But today was beyond words.
If you watch this video:
You will see how difficult just walking on the balance beam was. This was about 8ish months ago. He was very scared of heights and always wanted help with stations.
Here is today:
We were completely blown away. 6 months ago he wouldn't somersault, he held a hand to walk on the balance beam, he couldn't jump down off of anything, and even with help wouldn't flip over the bar.
You can't imagine all the work and patience that he and his wonderful teachers have put into all this. We are so grateful and so proud of the person he is becoming. And we are equally proud of all the kids who performed today, some who have it all down pat and some who are where James was last year. I can't wait to see how far they come in just a few short months!
And let's not forget his incredibly supportive sidekick!!!! She rocketed across the balance beam all by herself. Miss "No I Do It."
