Since then he has been doing twice a week swim lessons, and has made great progress. He recently passed the "swim test" at our pool. Here he is with his swim teacher Hannah, celebrating his feat.
A real treat was a recent Nationals ballgame with our friend Pat Leahy. We got down onto the field to watch batting practice, and Clay and Grace enjoyed getting signatures from several of the players. Clay's highlight was having Ian Desmond give him his bat, pine tar and all. Here is a shot of us down on the field. Ian is 6'8" which is why I only reach his shoulder. Grace is very into baseball these days so she is able to give Clay blow by blow details on what is happening on the field.
We are vacationing close to Boston this August, and I will be able to get to my classes more easily, while we all enjoy some down time. Clay's next MRI is in September, and then we face very difficult discussion on next steps. Please keep Clay in your thoughts and prayers so he might have a good year as he starts 3rd grade this Fall.
