-- Erik (to his cousins as he was being carried to bed)
The reports from Idaho have been reassuring regarding Erik's spring break with his aunt, uncle, and cousins. He is definitely in good hands. Sending him away for a few days was a difficult decision to make, but it was obviously a good one for all involved. He is a crack up, and it makes me happy we can share him with our family.
The following video was taken by my father on one of their walks. Their usual route is approximately two miles, and Erik is now able to run all of it. Watching this makes me realize how important physical therapy has been in Erik's development and how able Erik is to adapt to the challenges of gigantic deficiencies in his visuospatial ability. He is truly an amazing little boy.
His reaction at seeing the camera is pretty priceless. He is also a serious ham.
