The end of another school year

We have had a great year. Braden is learning to type and really taking to this form of communication.  He is caught back up on his math skills which isn’t his favorite subject.  He is social and doing better with friends. We have big changes on the horizon. Ones that we aren’t thrilled about but there are pros and cons to our next journey. We are in so much better shape than 4 years ago thanks to IA.  But we are going to have to take a break.  I have found a wealth of resources that were not available years ago. We also are looking into new options for communication that may or may not lead to positive change for B.  We have been unable to utilize therapy services while at IA so we are going to start speech therapy again in the fall. Our main focus is going to be communication, then reading, and math.  I am still working out how B will get social interaction but we have had a generous offer that should help with that area. We are planning on joining a gym. Both of us need exercise and B loves to swim so we can do both.  I will continue to look for opportunities that interest B. I think he learns best by using things he loves to teach.  He has made significant growth in his life skills here at home and we can expand on those skills. I put 6,000 miles on my van in one school year. 675 hours on the road. Worth it but sustaining it is another story.  Thats 3 and half to 4 hours that can be spent learning. Again there are pros and cons. But we will do our best to embrace the change and make the most of our next steps in Bs journey. 

Grayson continues to blow us away with his progress. He is so much more well adjusted. He still has struggles but he is doing amazing.  He doesn’t like performances, being in the gym (although he does alot better and doesn’t mind getting to school early anymore). He hates awards and the ceremonies that go with it.   Lets hope he gets over that one.  He got the Little scholar award. Absolutely well deserved.  Just wish he would embrace the fact that he earned it.  G is very creative and has done some really amazing art pieces this year. He is doing well in all subjects and we are really proud that he still loves school. He is so disappointed about summer its really unreal. 

The boys relationship is good. They have there own way of playing together and B probably learns more from G socially than from anything else.  G has said numerous times he wished B could talk. We are right there with you buddy. Lets hope they will be able to text each other one day. 


Happy Summer all!!! Oh and lets not forget someone turned 8 today.

Weather

So this crazy weather has been hard on the boys. Its just as hard as a schedule change because inevitably it messes with their daily routine. So B has been hit especially hard. He had a really bad couple of days this week. I think some in part to allergies and drainage but I also think he was having some kind of stomach issue.  Not sure exactly what caused it but he finally started feeling better Thursday evening.  Which was good because he was ready to get out of the house on Friday and so was I.  We did a little touring around and had lunch. Then both boys went to Buddy break. 

Buddy Break is always a nice break for Stephen and I. We get to have a nice sit down dinner and usually shop after. The boys always have so much fun and its so amazing how people volunteer to watch and entertain our kids.  I think its a very positive experience that educates others on disabilities and their families. Also allows people to give back and allows us the opportunity to leave our kids in a safe fun environment.  


We were so overdue for a beautiful weekend. Today was Spring Fling at Gs school and he nailed his Principle in the dunking booth. Which was exciting.  As well as just overall fun and he enjoyed finding his friends the most. B and I went to Target and he found a new school bus. His latest obsession and a few DVDs. We also got Chick fil A for lunch.  Then we all ended up home for 4 wheeler rides and will be grilling hamburgers for dinner.  Yum!  So ready for more beautiful weather.

They are growing up on us

Can I gather all my thoughts? Probably not but I’ll give it a shot. It seems my boys have really started developing a need for independence. Which on one hand is extremely encouraging but on the other hand can make me sad. Sad because when you take the time to go on your child’s field trip and find they don’t really want you there well thats going to make any Mom sad right?  So next year G gets to go on his field trips alone unless something changes. But at least I know he can handle it. He is so smart too. I really had no idea just how smart till I talked with his teacher on the field trip since someone needed his space. I told his teacher I don’t hang around many typical kids so I just thought its only 1st grade they all do good just starting out. Well apparently thats not the case. She looked at me almost like I was crazy. I mean he did get a few U papers on his comprehension test so I mean I had legit concerns in my mind. She almost laughed. So there you have it. He may give me other concerns but academics should not be one of them. So I guess I am gonna have to back off my worries and let this kid fly before he starts feeling smothered. 

B has a different kind of independence going on. He learned how to fix his own snack and does a great job.  Only issue is limiting the favorite snack. He wants two bags even if it overflows. He is also digging in his closets and dumping everything which he has done in the past but especially lately and more often. I don’t mind since his room is super organized and I can just use a dust pan like a shovel for all his cars and trains to put back in all his drawers. He helps and really I should reduce how many he has by putting some in storage. But I feel like this about things, stimming and other not so desirable habits. If you take things away it can lead to other even less desirable habits so you have to choose your battles wisely. I think if you have things organized well and it takes less than 5 mins to clean up its wise to just leave things as they are and make them help as often as possible. He has also decided he has an opinion on clothing choices and food choices. Which he has never shown much interest in choosing shirts or what he wants to eat unless its his favorite snack. So thats nice but kinda ruins the concept of picking out their clothes for the week and putting in drawers under the bed. That almost lasted an entire school year. I may just put two options in each and see how that works. 


Ill try and post pics. G had a really nice piece of art from school last week.

Autism awareness day and month

I guess there is a little bit of controversy on wearing blue for awareness or red for acceptance but we have both at our house. We have many friends and othe resources of support and we are so thankful and blessed.  I can't get to the pictures that I wanted. But this one of B is progress. We have been working on his smiling for pictures. He is trying but you have to be quick. One of the youtube channels we follow is Fathering Autism. Please check out their latest video. Our boys pic is in with many other faces and a great message. https://youtu.be/TlIIvGMIhwc

Friday is life skills day

So this week I decided to share a video of B and I going shopping. He loves to shop and usually does very well.  Grayson is doing great learning to cope and regulate himself. We will have to do video of him one day as well. I am a novice at video but I plan to learn how to make the good vlogs and share those through this site linking with our youtube channel.

Enjoy!!! Also next time I will hold the camera the right way. Lol

Home schooling

The subject of home schooling comes up alot in the special needs community.  Largely in part to the lack of cooperation and understanding in many schools. Especially when it comes to moderate to lower ability students who have autism. Private school is expensive and not all areas have a school specifically for non-verbal kids or children with minimal communication skills.  

I am not opposed to Home schooling in general. However, I have no desire to home school my kids. For one thing both of our boys are social and want to have friends and be with people.  I know they both struggle daily with social interaction.  I know my child who is in public school has been picked on.  I know my oldest can be the mean one.  Despite that they both like and need to be in school.  I have learned alot about child development through early intervention and early start in the school system.  I know my 1st grader is learning things I didn’t have to learn till I was several years older.  The demands today are much higher than when I was growing up.  Which applies a great deal of pressure on our kids.  I think in the case of G its good. He needs the challenge and thrives on it.  At least for now school provides for him more than I can and honestly I need the village.  I like just being Mom and that job is by no means easy.  

B and school is complicated. He needs alot more than I could ever give him.  We need his special school just as much as he does.  They have made home life so much easier.  We have been able to teach him at home because we have his school.  Everything we do at home carries over to school and school to home. Its a well oiled machine that keeps B moving forward and we will keep him there as long as we are able.  We appreciate just how lucky we are to be able to send him to IA.  

Lastly, I give a lot of myself to my kids. I spend most of my day taking care of my family.  So I need my hour or two break on those four days a week that they are both in school. So if you can afford to keep your village and spend just a little time taking care of you then by all means do it.

Flu season

So the dreaded flu hit G like a ton of bricks last Wed night.  Vomiting, fever and body aches.  We immediately went to the Pediatrician.  So thankful for Zofran. They gave him a pill first but he was so sick he vomited as soon as he ate it.  So they gave him a shot. Which totally stunk especially since I told him he wouldn’t need one. We have never had zofran before so I didn’t know.   Anyway we all four got on Tamiflu immediately. Poor G relapses as usual but now he is fine and finally both boys are back in school today. The bad thing is that there is still alot of crud going around. Including another strain of flu. There is supposedly three different ones and some people are getting sick more than once. So scary for us.  As much as we are trying to be careful but also live life it’s still difficult. This would definitely be a case for saying we should homeschool but ultimately that isn’t whats best for our family.  I believe it really does take a village to raise kids but especially so with special needs kids. As of right now both of our boys get bored when they are home too much.  They love people and getting out and doing stuff. 

Today I am hopeful to get a few things done. Take advantage of being out of the house and catching up on things I might have on hold. 

Lets talk about kids youtube.  I told you all I would explain why B no longer has this app on his ipad.  First of all he started to retreat into what we call the blackhole that is youtube.  It is so easy to just drown in all of the information and different types of things to watch. Its instant overstimulation that certain videos can cause that lead to behaviors. He had become completely absorbed and no longer came out of his room unless he wanted something. So we compromised with Netflix and Amazon Prime as well as some kids channels like Nick Jr.  ultimately his first choice is Netflix. Sometimes he still finds videos that overstimulate but not very often.  He is really social again and wants to play and go outside. So we reeled him back in by taking it off.  Plus giving him an alternative keeps him from being mad at his brother because G still has it on his ipad.  G can handle it. He doesn’t spend all his time playing games or watching youtube. He is very balanced when it comes to those things. 

Now it is Wednesday and I just finished pedis and lunch with a friend.  I haven’t been out of the house for anything fun in over a month. Except I did get my hair done which always makes me feel great. A few weeks ago in my exhaustion I opted to wake up 15 mins late. I never hit snooze. Also needed a shower but instead threw on sweats. Now most of you are going to think “So what I do that all the time”. Well my friends I don’t and here is why. That day of no shower and sweats I was a hot mess all day. I was just off my game completely.  I thought to myself this is what my kids feel like when something is out of there routine. So funny!!! But a few years ago I decided that my goal was to always have it together first thing in the morning. Meaning shower, makeup and a cute outfit. May seem like a shallow goal to some but its kind of like making my bed in the morning.  It just makes me feel good. Happy and focused because I don’t feel like I look so tired as well as I feel like actually doing things. I realized my entire attitude was different just by doing those 3 things.  You wouldn’t think such a small thing would do so much but if I want to be on my game then not hitting the snooze is a must. 

Thank you all for sharing our life.

About Me

My photo

I am a stay at home Mommy to two beautiful boys ages 10 and 7.   I am also Mommy to one little girl who blessed us with 13 days of life.  Our road may be crazy and full of surprises but in this household Autism exist but doesn't define who my children are or will become.  I am also a blogger.  I love to write about our families crazy journey through life.  We love, laugh and suffer sometimes but we stick together and always seem to keep growing and going.
