They only charged $10 a kid. Which included a t-shirt, a tote full of goodies, meals and snacks, a magician/clown, crafts, and activities in great facilities (the new Hendrix Athletic Center). They could have charged a lot more; I mean, clearly they weren't in this to make money. They did it for these kids, which makes my eyes fill up with tears just thinking about it.
He had a really fun day. He said he enjoyed playing Follow the Leader outside. They got to do walking activities outside, dancing and exercise inside, swimming in the pool and other water activities, and they even got to try out the big climbing wall. I'm really grateful for everyone who volunteered to help the kids have an involved day. Today in the mail, we got a card with a picture he had drawn for us that day.The parents were invited to come watch a slide show/award presentation. For some reason (sensory integration reasons...he can't always process what he's feeling, and he gets overwhelmed), he was very upset for us to be in there, and we had to hide around a corner so he couldn't see us (but we could still see everything) during the whole presentation. Here is he, showing off his medal, certificate, and art project. I am crazy about this kid.
