Starting this week off on Wednesday because I didn't get back from Nevada till Tuesday night. So, today Josh got to try out a basketball chair. Him and Joe tried them out and he went over the different rules of wheelchair basketball. Then Joe had me try it out. Me n Josh played a friendly game of pig...which I won!!! :P. The thing with wheelchair bb, you have no push off your legs, it's all upper body. Well, take away your core, and it is even more tough! He'll get it.
Then, Josh had his very first driving lesson! SCARY! Haha! He did great! He got the hang of it really fast and felt really good to be behind the wheel again. He will have a couple of more lessons, then he has to pass a Nevada DMV driving test. Then he will be a driving maniac!
Josh met Matt Updike , who is a Olympic paracycling champion, and is known as the Lance Armstrong of "hand" cycling...without the doping part. Haha. He travels all over the world to compete. Matt is helping Josh order and get fitted for his own hand cycle. Watch out Matt! Here comes your competition! ;)
So today was the day that Codey and Nathan started the demolition on our house! They only have 10 days to get it all done before we come home. I'm nervous, but excited! I know they will do an amazing job! Lots of people are helping them out and I am so grateful for that!
Our bedroom...they are hilarious!
Saturday & Sunday
Wendy and Brandon came up this weekend again to hang out with us. So we made Brandon come help us and deal with dealership people since he loves doing that! We are just looking right now and trying out what kind of vehicle would work the best for our family now. I'm afraid if we go by ourselves, I will be driving it home instead of flying. Haha. It was fun and so glad I didn't have to do it by myself. Now we have an idea of what we want. Then we ate some lunch and went to the movie Star Trek. It was very good. Then we just hung out the rest of the day. That was Josh's first time out and about for that long of a time. He did great! No excuses now;).
Sunday, we went to church then the Butlers headed home. :(. Josh and I just relaxed the rest of the day and enjoyed the beautiful weather while it lasts.
Then he had to go across these bumps, again with no help, while keeping a wheelie. They said not many people can do this before they go home :) he conquered it! :)
It's like last chance workout today in fit class. Since they do something different every day for a week, and this is his last week, he is pushing himself extra harder to make this workout his best! We are hoping he will be able to keep up on all these workouts when we get home, at a close-by rehab.
