Swim With a Stud-Muffin

Living from the Heart is offering an amazing dolphin retreat in Sept.










This is Seth with Amizcle, (Uh-MEEZ-clay) the enormous 600 lb playful loving dolphin stud-muffin (he’s got like 18 kids). He is the guy we spent most of our time with when we made the trip to Mexico in November.

If you have a child with special needs, they will be 100% accommodated and no one bats an eye at any behaviors. If you have only typicals, they will have a blast. All are welcome.

If you’ve always wanted to go to Mexico, or swim with the dolphins this is a great opportunity for a family vacation with lodging and most meals covered in the cost.

$1,888.50 for a family of four.

If a retreat is not in the cards for you this year, perhaps enjoy living vicariously by reading Macy’s blog¬†and watching the videos of the dolphins on her site. It is so relaxing to do so. File Cozumel in your dreams and perhaps one day, maybe sooner than you think, you’ll be experiencing Amizcle’s magic for yourself. You never know.










I’ll never get over Riley riding a dolphin across that pool. She started showering on her own after we got home from the trip. No longer afraid to get her face wet. No longer afraid to let go of me in the water. I know I probably already blogged this but I am still in awe and will never take it for granted. She’s upstairs in the shower right now as I type this. Last year I had to stand there the whole time. Rinse her hair for her. Listen to her cry over it. Flinching the whole time. Now she does it herself. To me, this is a miracle. This is a load off. This is a step toward living independently one day. I really adore Macy who runs the program and can’t say enough good about it. So pardon me if I repeat myself like an old grandmother who doesn’t remember what she told you yesterday(I truly often don’t remember what I wrote yesterday). Indulge me, while I sit here typing, drinking my tea, not rinsing my child’s hair.










I really hope to tell as many people as possible about Living from the Heart.

Did I mention since we got back, when I tuck Seth in at night I pretend to give him sonar? I put my lips to his forehead and make dolphin sonar noises. He pretends to only tolerate it, but secretly he loves it. I know he does.
