A to Z Challenge – Day 7 – G

Giraffe

This one was a surprise!  Emily sat down at the table and wrote away while I napped on the couch and try to will myself back to health.  The flu that hit Jonathan than myself has to be the strongest flu out there!  Lucky for us, we caught it early in Emily and the medication has saved her from the worst.

Emily’s love of giraffe is not new.

When Emily was 7, she wanted to move to Kenya.  She learned about Kenya in 1st grade and was fascinated by the landscape, the animals and the culture.

January 1998, we offer her the next best thing, a trip to Disney with a room at the Animal Kingdom Lodge.  This is 9 year old Emily looking at wild animals from our balcony.

Following is what Emily wrote about giraffes.  I believe google helped her with this!

She told me some of the key words she wanted to write about and she wrote about them.

My big win on this post is definitely Emily’s printing!  Look at it!

When Emily was diagnosed with Cri du Chat Syndrome, we were told that she would do nothing.  Not walk, talk, recognized us or understand us.

We’ve worked with physiotherapist and occupational therapist for every milestone Emily has achieved.  We’ve learned how to work with her to help her grow and developed new skills.  Her printing above is such a big win!!!

Thanks to Niki at The richness of a simple life I have discovered a yearly challenge that I can’t wait to tackle.

To be honest, before signing-up, I had a chat with Emily and started to work on our list!

On April 1st, we start with the letter A and we write our way through the alphabet.Β  It can beΒ  a word, a proper noun, the letter used as a symbol, or the letter itself.Β  For the challenge, you can write about whatever you want.

In our case, it will all be centered around Emily and as a bonus for you all, Emily will write a little something too!Β  This will be a first blogging!Β  How cool is that!
