Small Wonders

Well I started work this week. I am now an employee of Small Wonders in Turner, Maine. I believe we have around 18 to 20 kids signed up for the summer though not all will attend every day. This group that i work with is the day camp and we work with children from grades 2 to 6. We took our first field trip to Snow Falls. Its really just a glorified rest area but the children really enjoyed it! We walked along the trail to the end where there was a small pool of water that the kids could play in. They had a blast and got soaked!!! It was kinda funny to see some of them fall in! For the most part they are really good kids. We do have a little trouble with one boy named Triston. He is 9 yrs old and i have been told he has autism. Most of the kids get annoyed with him, but i think he does most of it for the attention they give him even if they are mad. For the most part he just seems like any 9 yr old boy would be. He was the last to leave today and so i spent about 30 min. just me and him and we had a pretty good time. His mom is thinking of moving him to another day care, but i am actually praying she doesn't. I would like to get to know him a bit better i think. I am praying that God will give me a better understanding of him. The Lord has truly blessed me with this job!
