Where else can you go that will put your child, wheelchair and all, on the ride?

Having a child with special needs doesn't have to be a scary thing. Yes, there will be scary days. Perhaps a medical diagnosis, or a new developmental diagnosis. You take those, you work on them, and you move on. Me personally, I don't feel like caring for Arina is any different than caring for my other children. Each child has different needs, and we work on all of those. But we are a family, all of our children are equal, and all are treated the same.

The Utah state fair just happened to start while we were there. We were excited because the fair was always something we did together.

Our trip to Utah was so much fun! I really miss home, and there are a lot of good and bad things about moving, so I have to concentrate on the good. Like in Utah, Arina would have gotten a measly 4 hours a week of preschool. Here she gets 3 1/2 hours, 5 days a week. No comparison on where she will do better! Jax health and doctors was another huge reason, probably the most important reason we moved. Not to mention that every weekend we are trying to decide what to do because there are so many choices! Going back to Utah only to visit made me see there is actually a lot to do there. The first day we went with my parents and sister (who actually also lives here in California too) to the zoo.
