Saturday 21/07/90-Sponsored walk

Dear Vanessa

I hope you got my last letter ok!  Time flies, and it won’t be long until we will be in Cape Town again.

Saturday 21/07/90

Jamie had a sponsored walk on at school. His teacher assured me I didn’t have to walk with him as they had no major roads to cross. So I left him to walk and went to get Hughan.

When I got back to school, Jamie had walked the measured kilometre twice and had decided he didn’t want to walk again.

So I said I would walk once around with him and Hughan. I gave Hughan a piggyback which he really enjoyed.

On Sunday we played with all the noise making toys. Hughan is also asking to play our piano and he plays quite well using his fingers.

(I started this website to help other patents with deaf children through our experience. Our son Hughan was born in 1988 and was diagnosed profoundly deaf at 14 months old. We kept a Diary, so his progress could be tracked between our lessons, as we were living in Gaborone in Botswana and traveled every 3 months to the Carel du Toit Centre in Cape Town.)
