Mom's walk yesterday

We took Mom out to Fort Hunt Park yesterday, where she chugged along for 680 yards at a strong and steady pace. The weather was cool, but Dad had bundled Mom up pretty thoroughly, so she was fine.

When we got home, Mom again chose to use the deck stairs instead of the ramp to get to the house's back door. We're proud of her determination; climbing those five steps is one of the few remaining ways for Mom to demonstrate-- and experience-- a measure of dignity.
