“We must let go of the life we have planned in order to accept the one that is waiting on us.” Joseph Campbell Fourteen years ago this month, I found out I was pregnant. Brian and I were so happy, we had been married six years and were ready to become parents. I guessContinue reading “Letting Go”

Big Boy Wheels
I’m not really a sentimental guy, as of late. I guess the life of a special needs parent requires you to toughen up a bit, but there are still times where I start to get a little weepy, nay emotional. Cutting grass for the last time in the fall comes to mind. Hearing the crunchContinue reading “Big Boy Wheels”
A Pumpkin and a Perfect Smile
This past weekend Collier had his Boy Scout troop over to roast weenies and carve pumpkins. From the time Brian brought his pumpkin in on Monday, he drove us crazy about when he could carve it. He’s never really been a big pumpkin carving fan, but something tells me a recent Dude Perfect video thatContinue reading “A Pumpkin and a Perfect Smile”
Love One Another… No, really!
“ So whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.” Matthew 7:12 A few weeks ago, our Sunday school class had a Zoom meeting and this is the verse we talked about.

A Summer Camp Like No Other
It’s been a week since Collier and I returned from summer camp. In many ways, this was just like any other camp.

In a Covid-19 world, though, there were also plentyContinue reading “A Summer Camp Like No Other”

One of the biggest changes for many families became “pandemic schooling.” And while pandemic schooling is not the same as homeschooling, I’veContinue reading “Is Homeschooling for Us? Of Course it is!”
Support Each Other
I did something recently I very rarely do on Facebook. I unfriended someone. Now honestly, I’m not the type of person who normally does this. I can be friends with you if we have different religions, political views, or even ~~shudder~~ if you’re a vegetarian. 😊 But something about this comment just completely rubbed meContinue reading “Support Each Other”
Happy Pandemic Homeschooling Mother’s Day
It takes the heart of a mother to homeschool. Happy Mother’s Day!
As every autism parent knows, the beginning of April means that the annual “Autism Awareness Month” is upon us. Each April we bring out our blue light bulbs, puzzle piece door wreaths and wear our myriad of t-shirts, socks, hats and every other piece of autism awareness clothing we can find. But for our familyContinue reading “Our Auti-versary”
