Camp No Limits

We had the honor of going to Camp No Limits Texas this past weekend.  Their mission is to educate, empower, and support individuals with limb differences.  We were so lucky to receive a scholarship for our whole family from Hanger Clinic for camp!

We spent the weekend doing obstacle courses, Nerf Wars, playing sports, panning for gold, and spending time with barnyard animals. Each day, we worked with Occupational and Physical Therapists to teach our family life skills to help Callie as she grows and develops.

Callie was also able to try a running blade for the first time.

Seeing our little girl run for the first time and the look of pure pride and joy on her face was PRICELESS.  She ran up the path to the sound of cheers and clapping.  I cried like a baby and we are going to move heaven and earth to get her one of her own.

The most amazing part was the connection we made with other families.

It’s hard to explain but at times our family can feel isolated and different.  At camp, no one was different.

No one batted an eye when we had to take Callie’s leg off for a break.

No one batted an eye when we had to sit out for one of the activities because she was worn out from running.

No one batted an eye when we had to adapt an activity for her.

We were welcomed with open arms and open hearts.

Every morning, we would meet for “Energizers.” They play music and have the kids do a quick stretch and warm up before starting our activities for the day.  Seeing the kids, of all abilities, dance to “Shut Up and Dance” would choke me up each time.

No worries, no thoughts of differences, no hindrance to their abilities–just dancing.  Magic.  Pure magic.

Hi Y'all! I’m Jaime, a proud working mama, author, girl boss and wifey to an ultra-adorable husband. I am a huge book nerd, I drink coffee like my life depends on it, and run on dry shampoo and Amazon Prime. Leopard print is my favorite color. I am a story teller at heart and this blog is a virtual scrapbook of our crazy beautiful life. I'm a Type One Diabetic and our little warrior princess Callie is a lower limb amputee. By sharing how we’ve chosen to flourish in the garden we’ve been planted in, we hope you can take some small nuggets of hope, inspiration, and laughter. We are so grateful that you’ve found us—welcome to the fam. We embrace our perfectly imperfect lives and don’t let the doctor’s appointments, spreadsheets, speaking engagements, 10th birthday parties to plan, housework or date nights overwhelm us. Those things are just the beautiful reminders of all the blessings in our lives. Read More
