Look who’s sitting in her car again!

Me!

This time, I’m in front of one of the local Boys and Girls club, it’s after dinner time, it’s cold and I didn’t bring my book.

Emily is in there with the lady from Community Living and her intern.

If it goes well tonight, this could be another recurring volunteer gig for my girl so I’m sitting here for what could be 3 hours…

Here’s to hoping she can have support worker hours approved to help with this as I can’t imagine I would enjoy volunteering here to help her.

How I wish I could be a fly on the wall to see how the kids are reacting to her, if they are nice to her, if she fits in.

I hate not being with her and provide her a buffer just in case but I know I have to give her room to learn and grow…

This is a crazy roller coaster ride my friends and here I thought it would get easier once she would be an adult.

Growing up

I know I don’t really write anymore but just wanted you all to know that Emily is now officially in a relationship!

I say officially because they made it Facebook official over the weekend!

Here she is with the lucky guy, having dinner after her cheer competition on Saturday!

No wonder she’s smitten, he bought her flowers!

Other updates include Emily’s love of pottery which started as a school coop placement a year ago to a weekly volunteering opportunity which allows her to continue to grow as an artist.

She has a uniform!

We are also exploring other volunteering opportunities at one of the local Boys and Girls Club, doing art project with younger kids and at her cheer club, helping the coaches for one of the team of younger athletes.

She’s very excited about all of these opportunities.

Here are some of her more recent art projects!

Leaving you with this picture of Emily enjoying life by laughing with her whole body!

I am wishing you that kind of laugh at least once a week!

💜💜💜
