I also was invited to join a friend and her son (also with a disability) to participate in a parks and recreation art class for 2 to 4-year-olds. I was previously thinking about trying the music exploration class, but the more I read the description, the more I think art might be a better (quieter) way to go this year. Erik's hearing is still very sensitive and terms like "family music jam" seem a bit off-putting. We'll do it next year.
It's settled, then -- Jesus and art.
I have butterflies in my stomach, as this will be the first time we have done anything like this. I remember participating in classes like these as a child, and I wouldn't trade the memories for anything. Now it's Erik's turn.
I'm so scared. But I'm so ready.
