Last Saturday, September 19, we took Kanton to a Carnival for kids with Autism and there families. The organization that put on the carnival is call Sahara Cares. This organization is so awsome. This carnival was all FREE!!! They provided a shirt for the child with autism and then game them a little bag with lots of little fun stuff inside.
Then they had like, 10 of those big blow up bouncy houses. They provided lunch for all that attended the carnival. We had hotdogs, chips, fruit snacks, either water or poweraid and of course cupcakes. Now remember, this was all free!Nothing beats free like this.Then they had about 25 different relay games for the kids to do. After finishing each game the child got to choose a prize.
One of the most amazing things for Kanton was that they had a cute little Train! Thats right a TRAIN!!! Kanton had a hard time at first. But then he didn't want to get off. So I think Kanton rode the train like 10 times.
They also had a bug scavanger hunt for the kids and what ever little bug they found they got to put in a little bug box and of course they got to keep them all.
One of the good things for me was that I was able to send Kanton and Rob to ride the train and I was able to go to the information part of the carnival. It was so good to be able to get all that information. They had like 20 different booths.
I am so greatful that we were able to take Kanton to this fun carnival. Not only did it allow Kanton to hve tons of fun and get all of the attention, it also helped Rob and I realize that there are a LOT of people out there that are in the same boat at we are. I was so over whelmed with how many people were there.
I just want to Thank our Heavenly Father for this wonderful opportunity. To be able to raise on of his choice children. I am eternally greatful.
I look forward to the many awsome opportunities that Kanton will bring to us and for all of the knowledge that (Kanton and the challenges that he has) we will learn......
