Are You Ready for a Good Time?

I was going to post this tomorrow but I'm so excited that I'm posting it now!!!

No, I'm ready for a GREAT time!!

Why?

You see, this weekend is THE 2ND ANNUAL FLORIDA KEYS SOUTHERNMOST SURFERS FOR AUTISM BEACH FESTIVAL!!!!

This is the first time that I am participating in a Surfers for Autism event and I cannot wait.

Instead of participating as the parent of a participant, I am going to volunteer. Hopefully next time I can do it with my kids!

What can you expect from a Surfers for Autism event?

"At a SFA event, our surfers are provided a safe environment where two to four highly skilled and trained surf instructors carefully guide them into waves. Our surfers and their families are treated like rock stars and enjoy a day filled with a range of activities including stand up paddle boarding, kayaking, live music, face-painting, games, bounce houses, fire engine tours and much more. A catered lunch is also provided, all at no cost. This is a very special day where children with ASD interact with typical peers and wow families with their capabilities. These events are examples of inclusion at the highest level." - Source: surfersforautism.org

This is amazing!!!

The smiles are going to be brighter than the stars in the sky.

The laughter is going to ring louder than the sounds at the Sydney Opera House.

The love is going to grow.

Friendships are going to be made.

And most of all, miracles are going to appear before our eyes.

Check these videos out, make sure you have some tissues first.
