Chillin in Maine

Hello from Maine! We are having a wonderful August enjoying beautiful weather and a relaxing spot on Sebago lake where the biggest decision required of us is when to take out the kayaks. Clay is feeling good and is enjoying swimming at one of the 13 beaches that ring the island.

Wi-fi works well here and we got word that voting to win the SMART brailler will begin Monday. The contest is being set up so people can vote once a day, from Monday until around September 8. You can read about the 5 other children in the race to win the brailler here: (scroll down once on the page).  Of course every child should have access to whatever aid will help them learn Braille, and right now this new brailler is the best option. It is no iPad, but it is the best brailler.  So please cast your vote for Clay. I am hoping all of the kids will get offered a discounted price from Perkins, but only 1child will get the brailler outright.

I will post the voting site link on Monday. I hope everyone is enjoying these last few days of summer.
