It had been two years since we had been to this event. Every year, many of the local Lion’s Clubs in the surrounding area host an annual event called, “Someone Special” where they celebrate the mentally and physically challenged disabled children and adults in the area. The concept is that they are special and in turn, they deserve a “special afternoon where they are comfortable, happy and celebrated for who they are.” This year, the event would be the play, "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown". They hosted 800 guests this year. We had a great time and Dear Son seemed to really enjoy getting out of the host and attending this event.
I took many pictures however I don't think it was Dear Son's best day. I didn't think any of them turned out particularly well, which is a bit unusual for him. I was amazed to see how much he has grown. I never really notice it as much until I see the pictures. The picture on the left is of Dear Son at this same event two years ago, when he was 13 years old and the one on the right is how he looks now, at age 15. Those legs look very long.
Secondly, my apologies for not posting anything in the last week or so. I have been exceptionally tired and not getting more than 1.5 hours sleep in a row. That, along with working more hours and starting a new business have left little time for creative pursuits. I will probably take a few more days off then start back again. Ex Utero and I will be writing the Baby Toby sequel in another week or so and from what I understand, he has several "guest" bloggers which will make some cameo appearances. It looks to be quite an exciting sequel!
