      Most of the kids are autistic. That is why the counselor/student ratio is almost 1 to 1 in the pictures.

      My wife is a school teacher and often speaks about autism and how hard it is on the children. I am sure they will remember this day for a long time. Looks like Mary had a blast too.

      Thanks so much Stephen fpr hosting this event. I work with special needs kids in 6th through 8th grade and I love it. It is a second carrer for me as I was a tool and die maker for 20 years before I went back to school to be a special education teacher. The kids never cease to amaze me.

      Good for you Larry. Yep. They are so innocent and can really teach us about life if we listen.

      Such a nice event and so generous of you, Stephen - you are a good person and I'm sure those children (and adults) will remember this day fondly). What a great way to spend time - giving to others.

      I tried to spend part of the day with special people too but could not get to the Koiphen sight it was too busy it said,
      "most men lead lives of quiet desperation and go to the grave with the song
      still in them."
      I wish I could sing

      OK.TN.

      Mary got a call from the academy today and they said they would like to visit again sometime in the next few weeks. They said the kids had more fun at this event than any other.

      If anyone is in the area during this time, you are welcome to join us. It will be a magical day for sure.
