So we had a plan for him at the cottage. Including his wheelchair while we were outside, and his walker only inside.
And everyone knew that he couldn't wrestle and they had to be careful of his back. Nick also showed everyone his back as well. Everyone played pretty well together
Nick knows that he can't swim (for 4 weeks). Which made it difficult for him when we went down to the lake.
We did have a plan for him to be in the water. I covered his back up with some waterproof dressing (that I made up) son that he could stand in the water and get his legs wet, And his back was protected if he got splashed.
But Nick didn't want to stand and play in the water, he only wanted to swim. So we put a chair in the water
But the kids could come to Nick to play
That did make him a bit happier, but he really still did want to swim
Katheryn had lots of fun jumping in the water
And having lots of fun.
I felt bad that Nick couldn't actually go swimming (and have some ideas to make this better for the next time we are at the cottage), while Katheryn had so much fun. But Nick still had fun playing on the boat.
But, in typical Nick fashion, he didn't stay upset for too long and moved on to other activities he likes doing.
The next day at the lake he was better and didn't really want to go in the water
He liked watching from the boat, and giving directions to everyone!
He definitely was happier today by the water than yesterday
After the busy day the day before, and the hot sun, Nick took some time for rest
We went out for our first boat ride of the season!
It was Rory's first time out on the boat, and she wasn't too sure at first
The kids had fun going around the lake
Overall it was a B+ weekend (with only a couple of tears by Nick about what he can't do).
On Sunday we balanced fun with resting!
