july 12, 2011 wet fun!

so on saturday night the kids and i came home late from a graduation party and as the caregiver was leaving he said–mike said to bring a swimsuit tomorrow because we are going swimming. i said–what? i was a bit astounded, confused and a tad hopeful. i have been asking mike for 2 years to consider going to a local beach in naperville that has a special chair that we could transfer him into from his wheelchair, then it swings out over the water and lowers you in. turns out, mike was thinking he would try it the next day. then after i told the kids, mike decided to put it off until tomorrow. but the kids begged and he went and we tried this crazy new idea out! it was great and not too difficult and while tony and i took turns holding mike under the arms to keep him stable he spashed and grabbed at and chased mcKaela and eli around our spot in the water. they loved it. i believe it was the best time they have ever had with their dad. and i was so glad mike took the risk. just wanted to share that summer delight!
