This past weekend Waverly was at Jill's House. We packed her bags for her overnight adventure and dropped her off on Friday night after dinner. As always she was all giggles as we walked through the door. She happily took the hand of a volunteer and off she went to settle into her pod for the evening. She had one of her favorite staff members assigned to her for the weekend, Jenny. She loved her time in the pool, playing chase in the gym (Jenny said she was laughing so hard and would look back to be sure Jenny was still chasing her), watching a movie in the pod and playing on the playground.
Matt and I really enjoy the opportunity to do some special things with Oliver, whilst Waverly is away. We went into DC Saturday for a nice lunch at one of our favorite restaurants. We then went to the Botanical Gardens and the art museum. Oliver's favorite part of the day was riding the escalator over and over again. A close second was simply being able to run through the gardens and climb. We had such a lovely day.
We are always anxious to pick Waverly up Sunday night and we are typically counting down the hours until our reunion. We arrived to find a very happy, but very tired little girl on our hands. She did great!! I am simply so grateful to have such an incredible resource within our community.
