Sam’s summer news
Posted by stuff4sam on August 6, 2007
Not to everyone’e taste, but we are enjoying this wet and cool summer. Sam finds hot weather sometimes a bit difficult to cope with due to his lack of temperature control mechanism. But for the last few days, we seem to have a proper summer at last!!
Recently, we had a local scout camp at our nearby field and Sam enjoyed watching their activities! As they celebrated Scouting’s 100th anniversary this year, they cooked a number of international meals, including Japanese Teriyaki!
Our friend Alex, who is a pilot, flew over the field to take some pictures of the camp. Alex is Sam’s ‘uncle’ (indeed he is Neil’s best friend from his childhood and now Sam’s hero!) and Sam absolutely adores him. He was so excited to see his plane flying over him and as he flew so low, we could see him waving at us!! We are hoping Sam will fly in his plane very soon!!
Sam is doing really well with his chin control especially after the rep changed the speed setting. Now we really need to keep eye on him, otherwise he just zooms away!!
We also managed to find some very good accessible toys – a water gun and radio controlled car. Sam uses his switches very well and loves giving a sudden water spray to us! But I wonder sometimes if these toys are for Sam or Neil!?
We hope you enjoy your summer too and hope the weather gets better and better for all of you.
