Mid week camp and Gemiini update

Now that we appear to have smoothed the communication between us and camp counsellors out, we are rocking our routine!

This has been a stellar week at camp - their theme was dinosaurs, which Dominic loves.  He did the craft all by himself on Monday - which involved  cutting, coloring, and stapling as well as writing his name.  Given that he didn't bring home a single craft project last year, it was so nice to see him holding it when I picked him up.  

We have done our Gemiini videos 6 times a day, every day.  Wednesday was his first speech and occupational therapy appointment since we started in earnest and his speech therapist noticed a huge improvement in his articulation, specifically the end consonants.   For a week in we are very pleased.  

Today when I picked him up to take him
From day camp to speech and occupation therapies, his lead counselor remakes that he had been "super verbal"
All day.  I like to hear that.  He watched  his Gemiini videos all the way to therapy, then I let him switch the iPad to angry birds for a few minutes before his appointment.   When his ot arrived for him - and I told him it was time to be done with angry birds, he turned it off and went back with no complaining.  A minor miracle!

After his appointment - which he is at right now - we will do Gemiini for the 30 minute drive to my appointment, then the 30 minute drive home.   When we get home he will have a 45 minute ioncleanse by amd footbath, dinner, bath and go to bed.  

He is incredibly excited for our annual circus trip in Saturday.
