Update From The Hudgiks • February 28th

The other day I heard a lot of yelling, shouting and laughing coming from the family room in the basement. I figured the kids were playing games on the Xbox. When I went down to see what was going on I was very surprised.

Giant Checkers

I guess my family is very competitive.

One disappointment this year. It looks like this will be the first year since David started skiing that he will not be on snow. It takes a lot to get him out on a sit-ski. For one you have to plan way in advance and set an appointment. It takes a number of people to get him ready and then help him while he is out on the mountain. There is also the sit-ski. He really needs one built to fit his body. Otherwise they can be uncomfortable. Also where once he embraced the cold and snow he now feels the cold much more and this has been a very cold year. Hopefully next season he will be out and about on a snow packed mountain.

Because of time and other things I have also not been able to get out and ski. On our cars we have bumper stickers that read, “I Ski For David”. I think I will go up to Granite Gorge tomorrow and do just that.

We are still looking for Ideas on how to raise money to obtain a vehicle that David can drive himself in. Any and all ideas are welcome.

Our doors are always open to visitors. Stop by and say hello.

Thank you all for your kindness, caring and support.
