July…How did THAT happen?

So I know I owe everyone a catch-up post (Can you believe summer is HALF over??) We've been very busy this summer with lots of camps, lots of beach time, a little family fitness, and tons of F-U-N! This has been an EPIC week for Aidan, and I simply must share it! Get ready for LOTS of photos!

This week, Aidan attended a Waterman's Camp at North Island Surf & Kayak, and it was AWESOME! Surfing, Kayaking, Stand-up Paddle Boarding - he got to do it all! Whatever the conditions were best for that day. And I got to tag along for a couple of their adventures too! Many thanks to Shane and our new friends at North Island Surf & Kayak for a super fun week!

How do you cap off such an exciting week? With one more adventure, of course! I surprised Aidan with a private surfing lesson o, Saturday with Yamada Atsushi, aka "Hot Sushi" to his students and fellow surfers!


EDIT: There was a GREAT article about Sushi in today's paper here in Savannah. You can check it out here, and please feel free to share the article and like Sushi's page on facebook here.


Aidan had a blast and had an AMAZING first lesson! Look out, Uncle Kyle - somebody is gonna want to be tagging along to surf with the cool kids! Check out my little shredder!

WHEW! What a week! I must mention in this post that ALL of this would not have been possible without Brain Balance. Improvements in coordination, balance, rhythm, timing, confidence, listening skills, following directions, staying on task - these are all by-products of correcting Aidan's hemispheric imbalance. For more information about the Brain Balance Program, please visit their website here.

And finally, check out my new motto:
Zac+Brown+Band+Uncaged


You all know by now that we are HUGE fans of Zac Brown Band! Their new album, "Uncaged," was released this week and is AWESOME! Hands down, the new favorite album for our entire family! If you don't own it already, do yourselves a favor and get it TODAY! "Uncaged" can be downloaded from iTunes, or purchased from ZBB's website here.


Much love,

Allie
