Be Yourself!

I know it's hard not to try to be someone else. Don't be afraid to just be you. Your true friends will like you no matter what. They won't see your disability, they just see you. I learned that the hard way. In seventh grade, it was really hard because sometimes at lunch kids would ignore me a lot. I wanted to be friends with some of those kids so bad. I started doing a small group lunch and it was awesome. I could actually have conversations. I've learned what real friends are. I used to think everyone who was nice to me was my friend, but now I know that some kids are just people you know.

You have to identify the characteristics of a person before making a friend.  A friend is always there for you. Real friends can be trusted and will tell you the truth. So don't try to act a certain way just to be friends with someone you think is cool. BE YOURSELF. Anyone who doesn't think you're cool enough was never your friend anyway.

Guess what? My blog has a FACEBOOK page!

Friends and Summer!

Disabled people can still have a great summer. I've been frustrated because so much of my summer is at physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy and appointments! I've been extremely busy. I've made time to hang out with some of my friends, though. I've already been to Kansas to hang out with my cousins and will be going to Iowa later this month. 

I am so lucky to have some really good friends, especially Jake and Tyson. I have a lot of really great friends. They treat me like everyone else. We laugh a lot and most of my friends like to tease my sister and that is fun to watch! Friends are one of the highlights of summer. Sometimes I miss school, but when I see my friends I feel all better. Disabled kids need friends to get through tough times. Not just friends, good friends.  I guess everyone needs that. Summer isn't good without good friends. I really want to go fishing with some of my friends this summer. I hope I get to. My parents say I need an adult to be with me and I hate that. I won't fall in the water!

 I'm getting a lot stronger. I still have to use a g-tube, but I have been able to eat a bunch of stuff! It's sooo good to eat again! In August, I will have another swallowing study. Hopefully, I will get permission to eat whatever I want! 

A special shout-out to Carter, who commented on my last post. He is an awesome kid and he is a lot like me (awesome). He's got a positive attitude and you know I love that!
