Noah really enjoyed his party, he only invited three children (all with special needs) and didn't mind whether they joined in the games or not. We adapted the words of Farmer's in the Den to "Wall-e wants an Eve" then "Eve wants a plant" and Noah thought this was amazingly clever and went on singing all night!
Beth, James and Anika had driven down from Auckland for a long weekend (Sam had to work so couldn't come) and Anika gave Noah the remote control Wall-e that she and Sam had bought during their holiday in the UK (It took up almost all their suitcase!). Noah loved it.
We are now trying to think of all the things we can get Noah to do by saying "Now you are ten you are old enough to...." Noah thinks it should be "go to school by yourself" but we are trying "get yourself dressed in the morning" and "eat fruit".
