And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

AFOs Finally and Last Swim Lesson
We started out our morning picking up Rachel's new AFOs from Hanger. Grandma Eisen went with us today. We had a very long wait time after Rachel's AFOs were checked for fit until the orthotist returned back to the room.
Rachel's expression in this picture expresses all of our feelings about the wait time. I didn't get very good pictures of Rachel's new AFOs today but will post more when I take some better pics.

We did however find out that she would need a size 6. The great thing about the size 6 is that Rachel has a box filled with size 6 shoes up her closet that a friend of mine gave me when her daughter outgrew them.Now that Rachel will have AFOs for both day and night time I am going to start using skin prep on her heels and the tops of her feet.
Grandma Eisen is a shopper! She bought Rachel 2 new swimsuits from Gymboree. They are so cute!

Tonight was Rachel's last swim lesson. She was the only baby there tonight. We had a great experience with swim lessons. Thank you Jen! We hope to have you as Rachel's swim instructor this fall! Tonight was fun night so Rachel was able to play with the toys with Breanne. She still wouldn't say "octopus" but we will work on it for future lessons.
