|Phillip and Felix|
|Putting his photo on the board|
One of the highlights of this morning was being able to get some photos of Felix with his (not so little) buddy, Phillip. Neither Felix, nor Phillip, tend to spend extended periods of time playing closely with other children, so to see them sitting next to each other, exchanging glances and smiles for a good few minutes, was pretty awesome. They even gave each other a high-five! In their own unique way, they seem to really like each other and make a cute pair sitting together. Phillip is almost twice as tall as Felix and is a year and a half older, but they just seem very content together. It's funny, because Felix gets nervous when tiny, little children are around him, and yet he chooses one of the biggest kids to be friends with!
Isaiah (14) started his work experience week at our local special school, today. I'm so proud of him! He has always had a special bond with Felix, and definitely has a heart for kids with a few extra challenges. He came home, this afternoon, so excited about his day. He really enjoyed it and thought all the kids were fantastic. While I was waiting to pick Isaiah up, a lady came up to me excited to meet Felix. It turns out, she is a regular reader of my blog. It's a small world! It's always really humbling to meet people who enjoy reading what I write. To the lady I met today (you know who you are), thank you for coming and introducing yourself, and thanks for your encouragement. It's people like you who make writing my blog so worthwhile!
