Day 3

My goal was to share New Years/Monthly Resolutions by now - hopefully I will get around to it on the weekend.  I must say - it is so tiring being so out of our everyday routines :)

One of my monthly resolutions for Shay is to work on his fine motor skills.  Shay struggles SO much with printing.  His desire to learn to print is HUGE - he's so interested and so eager.  The problem is a) weak fine motor skills and b) tone constantly kicking in when he is concentrating.  So frustrating to watch, cannot imagine how frustrating it is for him to experience.  That being said, as per usual - Shay does not complain - not one little bit.  Instead, he perseveres and tries and tries again.  He is so amazing!!!!

Tonight Shay on his own initiative asked to print the words off the wall in our kitchen into his notepad.  I could not believe how well he did.  After a few months, it's starting to come together.  So proud of him!

That's some fine printing there Shay! As always, I am looking forward to the 365 Challenge :)

Good to see an update. Printing is still a big challenge here too. Have you tried weights and a slant board? We have them here if you want to try them out. Need to meet for an adult dinner with you and Chris.
