Burns Family Blog
Fletcher's mother sent out e-mail updates to our friends and
family in order to keep everyone up to date on what's happening.
On January 20, 2007 she started a Blog.
Here is a backup copy of that Blog.

Today TCC took a group of kids to TG Farms in Newcastle, OK. Fletcher had the great privilege to go on this adventure. It was his first pumpkin patch experience. I didn't send Maddie to school today so she and Fletcher could enjoy the trip together. I think I was more excited about it than the two of them put together. This was an amazing blessing for me as a mom. I love fall and always take Maddie to a pumpkin patch to get a few pumpkins. I never dreamed that Fletcher and Maddie would get to go to one together! We had a great morning. We learned all about pumpkins and gourds, pet some animals, went through a hay maze and we were even able to go on the hayride! They just picked up Fletcher's wheelchair and put him on that hay wagon. It was great! Everyone there was so accommodating to these sweet kids it just blessed my heart so much!

I enjoy these pictures so much, just hearing about his everyday fun warms my heart. We all knew he had a personality bigger than his physical problems. He has a family that softly pushes him through this world and it' obsticles. What a life you have provided him. It's so good to see him doing, "his thing" after all the health issues he's been through. He humbles us all, and so does his mom and dad. No matter whats going on, I can smile and remember that sweet smile that has always smiled back. Donna
