Vision Therapy Graduation

Tyler's mom, aka Mimi, came up on Thursday to watch one of Keeler's soccer games and to attend his Vision Therapy Graduation.

Obviously, our soccer stud had quite the cheering squad because Uncle Troy, Granny and Shalie all joined us too.  Keeler loves to have fans and played a great game. We ended up with a tied game.

After the game we went to dinner.

Friday morning at work we hosted Chamber Coffee in honor of our new employee, Ryan.  He's just the best and we're excited to have him join our team.
Even our littles came out to celebrate.

In the afternoon, we headed over to Keeler's Vision Therapy Graduation!  We picked up his sweet therapist, Mrs. Nancy, some flowers.  The little cowboys were so excited to give them to her. 
Mrs. Nancy had the therapy room all decorated for Keeler.  It was super sweet and melted this mom's heart.  We're going to miss Mrs. Nancy.

We're so thankful for this process. 32 weeks later and Keeler is like a different kid. His reading has improved, he's less clumsy but more importantly he has a lot more confidence to try new things. He's always had 20/20 vision but hated reading and wasn't enjoying learning. Thanks to a very special teacher, Mrs. Nordyke,  going above and beyond working one-on-one with him and recommending we have him tested by a behavioral eye specialist we discovered his focus and tracking were poor. We can't express enough the gratitude we have for everyone involved in this process - especially Mrs. Nordyke. He's put in a lot of work and it's paid off! We're so excited to continue to watch him flourish. Good job, buddy! 

Just a few more pics to mark the special occasion.  I love my guys!
Granny and Mimi both played a significant part in Keeler's therapy.  There were a few times when we were away from the little cowboys over the past 32 weeks.  These two stepped up and helped Keeler complete his daily exercises.  Mimi completed a similar program when she was young so they both offered great support, guidance and understanding. Thank you so much!

P.S. When we got home, the little cowboys were eager to show our newest bucket calf to his new home.
Poor little guy has a broken leg.  Tyler splinted it and is going to get a cast on him.
So there you go folks, meet the newest member to our fam - "Little Red."  
He also answers to "Rojito."
