Camp John Marc 2007

We just had a wonderful weekend at Camp John Marc. This is a camp for kids with special needs. This weekends camp was for families that have a child with Spina Bifida. There were about 16 families there, most of which were from North Texas. It was so great to see all of these different kids and their abilities. It was wonderful to meet so many other parents that understand what it is like to have a child with Spina Bifida and all the things that go with that diagnoses. The camp provided several activities for us to do. We had a campfire with s'mores the first night, Caleb was mostly interested in the graham cracker, he didn't quite know what to think about the marshmallow. Caleb got to pet a snake (yikes), a bird, and a bunny. He also made some slime with daddy. Saturday night was a carnival in the barn with all the families and their kids, that was the most fun. Caleb was in his mobile stander and I have to tell you that I have never seen that boy be so social. He was all over the place, playing with different people, giving other mom's hugs, and he followed this adorable little girl with curly blonde hair around (she did have a snow cone in her hand so we aren't sure if it was her or the snow cone Caleb was after). I was just so proud of him, he had such a blast that night. We went fishing this morning but didn't catch anything, Caleb enjoyed it when another dad caught a fish and let Caleb touch it. Anyway we had a great time, this camp is such a wonderful place and we are looking forward to going back next year.
