Blind leading the blind...

Lexi loves to help out around the house.  Her lack of sight makes some tasks more challenging, so we are often looking for ways to include her in chores and other ways to help.  The other day we were all sitting down to dinner.  Elli was down in her room.  I asked, "Lexi, would you like to go get Elli and bring her to dinner?"  Keep in mind that when Elli doesn't want to come, even our strong teenage boys have a hard time getting her upstairs.  Without hesitation, Lexi said she would help.  With her cute and unique "excited walk" she headed downstairs.

Several minutes later, Lexi walks into the kitchen with her hands on Elli's shoulders, guiding Elli toward the dinner table.  (Fortunately Elli was feeling like coming up that day! :)  I was so proud of our Lex.  Always willing to take on any challenge, including being the "sighted guide" for her very disabled sister. Way to go, Lexi!
