More Fun Meetups for Special Needs Families and Friends – August Calendar

You can clearly credit my enthusiasm for Day Of The Post this morning (yesterday morning now) and my motivation to catch up on things to the fact that I had not yet stepped foot outside. By the time I returned from my hot, sticky trip to gymnastics, Blockbuster, picking up prescriptions and grocery shopping my inspiration had melted away along with my patience (and mascara).

I promptly fell asleep tucking the children in and woke around midnight feeling refreshed, now that the temperature has come down a little from the zillion degree heat index of the day (actually 115, but they don’t do a heat index for wearing babies outside).

So in one last dedication to Day Of The Post I present to you the August meetup calendar, only scheduled through the 24th because we will be on vacation that last week. Hope to see you at a few of these fun get togethers!

August 4 – Highbridge Pool, 11:00-1:00pm, trying to get as much water time in as possible as the summer flies by (you are welcome to join us any Thursday for free swim here through August 18)!

August 6 – BounceU Open Bounce Will post time as soon as they set the schedule, probably at 10 or noon though.

August 12 – Central Park Brass at Robert Bendheim Playground, a “playground for all children.” Interactive concert starts at 11:00am, we’ll stay for a picnic, playground and sprinklers afterward.

August 14 – Bronx Zoo, 11:00-4:00pm

August 16 – Thomas Jefferson Park, 10:30am We’ll already be over there for adaptive track if anyone is interested in participating, but also plan to hang out at the shaded playground, and maybe the pool weather/crowd permitting (we are here every Tuesday through August 16).

August 20 – NYC Police Museum, 12:30pm http://www.nycpm.org

September 5 – Goodbye Summer, Hello School Year Picnic! Details TBD.

July 23rd Meetup Canceled Due to Excessive Heat!

After the meetup yesterday it is an easy decision to cancel the park meetup tomorrow, since Saturday will be as melty, if not more. I plan to hibernate indoors, and if we decide to make indoors more exciting than our apartment I will let you know of the new location.

It has been fun meeting new people and getting to know acquaintances better this summer! I didn’t schedule any more social gatherings for the remainder of July because we’ll be in Hoboken all week for bike camp (if you are going to the orientation on Sunday and want to head there together let me know!) and then James is going to visit some relatives for the weekend, but keep an eye out for the August calendar.

And, check back very soon for details on an extra special opportunity/ event this Monday, July 25th! Very soon meaning today, in honor of Day Of The Post.
