Tree Climbing -

Conner gets to do some really cool stuff. This was the 2nd year that we participated in a tree climbing event hosted by Dance Marathon at U of M and Mott Children's Pediatric Rehab. The college kids that we have met through Dance Marathon are the best. Conner absolutely LOVES them and when a few of them graduate this year, we are really going to miss them. So here are a few pictures I got from the day. Brennan is still a little too small to climb but she enjoyed the swings and hanging out outside. 

 Conner is so strong and a superstar. I love how happy he is and I love that he has these amazing opportunities.

Walk 4 Friendship 2013 - September 1, 2013

Conner's Crew participated in the Walk4Friendship for the 3rd year. The Walk benefits The Friendship Circle of Michigan. The Friendship Circle is an incredible organization that provides so much to our community, not just for kids with special needs, but also for the volunteers that participate in the many programs. This year, through the many generous donations of our family and friends, and so many can and bottle donations and lemonade stands, Conner raised over $5000. This year, I had a big volunteer job at the walk, so we didn't get too many pictures but these are some highlights.

We are so grateful to all of our friends and family who have supported our fundraising efforts over the years and also so grateful to Friendship Circle for all they give to our family.
