My Journal - Week 66 (23Nov10)
Without harping too much about how well my play group is going, I wanted just to put out a quick post about what a wonderful Play Day we had because two dads were there to enjoy the group as well!
My YMCA Play to Learn for Kids with Special Needs is truly not only for Mom's and their kids but also for the entire family as can be seen here in these wonderful photos that Penny took for us all! John was able to accompany Hunter and I to our Play Day this Tuesday, and Darwin (Penny's husband) is a regular who keeps his son Vaun motivated every step of the way! Play to Learn is open to all family members and caregivers! So please make sure if anyone wants to join that they know they are always welcome to do so!
Also a special note for those interested, the Durham Down syndrome Association is putting on their annual kids Christmas party for families of children with Down syndrome. It will be held at the Whitby Rotary Park - Whitby Marina. For each child attending, parents are asked to purchase a gift under $10.00 for Santa to give to the child. The event is scheduled for 2-4pm on this Saturday 27th November 2010. Any questions can be directed to the Durham Down syndrome Association at www.ddsa.ca Check the website for more specific details.
And now, here are the recent Play group photos:
