Hello everyone, this is Forrest Allen. Here is an update of what I have been doing recently.
This fall I will be attending Kettle Run High school to take a US history class. This past week I visited the High school to meet with the people who work there and see my classroom. It was great to meet the new people at the High school and I am looking forward to taking the class soon. The Principal Mr Warner is cool. My PT Cara, OT Brian and I took a map to figure out how to move around the school.
I have been swimming with Del my physical therapist with his help I am gaining strength to do 3 different strokes and snorkeling. Thank you to all of my friends who are letting me swim in their pool. I am happy to be back in the water and swimming again.
Recently I have been learning and practicing playing the ukulele for fun and to work on being able to play it well. Its great to practice it because I have gotten better at playing it the more I have tried to play it. It is fabulous to be able to play during my free time from school and sports. Here is a YouTube clip of me playing ukulele with my friend Ben.
I used to have trouble with my left hand and it was tough to have happen and a bummer not to be able to use my left hand. I worked hard to get my movement back. Now it feels good to have the use of my left hand back. I like to play with Gio and Ben
Thank you all for your help and support in the past. It means a lot. Hope you’re all doing well.
Thanks from Forrest Allen
