|Flat Susan with Myrene|
For the deaf they can't hear clapping so their sign is to wave
your hands in the air like twinkle twinkle little star and this
is their sign for clapping.
Flat Susan as you know went on a picnic BBQ day with Myrene and the Uni Students/Teachers/Aids etc and had a fantastic time with everyone. They were all mystified over her travels around the world and how far she has come.
Flat Susan got entertained and became well embraced in the community for deaf she even got to learn some Auslan, sign language for the deaf here in Australia. Flat Susan got to see some really fun times with not an egg and spoon race but a Malteser and spoon race.
Malteser's are little malt chocolate balls that are yummy, see picture for an idea, I am sure they are sold all over the world and not unique to Australia.
Well eggs are a bit fragile for some of the disabled so the Malteser's are a little more user friendly. Plus eggs can break and be quite an expensive exercise, so Malteser's it was.

Flat Susan then moved onto the sack race, that was interesting having her little legs bouncing around but she still was in the race with help.

I think a big day out with Myrene and a few lessons in Auslan. A picnic in the park with beautiful weather, sunshine and lots of people in fun colours to celebrate the deaf community, some were wearing butterflies and some had them painted on their faces, this is to honor the butterflies as they are also deaf.
