Marco Island, Florida proved to be all the therapy Ellie needed on vacation. She walked on sand, imitated tasks like putting on sunblock, drank from my running water bottle, walked down to the water and sat in it by herself, learned new animals, and engaged in sensory play.
Thanks, Marco Island!
Sometimes therapy becomes all-consuming and I need to step back and remember that Ellie is constantly learning and growing, even if she still thinks a seagull is a penguin.
