Grace started another 4-week Conductive Education camp yesterday. This camp will be a bit more challenging for her because she is going the full day for the first time. The first camp she attended for only 3 hours a day, the second for 4 hours day, and this time she will stay 6 hours. This means no nap and a lot of work.

When I picked her up yesterday, she looked tired...happy, but exhausted. She was using her new forward walker and doing a great job. I knew it had been a long day. We got home about 3:30. About 4:30 she started requesting a nap. "I need a nap." She would say about every 10 minutes. I tried to keep her occupied and awake. I knew a nap now would mean a potentially sleepless night. We had dinner about 5:30 and after many very sweet requests for bed, I got a "I Want to go to Bed!" So we had a quick bath and she was in bed by 6:00. Not even Mack could wake her up. We didn't hear a peep until 7:00 this morning. Hmmm....not bad...I could get used to that.

She was so precious requesting to "GO TO BED"... Finally at the dinner table, she said "GO TO BED PLEASE..." I agree - she was asleep in 30 seconds after her head hit the pillow! precious, precious, precious. Too bad you can't get Mack & Sophie to do the same... love, JJ

awww she is so sweet! Our kids have to work so hard. I can only imagine how exhausting it is on a daily basis.
