Brady was once again a blue monster for Halloween - he wore it last year, but he is too cute in it. I swear he'll wear something new next year!
Saturday we went to Lucien's house for the WSA Halloween party. Lucky for us, it was right in my hometown - how cool! We saw some old friends and made new ones - there were five teenagers there, four whom we had never met before. It was great to meet them~ we have always met the younger kids but only one or two older kids. They were very social, but also respectful and pleasant to hang around with. One boy, Josh, was dressed as Elvis, even able to sound like The King and do his stance. He also collected a few girls' phone numbers, quite a charmer!
I wasn't sure how I would feel meeting older kids with WS; it's like the future is staring you straight in the face, whether you want to see it or not. I was happy meeting these kids; it was actually a relief to see their independence. I know all kids are different, so what will be with Brady might be totally different.
Jen, as usual, was a fabulous host - although all Brady wanted to do was walk, walk, walk. He would take off in his walker to the rock wall, the woods, a tree.... maneuver then keep going. At one point he was trying to go uphill. Who is this kid???
