Alex was invited to a trampoline birthday party this weekend and it was an amazing success.
The party was at Xtreme Trampoline. Most of the kids from Alex's autism class came and they had a great time.
It was quiet. Other than the kids at the party, there were only ten or twelve other kids there. They bounced for an hour (although most lost steam at around 45 minutes). They had some pizza and cake afterwards.
It was really great to see smiles and enthusiasm without tantrums or panics. This is how childhood parties are supposed to be. It was a welcome relief for all the parents.
