I Heart Fall
Oh what a glorious morning.
Started as usual, cats jumping on my body for a morning wake up call to feed them. I stumble out of bed and downstairs to give them treats and let them outside. I opened the door and what greeted me was amazing.
Yes Fall greeted me with a cold chill in the air.
Today is cleaning day and we usually don't leave the house on Sundays. But today I might make an exception. Not that it will stay 67* all day but boy it sure is lovely.
Yesterday we spent the whole day go, go, going.
We started with some school work and learning about fall by making some squirrels gathering their nuts for winter.
Then it was on to a great event put on by Barnes and Noble. It was Curious George day and storytime. The boy had so much fun and I have to say I was so proud to see him sit patiently and wait, then raise his hand and want to participate in the games and color time.
What a difference a year makes!
So pleased with him, I treated him to his most favorite lunch at In - N - Out
then it was on to the park. All of our normal parks were full of birthday parties and family reunions which worked out great cause I stumbled upon a whole new park that will now be our favorite. By this time of the day it became so blustery that I felt motion sick. You can see here how the boy is holding on for dear life and his hair is blowing back so you can actually see his face. It seriously was hard to even walk. So home we came for nap time. Yes, he is under there, knocked out from a full day, lol.
It was such a full day of fun and proud moments.
A year ago I would have never thought it possible to enjoy a full day of events without struggles and tantrums. A year of determination not to let my boy slip into the world of Autism any further has really paid off. With his change in diet and great help from Sport Social Therapy and his new school our boy is winning his fight. I couldn't be more excited to see what another year brings.
