Well, as you might recall, my Little Bird turned EIGHT! We threw her a birthday party at Friendship Circle (the totally awesome place/organization dedicated to children with special needs and their families) and lots of her friends came. Here's a bit of what happened...
|You didn't expect a boring message like |
"Happy 8th Birthday" did you?
There were swings...
|There was purple sand!|
|There was music|
|Of course there was cotton candy and sno-cones|
Best of all, there were friends....
|With her pal Jacob|
|Hard to believe it's been 5+ years since these guys met in ABA/OT|
|Marni was assigned as Bird's Friendship Circle volunteer about 4 years ago and it was a match made in heaven. She surprised us by coming home from college to attend the party and get a special hug from the birthday girl!!|
|(Not GFCF. We paid for that later in the week)|
|I am smiling because I had an enormous amount of help throwing this party from Ben and his parents. |
Seriously, I could never have done any of it without them!
Also, smiling because I know I have a whole year until I do this all over again.
Happy Birthday, LB!!
