Yesterday David, family, and his cousins from Massachusetts, went up to Granite Gorge for some tubing, snowboarding and skiing. What a great day. Lots of sun and fun in the snow. Everyone had a great time! We are using the time to get our ski legs under us so we will be ready to go skiing with David next week. On Tuesday the 25th David will be up at Crotched Mountain ski area trying out a Sit-Ski again. I’m hoping to be able to keep up with him.
Ribby, the Swamp Bats mascot, was at the mountain and came over to say hello to David (see picture below.) More pictures can be found on the February photo page at davidsjourneytorecovery.com.
After a fun filled day at Granite Gorge the kids got some more tubing in at our house here in Keene.
Today it was a quiet day at home. David spent most of the day working out in the basement. His friend Will came over in the afternoon and got David to try some Muscle Milk. Muscle Milk is a protein drink. Hopefully it will help David’s muscles grow as he works out. The goal is to put on weight but not a lot of fat. We will keep you posted on how it goes.
Also, we are looking at fund raising ideas for this year. David has many expenses. To help David become more independent we are looking to raise money to modify his van so that he can drive it. The goal would be to have the modification done for graduation. He will also need special driving lessons so he can drive it with the modifications.
We are interested in any and all ideas.
Tuesday the 25th, around 9:30 a.m., David will be Sit Skiing at Crotched Mountain. All are welcome to join him. We should be there through lunch.
Thank you for your support.
Keep David in your prayers,
David’s Dad Paul
