It’s the Little Things That Make a Difference

Hi, everyone! I hope that everyone that reads my blog had an extraordinary Easter holiday. I had a great pre-birthday celebration at the America’s Incredible Pizza restaurant on West Avenue. This is my favorite place to go to when my classmates and I go on outings. While playing all of my favorite arcade games, such as, “The Cyclone” (the object of the game is to stop a whirling light on certain number to win tickets) I really like this game because even with my disability, I can play it by myself. I won 1,218 tickets (plus 250 birthday tickets) with the help of my mom, auntie, and cousin. I used my tickets to get a giant rainbow-colored flexible daisy which is embroidered with the words, “You are my sunshine!”

On Friday, March 30th, the Arc Participants and staff members had a “Wacky Tacky Day” and dressed in crazy and silly outfits to celebrate April Fools’ Day. I wore my uncle’s old Hawaiian shirt (which I believe that my uncle bought in the 1980’s) and green pants with purple and light blue polka-dots and a purple and silver tiara. My classmate and I went around to the other classes and took photographs of everyone’s outfits that I will use in the April 2012 edition of the Arc’s newsletter.

Later on, I passed out “The Little Mermaid” and “The Princess and the Frog” cupcakes to my classmates and the staff members. (which are my two favorite Disney Princesses: Princess Ariel and Princess Tiana) that my mom and I brought from Wal-Mart.

On my birthday, I went to my first live San Antonio Spurs game and it was amazingly awesome! I went to the game with my uncle, which is another huge Spurs fan, like I am. A special person got me the tickets as a birthday gift and I got to see my favorite basketball player, Tony Parker, in person! The Spurs beat the Indiana Pacers 112 to 103 points. It was officially the greatest birthday that I ever had!
