The Fourth of July was filled with fun, family time. The kids enjoyed several activities (I will share those pictures in the Almost Wordless Wednesday-Cousins Edition) before it was dark enough for the real action.
I have to say that the kids did a great job playing several hours together. The tension only grew once the fireworks overwhelmed those with sensory issues. At that point, the parents quickly saw what was happening and headphones and Crazy Aaron’s Thinking Putty helped calm nerves until it was just too loud. I know that many people were deciding what to do about the fourth; I believe that each year, my son can tolerate a bit more and is doing a better job removing himself when it gets too much for him.
Here are a few of our pictures from the evening!
