On Saturday, January 21st, families gathered at an indoor play place called Just Kid'n Around in Meridian. The kids had a blast loading up shopping carts, sliding down slides, and chasing each other around. The rock climbing wall became a big hit as well, as even the 4 year olds climbed up and jumped off the wall onto the mats below! As always, the event gave our kids time to play and interact with one another. It also provided parents the time we need to catch up, share challenges and offer advice. One topic discussed was the use of appropriate smoke detectors for children who are deaf or hard of hearing. In light of the very sad Christmas tragedy on the East coast, we recognize that having working smoke detectors in our homes is crucial. But when is the best time to introduce appropriate devices for our young children with hearing loss? We all agreed that there is no time like the present. Stay tuned for suggested equipment and alarms.
Thanks to all who came on Saturday. My son can't wait for the next Hands & Voices event. And we are counting down days until the Bogus Basin tubing hill event. Hope to see you all there!
