Postscript to Shoe Dilemma: I still have not decided what shoes to wear. Thank you so much to everyone who made suggestions! I wish I had the guts to wear Crocs - I loved Julia's idea of dressing them up!! Wearing pants is a serious option as well - as a couple people mentioned, my shoes would probably not attract much attention that way. Dawn's idea of sneaking in comfortable shoes to wear under the table is fantastic - I think I might do that. I'll let you know what happens.

If You're Happy and You Know It!
Today I was the parent volunteer at Bennett's Jr. PATH program. He goes to this program two mornings a week and gets treatment from all of his therapists along with four other kids. I could just hang out as they went through the routine, do a craft or bring something for show and tell. I considered bringing Murphy for a split second and then gave my head a good shake. Believe it or not I brought a craft! We made foam door hangers with stickers following an outdoorsy theme. You can see the picture of the one Bennett and I made above. The kids seemed to like it - Bennett however, was not that interested but I managed to coax him into finishing.
My favourite part of the day was watching them as they went through their gross motor activities. Bennett loves music and as you can see in the videos below, he especially loves the song, "If You're Happy and You Know It". Watch the videos below at your own risk - there is extreme cuteness involved!!
