Surfing, kayaking and other beach activities

We are so fortunate to have Lorenzo is the ABA therapy program that we do. They are AWESOME!!!!!! Nearly every weekend they have some sort of adventure planned. A few weeks ago it was ice skating then paddle boarding and today it was kayaking. Lorenzo was having one of his days but warmed up quickly. He loves one of the skills trainers (pictured in numerous shots with Lorenzo) and if anyone can get Lorenzo out of his funk it is Mr. Matt. Riley missed out on kayaking today because he had a sleep over at school for student council. Yes you heard me right, I think it is a bit strange but maybe it is just because we never did things like that when I was in school. We missed him but he had a ton of fun at school.











videoHere is Riley's first attempts at surfing. he only wiped out a few times and I think the instructor fell off the board twice. He loved it. Aces hooked up with this awesome organization that takes kids (and adults) who have disabilities surfing. It was so much fun to see all of these people out there helping each other. They are awesome, they even took Riley so he would not feel left out.

Oh my goodness, that sounds so fun! How's Lorenzo doing in school ... does he still like it? Will they have these weekend adventures anywhere you go, or is that just exclusive to Hawaii? And then can your whole family participate in the activities? How nice to have your weekends planned so nicely!

Lorenzo looks like he is having so much fun out there. I've got to say, the beaches in HI put ours back east to shame. You live in a beautiful place!
