Go Charlotte, Go!

Since Charlotte was diagnosed with Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis at age 2, we didnt know what that would do to her in regards to how she would or could handle physical activity.
Now Charlotte is 4 and has two older sisters who ski, swim, do ballet & tap and now... rollerblade. And anything they can do, Charlotte wants to do as well. And sometimes we forget that she has arthritis because she's SOOOOO happy! And she loves SPEED! And she falls down on her bum and tells us it hurts and then she gets back up again!
Spring is around the corner! Changes in nature..... changes in the girls... growing up.... growing up with a disease. 2 years after diagnosis - this is what happiness looks like! This is living PAIN-FREE! This is a happy day! One day at a time & rejoicing in the fun, the ability, & the enthusiasm & rejoicing in today!
