This past summer she started kayaking. She loves it. She is a great partner for her dad. I am sure in the not so distant future she will be ready for a kayak of her own.
Abby also played soccer this year with our local recreation department. She did have times when she got nervous on the field when she couldn't see her team mates and lost track of the game. She did love being part of a team. She was great soccer player before she was blind and it was wonderful to see that while she couldn't see the ball she could still do pretty awesome

Abby also ran her first 5k this fall with her dad in October. It was a great first running experience and I am sure she will do it again. I hope to get a chance to do my 5k this year and I hope Abby joins me.

A few weeks ago she went skiing for the very first time and LOVED it. She just has that personality where she loves to try new things. The instructors at the ski area said she was a very fast learner. She is going skiing her her dad today. She has the bug.
Abby has started to do after school activities. She did Jump Rope Club this year. She has done it before and she enjoyed it. Its just a few weeks long but its lots of fun. She also joined her school dance crew.She worked so hard and they just had their first dance performance last week and she did great. She did a great job. There was in a large group on the stage and she did wonderful. She did great with all the moves. I was able to find a clip that didn't include the other kids. Its posted it below.
