Hard at work

Harri has been busy the last 4 weeks. Adjusting very quickly to the new routine with school. I thought i would share some photos of him at school.
Also Harri has been working hard at home. Some of his spare time spent creating painting, which we will try to have printed on to christmas cards to sell and some packs of cards and envelopes for his charity.
regards Matt

Fun with science

Harri has been visiting Corinda State High School, as an orientation for next year. We are unsure if we will get the funding to go there, but Harri certainly likes the feel of high school. Yesterday we went to the science lab and performed some experiments with pressure. All us older people will remember the Professor Sumner Miller Cadbury ad, when the egg gets sucked into a bottle. Well Harri was thrilled.

This school could really push Harri as far as he can go with education. It can only work if he has a proficient means of communication. So a lot of my time over the next 3-4 months will be spent developing a means of communication for Harri.

Stop the press. Harri bowls a 175

Harri has been going along to a ten pin bowling league for people with physical disabilities, on a Saturday morning for the last 3 weeks. He will join a team in the next season. But today Harri bowled a " 175 " this included 3 strikes and 6 spares. They made a big song and dance as well as presenting him with his 175 pin for his bowling badge.

New and exciting fun

Harri has been enjoying lots of new fun activities at school like riding a special made bike from Body Cycle Australia . I wanted to share a photo from his first ride.

He will look much straighter when the bike has a backrest extension. Really cool though. Harri was really proud of himself, peddling by himself at times. 

Cheers Matt

Very exciting week

Harri started school this week, he has been very excited, and unbelievably brave. Braver than his dad. Fantastic support at the school for Harri to feel comfortable and safe.
