Lots of last minute preparation for the Glow Stick 5k.  This is the fun part of planning when you can buy prizes for those you absolutely go all out in the GlowStick costume arena.  This year we are giving away running headphones with wireless, bluetooth capabilities, a Garmen vivofit that tracks your steps, sleep, calories…, and for those you like to pick out there own prize $100 to Scheels!!!

We cannot wait to see how everyone shows up to the race this year!!

Wheat Thin Pocket?

I told you I would show you the satchel we modified for Taylor’s first flight/traveling experience by himself.  Adding the cardboard (it’s actually an old wheat thin box:-) to the inside of the pocket allowed for the pocket to stay open and be sturdy.  Taylor’s prosthetic fingers are not the most dainty or nimble phalanges; they are actually kind of chubby, stiff, hard to maneuver into tight places, and lack sensitivity. All of these characteristics make it hard for Taylor to store anything or grab anything out of his back pocket, spots where he cannot visibly see what he is grabbing for, or where he would need pry apart the opening to reach into a space.  Basically this cardboard was a lifesaving in the sense Taylor could store and remove/replace his plane tickets into this pocket with ease.  The pocket huge around his neck making the tickets easily accessible at all times!
