Friday was PJ Day at Collin's school program. He wore his alligator jammies, complete with big green claw feet. The report I got at the end of the day made it sound like fun was had by all.
But it wasn't until I saw the pictures Heather had taken that I was really struck by the importance of the day.
There were pictures of Collin laying on the floor with the other kids during the flashlight show. Pictures of Collin getting pushed around the gym my multiple PJ-ed friends at during recess. Pictures of Collin trying the same bearclaw snack everybody else ate and just doing whatever everybody else was doing.
In short, the PJ Party showed me a picture of Collin fully accepted, fully integrated, and fully connected. It's a beautiful sight.
