.
 Denali dancing is always fun as well!

The Dancing Beyond Limit's Group is teaming up with the Lied Center to perform this Wednesday evening.
 Quinn will be performing, but Denali has stepped into the role of being a helper, so two of them will be dancing.  They are not partners, as I know that might not go well, and they might not pay attention, but they are great with their own partners.
 Isaiah opted to help watch Grace, and did a great job with that.
If you want to be inspired and come to the show,
It is at the Student Union Ballroom at the University of Nebraska.
The Dancing Beyond Limits group will start off the night,
it is free and you can come for it, or stay for the whole night.

and email  to let them know how many to expect!

In other news, we have been working out, all of us!
 Working hard!
 See the effort in those eyes and that body!
 Phew!  This is exhausting work!

We were at Total with Kurt and Chrissy to change up a few things on Quinn's chair.
She now has two of the same arm rests, and she was loving it already!

If you look below Quinn's feet, we are also in process of getting a back up chair, and I am so excited about it!  Thanks so much to Chrissy and Total for getting us a back up!  Thankfully we did not need a back up, as Quinn's power chair has been doing so good lately, but having a back up just in case, will be so very nice!
 I am again reminded how lucky we are to have insurance, and have companies and people in our lives that help us help Quinn be successful!  How blessed we are!

Happy Birthday to Isaiah!
We had to postpone his birthday party until his grades improve, but we had to do a few fun things.
As you can tell, he is pretty heartbroken about rescheduling!
 A few fun pictures from therapy!  My kids are so silly!

 They are great helpers too!

Here I was showing how amazing Quinn was walking in the last post.
Now I have to share her stubborn side.
She was at speech, and Staci would ask her to answer questions and rather then answering, she would look over at Abby, the new student speech therapist, and refused to answer a single question.  She did not want to show Abby what she could do!

She was ok sucking on a sucker and working on that motor skill, but past that, she sat there like a bump!  That is still her style.  She does not like to show off for anyone new.  

Maybe some day that will change.  That stubborn attitude has gotten her through a lot of hard times, but we did send her to bed early, because being rude and not talking when talked to, is not what we support in our house.  Granted we loved her up and it was only about 15 minutes early, but we did have another big talk about not being a bump!

Wow!  Look at Quinn go!
A Bitter Sweet Day!
Quinn did Amazing walking!
But our therapist is moving into a new job!
Thankfully she is also one of Quinn's dance teachers, so we will not loose her all together!

It has been so cold here.  So cold we did not have school yesterday.
So rather then clean the house, it is a disaster area right now, with half done puzzles, Quinn's monthly supplies, mail, blankets from playing, and so forth.  Nope, we did not clean.
The snow day worked out great, as Grandpa Ron was in Omaha working on a boat, so we got to go up early and play!  

We also did the zoo last week, on a freezing day, but so much is inside, we got along just fine.

We keep learning too.
We took our savings money from last year and put it into our accounts at the bank!

Getting back to school is good too!
Quinn has great teachers and nurses helping her have fun and be successful!
So this weekend we are cleaning!
