Greetings it is a beautiful morning at Camp New Hope! Meet the Norris family Dad (Brian) Mom (Crystal) Alex (15) Tiffany (13) Kristian (11) and our special guest Randy (5) and Gracie (4). Randy has spinocerbella Ataxia and has the coolest braces for his legs that enables him to walk. Mom says that Randy will eventually be in a wheelchair and his hands will be crippled but we are going to pray for a miracle and sit back and see what God can do. Gracie has cerebral palsy, developmental delay, speech and language deficits, strabismus, near sightedness, is in a wheelchair and can not talk but she does know how to communicate. She just had double hip replacement and is still recovering.
Alex and Dad are fishing this morning and will be canoeing shortly, Randy rode the Adkins mini copter here at the camp last night and wasn’t sure if he liked it or not. He just kept saying “SCARED”. Mom, Tiffany, Kristian, Randy and Gracie are going to Big Ivy Art Studio to make something with clay. We plan to grill hamburgers with the family for lunch and Mr. and Mrs. Holt brought by fresh corn last night so we will have with that with the burgers. We have a busy next few days, a trip to ride the horse and buggy and then a visit from our own Santa Clause which is always a BIG HIT! I am sure we will be in the water a lot this week with the warmer temperatures.
Please remember this family as well as all the Camp New Hope Families in your thoughts and prayers. We have a full year with some families scheduled in Mr. Corpenings overflow cabin as well as in my cabin. God bless you for all you do! Happy 4th of July next weekend.
