I can't even begin to tell you how excited Kevin was today while at the bike shop. The owner took him outside and put him on a trike and Kevin just went nuts! I haven't seen him this happy in a long time. Here are some photos:
So now we start the paperwork for the VA to purchase one for him and I can only hope that it happens quickly. He is so pumped!
Oh - and Jan? The daredevil side already made an appearance - he wanted to race today as I was on one too riding beside him for a while. And believe it or not - these bikes aren't actually for the handicap per se. They are just for anyone that prefers a more comfortable, safe ride.
And I might have told you guys in July that I bought Kevin a one-handed controller for his XBox for his birthday. We couldn't get it to work until tonight. He needed a wired controller and all of his were wireless, so my niece's boyfriend swapped him controllers and then came over and got it working for us. Kevin was so happy! And because all of his games were stolen, he and Breezy just got back from a Walmart run to purchase HALO 3. He already wants the internet hooked up to his XBox, but I did tell him he had to become more proficient in using the controller first. Once that happens (I doubt it will take long), he will be able to reconnect with his online friends. I can only hope that this - above all else - will bring his determination to talk and to interact with others out.
On the Breezy front, her job interview ended up being a waste of time. I really don't understand why people have you drive to their place of business if they aren't even hiring. It's just so darn frustrating! But I guess she is just gonna have to keep looking. I'm sure there is something out there for her...
First 2 from the Nov kit!
