|Think this kid loves sledding?|
I love sledding with Teddy for several reasons:
- He loves being outside.
- He loves playing with snow ... and eating it.
- Sledding is great for his core.
- Sledding also gives him opportunities to work on his fine motor and speech.
The sledding hill was the great equalizer for Teddy this past weekend. His challenges and delays weren't as obvious because he was one of the kids, laughing and playing in the snow. So what if he got pulled to the top of the hill every time? All the other kids tried to con us into pulling them up, too. And realistically, he would have hopped to the top if all the other children wouldn't have aimed their sleds right for him.

I even commented to Dave that things were easier for those moments because Teddy seemed more like the other children ... it was less work even though we were hauling 40 pounds up the hill at minimum, depending on how many other kiddos jumped in the sled.
