|Speech in the pumpkin patch with BIG pumpkins!|
On Sunday we got to meet the therapists, other kids and parents. James seemed to be doing okay once he started playing, but he was definitely a bit unsure of what was going on and why he was surrounded by strangers. Monday James and I arrived ready to go. First we had circle time with his group and played music. The look on James' face was priceless. Like 'seriously? I get to play all these instruments?' It got even better when James had music first. He had a blast playing guitar and the chimes. Then he went to speech and the parents were quickly kicked out.

We weren't allowed to watch for most of the sessions so I don't know exactly what they did, but it was intense. They definitely pushed James as much as they could before he would just refuse and meltdown. On Wednesday morning I was sitting in the kitchen making James eggs for breakfast and he was playing with his memory cards. I showed him the lion which is one of his favorites, but this time not only did he sign it he said "li"! I was so excited! He's never made a "l" sound.
All in all Adam's Camp was an amazing experience for James! He did amazing and seemed to have a blast. We can't wait to go back! I have no doubt we'll be back many more times!
