Autism recovered?

Medical experts say it's not possible to recover autism. We have living proof in the form of three children, that it IS possible. In my blog you will find recovery stories, along with information regarding health that I have learned over the years. And sometimes just snippets of life to give hope that yes, life can be normal after the hard work is done.

Sit back, enjoy, and be hopeful! RECOVERY HAPPENS!

Back to school

I wasn't quite sure if I wanted to start school today because my schedule was still not just right (AND I accidentally labeled Grace's file system starting with next weeks date). However, the kids woke up crazy early, brushed teeth & hair, made beds (and even made mine while I was in the shower!) and did chores without being asked...all while I was getting breakfast ready. They did all that because they were soooo excited that school was starting. How can you not love that??? So, we did school.

We started off with a smiley breakfast
Then we went outside for first day pictures. It took a few shots before everyone cooperated.
Take one:
Kate was NOT going to smile because she had flip flops on and the grass was touching her toes. VERY unacceptable to her!

Take two:

There's always one clown in a class and Tony is happy to fill that role.

And take three:

Ah... perfection!

Then we went in the house and looked at all our new books. Kate immediately dragged out Grace's Learning RX since that is what she will be doing this year (among other things). Grace & Tony went to their respective areas and started working although Grace is mostly teacher led still so she didn't do much. Tony however is quite independent in his school work so we didn't see him for awhile except for an occasional question.

Kate and I finished Learning RX and Grace and I started working on her things. It was rather chaotic but she has learned to block out the chaos so she did fine. Kate is supposed to be playing with special toys that only come out one day a week but that was just not her thing today; she wanted to be in our business. lol

Once we all got done with the big subjects, it was lunch time. Daddy was ready to take me shopping for my new school desk so we snatched him away from the base and took off to the store. Fun time there, I love my new desk which will be delivered later this week. We also bought Grace a chair for her desk. She has the most adorable desk ever (I'll take pictures later this week) but has always had trouble finding a chair that put her high enough to write on it. Today we found it - in PINK! What more could a girly-girl ask for??

After dropping Daddy back off at work, we came home and wrote up our first day papers. This is just a paper where they write their names, height/weight, favorite color, favorite movie, favorite food, etc. Then I put their individual first day school picture on it and file it away. The highlight of that whole paper is they get to write what they want to be when they grow up. Tony wants to be a published author (big time published, not self published like he did before), Grace wants to be a missionary and Kate wants to be Spidergirl. Cool, those are do-able. :)

We finished the night off with dinner and Daddy reading Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle to the kids. So although it did not go as planned, the day was perfect.
