Falling fruit

A couple of months ago, we discovered that Will thought the sound of things hitting the floor was hilarious. Until recently, the best laugh occurred when Luke's ankle braces hit the wood floor (of course, they were not on Luke at the time). We're always on the lookout for new ways to laugh as a family.

For Christmas, Will received the most wonderful gift - a set of wooden "cuttable" fruit from Rena and Steve. The fruit are held together by small circles of velcro and the set comes with a wooden knife with which to cut apart the velcro.

The set is great for occupational therapy, speech therapy, learning colors and shapes... but who knew that it could be the start of hours of fun at our house just by hitting the floor? Of course the video below isn't the manufacturer's recommended usage for the cuttable fruit. But just checkout how much fun falling fruit can be!

If you get the blog update via email, you have to download the video to see it. If you don't want to do that, but still want to see the video (I highly recommend it!), view the blog on the web at
