Happy Fall...

 Here are a few pictures from Izzy's school on Halloween day. Izzy had a great day at school on Thursday.  Camilla (p.t.) was excited about the work she did in the walkable.  She thought Isabelle enjoyed being in the walkable, and that Isabelle initiated some steps and held herself up well.  Izzy's vision continues to improve.  She looks around a lot and there is marked
improvement in her vision therapy.
We continue to do her program.  She is doing well and while it seems very repetitive
and monotonous at times, that is the point so we know we are on the right track for now.
Isabelle seems to get stronger all the time in her arms and shoulders.
I am thankful for the helpers who are faithful to come every week and help with the
program... Laura on Tuesdays, Jane on Wednesdays, and mom in the evenings.  Aunt
Colleen came to help this week on Friday.  There are a few of the exercises that take two
people.  The kids are all capable of helping as well.  
Amanda, Bailey, and Emelia are all doing great too.  Report cards came out and parent
teacher conferences.  Everyone got good marks, and Amanda is still a straight A student
in spite of the AR classes.  She works so hard at school and we are proud of her for the commitment she makes to her classes.  Bailey loves junior high!
Sorry my updates are not often... it just seems like it is a lot of the same although we are always so busy.  I am so thankful for everyone who has taken Izzy and our family into your hearts and keeps us in prayer.  Please continue to pray for healing.  

"The truth is, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works, because I am going to be with the Father. You can ask for anything in my name, and I will do it, because the work of the Son brings glory to the Father. Yes, ask anything in my name, and I will do it! John 14:12-14

Izzy looks so cute in her costume! She really seems to be "seeing" rather than just looking. Her expression seems more intense. God is great and we know that he answers prayer, not only because He said so, but because it's evident in the healing and the progress Izzy continues to experience! Thank you for sharing your family and I continue to lift Izzy and your family in prayer to our Lord.
If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer." Matthew 21:22

We agree! Izzy looks adorable!
You can see that she is doing so much better - day after day. Keep up the good work and watch for every miracle along the way.

Love & Prayers!
