Orbit’s Easter ABCs

I started to watch The Secret Life of Walter Mitty movie last week (I still have to finish it, so no spoilers please). At the start of the movie, Walter describes the man he would like to be – Adventurous, Brave and Creative (an ABC man). Without intentionally setting out to do so, I believe we have managed to fit in the ABCs into Orbit’s Easter.

Adventurous

Orbit climbed his first sand dune!¬†Once he got to the top he just ran and ran and ran. He just didn’t want to stop. The poor little thing absolutely crashed once we got back on Medina, sleeping for nearly 3 hours.

Brave

Just before Easter Orbit needed to get his hearing checked. Getting his ears tested was completely foreign to anything he has previously experienced. He was so brave despite the fear he was experiencing.

Creative

Similar to Christmas, Easter presented an opportunity for Orbit to get creative. After I cut out some egg shaped cards, he decorated them with different coloured paints. Luckily he was able to get most of the paint on the card rather than the table, upholstery or himself.

Happy Easter from Orbit, the Skipper and I, we hope you had a wonderful one!
