No finals for the TITAN's

Harri and I went along to the qualifying final for the Titan's against the Sydney Roosters, it was a close match for 3/4 of the game, the Titan's needed a little bit of luck, but it was not there for them that night. But we are still loud and proud, their best every finish and only their 3rd year, they made it to the last 4 teams. A couple of important team members will not be there next year, one of those is Matt Rodgers, he is retiring. A photo of him below.
First is photo of Harri and Me getting hair painted.

All dressed ready to go.
At the game.

A final farewell to one of the great players, Matt Rodgers.

The celebrations continue

After the weekend with family celebrations, we waited until the beginning of the holidays to celebrate Harri's birthday with friends, as they go to different schools. We had quite a day, with roller skating in the morning and a nerf gun war in the afternoon. Jae was recruited for the enemy, along with a friend of his (Ethan) who also has a brother with a disability.
Everyone finding their balance.

But Harri likes it better when were going fast.

Harri ready for battle,

and giving covering fire to our team.

Cutting the cake with brother Bailey and close friends.

A memorable birthday

Well this week Harri became a teenager. His celebrations will continue, but yesterday he celebrated with just the family and later joined his favorite NRL team, the Gold Coast TITANS, as they began their finals campaign. We are pleased to say that they started with a win, and we will get to see 1 more home game at least.
Have a good week everyone, and enjoy life's little golden moments. Regards Matt

getting the basics down pat

Today we spent some quality time with the computer, as a reward for good concentration with his ABR exercises. I am happy to report that we are getting the basics down pat. In 1 afternoon session Harri not only improved his skills with the 4 previous moves on the computer. He learnt 2 more ( left and right ) and was up to speed with them in no time. He really was quite proud of him self.

We have a rather big weekend planned. Our team the Titans are playing their last home and away game for the season, and with a win, have a chance to go into the finals series in 2nd place (thats happening Friday night). then on Saturday afternoon/night we will be going into the city to watch the Riverfire fireworks display, with the F1 11's doing their last pass before they are retired.

Have a good week, Regards Matt

One thing, then another

We have finally been getting on top of the cough, but have had a re-occurrence of the gastritis. More blood tests at the hospital and on losec again. But no closer to the answer as to why. This time the persistence of us, his parents, is getting us closer to an answer. We have now a Gastroenterologist appointment on thursday morning. Where they will make the decision as to wether do an endoscope, and see what's going on down there.

The discomfort has prevented us from getting a lot of the main ABR exercises we have been prescribed done. It has also effected his sleep, and he has not been doing as well with the computer training. I think because he is tired and has low concentration when tired.

Regards Matt
