It really worked! Ellen had a wonderful time. She stayed with the party even when it was just her siblings. She only asked to get her iPad at the very end of the evening. That's something that is usually with her all the time while at home. We were very proud of her!
I took so few pictures. Guess I was kinda busy! (I'm being very distracted by sirens right now. Lots of fire trucks going to a fire somewhere. God help those the firemen are responding to!)
Another friend and her parents came later...no pictures :(
(Coach T is Ellen's Challenger Baseball coach and friend Elizabeth's dad)
Ellen agreed that she really didn't need a lot of graduation gifts. Her friends and family did give her lots of her favorite candy, though....Reese's PB cups! She is all set for a long time :)
It was a delightful day! Congratulations, Ellen!
