Field Day… the day that most kids dream about all year-long. An entire day of being outside running around screaming. No math books or computer classes… just a day filled with snow cones, water slides and did I mention, running around screaming. For a kid on the spectrum who is sensitive to noise, who craves structure, who absolutely cannot handle loosing any game… well you would think that it would be a sure set up for disaster. You would think that… but you would be wrong!
Jay was a trooper. He withstood the 92 Degree heat without whining. He waited his turn without complaining. He handled defeat without one single tear. He did AWESOME!!!!
And I was fortunate to have been there to see it all. Check these out.
The other kids were so sweet. They routed him on and helped him out. I had to hold back tears of happiness all day long. I cannot even begin to describe to you how incredible it feels to see other kids treating your baby like that. Like a friend and with respect!
Of course there were still times when he just needed to chill out on his own!
It was a great day!
