My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

It's about learning how to dance in the rain."

thoughts are the seeds, the harvest can either be flowers or weeds. — William

Summer is Coming!

(Just to let ya know, Sonshine got out of the splint after the MD appointment and all's well now! And life at work is downright weird, but that's a different post HA!)

Our plans for this summer are starting to come together!

We're going to do Vacation Bible School and 2 different week long day camps at our church.
In addition, I'm going to try and get some more things from last year's list done...and do some of the ones from last year AGAIN!!

Here's last year's list:

work on reading and handwriting with the kids
get Gator (and maybe Sugars too) out of pullups and into underwear/panties
begin teaching Sonshine (and maybe the other two too) to play the piano
go on family field trips every 2-3 weeks. ideas for places to go are: Sharkarosa, Ft Worth Zoo, Dallas Arboretum, Planetarium, The Heard Museum, Family Theater Series, the Dallas Aquarium, ride the Tarantula and see the cattle drive at the Ft Worth Stockyards.

Well for this year, it's just Sugars I need to get finished potty training. We're stuck on getting the poop in the potty. And we're definitely going back to The Heard Museum! We've been a few times and it's just wonderful. Plus the fountains to play in the water!

In addition to that we are definitely going to try and attend THIS:

I mean, how cool does THAT sound??!!!!

Since this is also offered in my area we may just have to take the kids to a movie or two this summer too!

My new part time job, wonderful as it is, is going to cause some scheduling difficulty this summer. So I may not get to do everything I want with the kids. But by golly I'm going to do as much as I can!

Are you looking forward to your summer? What are your plans?

Wow, looks like you're going to have one very nice fun-filled summer if you get to even half of the things on your list! It's great that you live in an area where there's not only a lot to do but there is a lot to do for kids with autism. Kudos to Texas!

I don't have any great plans to do much of anything at the moment other than survive having both teenagers in the house - that in itself may be quite the challenge!
