Olivia’s Award for Athletics

Last week, Olivia was honored by our county educational service center for her achievement in athletics. Did you just crack up like we did? Athletics? What? Yes!!! Olivia’s occupational and physical therapists nominated her for the award because of how hard she’s worked this year in learning how to jump. We were very excited and proud!

Here’s the link to the article in our local newspaper.

She was really cute about the whole thing. She walked right up, took her award and when we said “hold it up”, she hoisted it above her head for everyone to see. Her principal, therapists and aide all came to the ceremony too. We were so proud!

**The article cracks me up. I think I’m going to send a quick email to the reporter just because it bugs me that the doctor quoted said it’s a disease of the throat. And that Olivia purrs. And that the 5th chromosome was “lost” during pregnancy. And mentioned nothing about all of the challenges she faces. Oye. It’s funny and yet it makes me mad at the same time. More on doctors later…**
