Class of 2009
Today was Bennett's big day - he graduated from the Jr. PATH program at our local Children's Treatment Centre. As expected the cuteness factor was almost too much. All of the kids seemed a bit overwhelmed with all the people there but did a great job anyway. They began the ceremony by performing a tapping song and then followed that up with an inspiring version of "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star". After that came the graduation march and first up was Bennett.
He looked pretty confused at first but once the applause started he got into the swing of things and had to be pushed out of the way. Every time I watch the video I laugh. At the time my eyes were too filled with tears to notice my little guy hamming it up.
I can't say enough about this amazing program. Everyone single wonderful person involved is dedicated to the children. We are so grateful that Bennett was able to participate. I attribute many of the gains he has made over the last few months to the Jr. PATH program. We are also very excited about the fact that he has been invited to attend the Sr. PATH program in September. We can't wait (although summer can take its time).
