Not only did she walk all the way around the track, but she stopped to say hello to an admiring fan. :) Both are miracles in my book.
Way to go, Ava!
There were SO many cute and creative floats and costumes. I wasn't able to snap photos of all of them but here are a few:
When this little boy, who is visually impaired, walked around the track, they asked the crowd to withhold their cheers. He had to listen to his teacher's instructions to know which way to go. What an applause he received when he crossed the finish line though!A live pony, wow!
It's a corn stalk!
This little boy just got prosthetic legs last week! He showed off his newly acquired walking skills. Sweet boy. He is in Ava's class.
A crop duster! How creative! Who in the world comes up with these kinds of ideas? This boy is non-verbal and has no use of his arms or his legs....BUT he can maneuver his wheelchair by himself, by turning his head. He can also communicate by directing his eyes towards words on a computer screen. Technology has been good to this boy and his family.
A silo. Oh my goodness.
Is she cute or what?
And here is Ava with her teacher Miss Brooke. We are sure going to miss this place next year. :(
