Thank you Bounce U!!!!

On Monday night there was a special needs night at the Clarksburg Bounce U. We signed Michael up not knowing what to expect. He is really freaked out by lots of noise and the unexpected so we were a little nervous.

When Steve and Michael got there, there were only two other children there. The three of them had the whole place to themselves!! Michael was climbing things I NEVER thought he'd be able to climb, throwing a ball overhand at targets, and generally having an awesome time.

One of the best parts was a huge round climber where he had to use his arms to pull/push himself up through a mesh to get to the next level. It took him a while to figure it out, but he did it, and Steve got a huge "TADA" when he got to the top. I don't think I've ever seen Michael looking so happy and proud of himself.

Steve took so many pictures and video it feels like was there with them. I am a little nervous that there were so few kids.. I really want them to do another special needs night so that kids like Michael who would normally be too intimidated get a chance to find out how fun it is. So, if you are local, I'll definitely be posting when the next one is announced. Definitely an event not to be missed!
