{wonders}


{LOVE}
Rayce's face after he realized D-Riv was catching the Ball...
He didn't want him to fail, he never does....
He was trying to throw it..... just right.
true-brotherly-love moment right there....


Did you hear the cheering??
It was the catch of a million hours of physical therapy...
Yes, as we all sat mindlessly watching Sponge Bob...
Rayce brings out a ball he got at school today....and just tosses it to D-RIV
Well, what to our wondering eyes should appear but ....
D-RIV's hands moving forward to CATCH IT!
Now Yes, he had caught a ball before (kinda, on accident)...
And Yes, he can read on a 4th grade level...and point to most all the capitals of the USA on a map...
But the child has never mastered the ability to "GET READY" to catch a ball...or really catch it...(on-purpose)
He has NEVER...I repeat NEVER, ...put his arms out ready to recieve a catch...
and in a blink of an eye ...
there it was...
the skill worked on for thousand's (literally) of hours by his wonderful Therapist's (mainly..DEANNA, who I can NEVER re-pay for her hours of LOVE and caring for D-Riv and my whole family... Love you, D)
He caught a BALL today....
All because his wonderful, caring, understanding, Twin...
Rayce decided to play catch with him....
