We went to the Unity Center (a non-denominational church) today and Griffin sat with me the whole time in the service instead of going to the childcare, Mrs. Cameron's class which he doesn't like to go to without me. Griffin did talk a bit now and then but in a whisper and he had to get a snack ( they have food available at all times in the lobby area) but he did sing the songs and sat still for the most part. We took Abby, Griffin's service dog, with us and she got to meet a tiny Chihuahua named "Happy" who was 7 months old, she was in the lobby area with her owner. Abby loves other animals and gets excited every time she sees another one, in fact, her best friend is our cat "Dot" who she plays with and cuddles with all the time.

Forgive me, but I don't remember. Is Abby your pet?

It's great that Griffin was able to sit at church and sing songs!

Cody sits quietly, but won't keep his head still. Sometimes he falls asleep like the really old people. Haha

@D: Abby is Griffin's service dog who when she is with him she helps him remain calm and grounded.

It's great that Griffin was able to sit with you the whole time! We haven't even attempted to sit through a whole church service with Kai. Hopefully one day!

BTW, I'm passing on the Stylish Blogger Award to you!

I'm so happy to read that you were able to attend church and that it was a great experience. We are ready to attend church and are slowly reaching out trying to find a church that will work for us. I'm glad Abby had fun too!
