Goodbye NAPA... Day 15

I really hate goodbyes! It is so hard!

Today was our last day at the NAPA center! Makenzie had the best day yet and went out with a BANG! They worked her hard and then we had a bit of time to just play!!! She loved it!

She jumped in the spider cage with help! She started really high up without her feet on the ground and she thought that was so much fun! Makenzie LOVES movement!

Then we lowered the bungies so that she could touch the ground. She did much better then I thought she would! This kid ALWAYS amazeses me! She stood up SOOOO straight! At first she was way up on her toes but as she realized she was in control and it didn't hurt she came down onto her whole foot!!!! WOW!!! She also did a great job of lifting her WHOLE trunk up when she fell! AMAZING! She has gotten SOOOO strong! Then we asked her to jump. Guess what ?..... SHE DID!!!! Now she didn't really make it off the ground but you can see in the video that she is bending her legs and trying to lift her feet off the ground! I am just in awe at the healing that has happened in the last few months!

After our goodbyes at the center Julie and Joey came down and we hung out! I did a bit of packing and then we took the kids to the beach!!! They BOTH loved it!!!!! It was so much fun to stand next to Julie on the beach. Another mother, another friend, on the beach, with our belly laughing kids! I am sure it was a site to see but I sooooo wish I could just make time stand still for a while!

After our adventure in the sand and surf Kelly and her son joined us for some more socializing. Then the goodbyes! TEARS!!! I am so happy tonight because I feel so blessed to have spent so much time with these wonderful women but I am sooooo sad that I will have to continue this friendship from hundreds of miles away!!!

We will be back. I know the goodbyes aren't forever but it still hurts on a very deep level! I think that I am denial that I am really leaving in the morning! I have the sweatshirts and long pants out ready for a change in climate, I can't wait to see my boys, but I am in denial that I will not get up in the morning to start my day with a cup of coffee at the center with Julie, Joey and the rest of the gang! Summer Camp is over! LOL!!!!

Pray for peace, safe travels, and as always continued healing!!!!

Glad you are home safely. Sorry to hear the boys are sick. It is very sad that we are not going to wake up and see you guys on Monday. So glad we had all that time together. Should we start panning the wedding on the beach now. Hey have you seen my shoe. HA HA HA.

We will miss you guys. Hopefully we will see you soon.
Love Always and Forever
