Izzy at school...

Yesterday when I took Izzy to school I knew that she would be working with Camilla and probably working in the walkable. I talked to her on the way to school about trying hard and how proud I was of her. When I came back to pick her up, everyone was very excited about how she had done in the walkable. She walked in it across and back in the therapy room. Camilla took her out and asked if she wanted to get in again to which she let them know she did. She said "go" when put in the walkable and they took her out into the hall and let her "walk" down the hall while the four little boys in her class sat in chairs and cheered for her. She never fussed and while she was helped by both Camilla and Niecie, they really felt like she was trying to help take steps and did initiate some steps on her own again. She was able to go further this time than the time before.
After her walking, she worked on vision and did better than ever!
Anyway, it was a good school day for Izzy and it's days like these that keep you smiling on slower days. I know that God is working in Izzy's brain and body and have faith that she will walk down the hall on her own soon.
I am thankful for Camilla (pt), she believes in Izzy... so do Barbara and Niecie (teachers). I cannot stress how important it is that the people helping Izzy believe in her!
Thanks for keeping us in prayer. She is doing great!

"The unfailing love of the Lord never ends! By his mercies we have been kept from complete destruction. Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each day. I say to myself, "The Lord is my inheritance; therefore, I will hope in him!" Lamentations 3:22-24

It's exciting that Izzy is doing so well! I know that many prayers on her behalf are being answered and her progress will continue. Your love and dedication to your family is inspiring!
Chance and I were at the store Thursday evening and saw you and Matt, but only as you were leaving. I guess it was our lucky night because we also saw Brittney and Theresa and Elizabeth's old babysitter, Verna (she kept Elizabeth from the time she was four months old until she started school). Jeannie comes out once a week to sit with Mom so I can get errands run.
I continue to pray for Izzy and your family and know that God is doing great things for Izzy!
