There is a long trampoline that the kids can run on. At the end is a big pit of sponges to jump into. Bennett loved running on the mat but refused to jump into the pit despite repeated demonstrations from the birthday boy.
Bennett tried hard to jump on the trampoline like the other kids. He was very convincing -bending and then standing up with his hands over his head! The video above isn't the greatest because as usual I turned the camera on too late. I told his physiotherapist about his efforts so she's going to work with him on the trampoline to see if we can get some real jumping!
Funny Story - Bennett loves to flirt and make new friends and he made a special one at the party. My friend's grandmother is a wonderful woman who is now 88. Bennett of course recognized her charm right away and proceeded to flirt with her for the entire party - stopping to smile and wave every time he ran by and then giving her a big hug after lunch. Before I left I was speaking with her and she asked me to come and visit her some time. I told her I would love to but thought she would be pretty busy. Without a blink she quickly agreed and told me I would probably have to make an appointment! I laughed so hard - I hope so much that I'm half as busy when I'm 88!
