Rocket Ship 1 May 2014 SNAG-0011Knees Up, Push & Blast Off!

Okay, so a few weeks ago at PT they let Rhema try to roll around on this kind of “skateboard” contraption.  The one they gave us was yellow and had no back on it so Rhema kept falling off backwards.  I saw this one at Wal-mart and we bought it for her to try.  The goal is for Rhema to pull her her knees and then use her feet to push off to propel herself.  The problem is (like always) is that her feet are turned inward and she cannot get a good footing to push herself.  Plus, it seems that, in this position, she has trouble pulling her knees up too.  So, I’m not sure if this “exercise” will be very helpful to her, but she seemed to enjoy it some.  We will put her back on her “skateboard” (she named it that) a few more times and see how she does.  Either way, she was darn cute on it and she loved wearing her helmet!  LOL!
