|The trailrider in action|
We took turns on the trailrider - which is a device that allows us to go on singletrack trails and makes us feel free because we are not confined to where our wheelchairs can take us. They also make us feel like princesses (pun intended- in this picture Princess is shown on the trailrider).
We started the day learning about predator-prey relationships while playing "Bear, Salmon, Mosquito". Twice, both teams decided to be the same animal which was confusing. Which way would we run?
As a team, we helped each other out during activities like the blindfold sensory experience and T-ball.
|Blind Sensory Experience|
During the T-ball game it was Outward Bound vs. March of Dimes. It was a very competitive game as we all wanted to win. Even though we were excited to yell, "You're out!", we cheered each other on while we played. We also built our teamwork skills by showing others how to play and by letting everyone have a chance. We've been working on S.M.A.R.T. (Specific Measurable Attainable Realistic Timely) goals and during our T-ball game, we accomplished some of our goals. Suhail and Usman led their first activity- they taught us all how to play T-ball. They were awesome at leading us in this game. They knew all the rules and they were clear in sharing them with the group. Usman was a bit strict but this made the game more fun for all of us. Jess' goal was to challenge herself to be as physically active as possible. During the game, Jess got out of her chair and ran the bases on her own feet!
