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!

Homeschool in the back yard

 We have a large pond behind our house.  It is not unusual to see cranes, geese and even an occasional turtle out there.  Two days ago the kids were exploring around the area and shouted that we had to come see THIS!  Can you tell what it is? 

 I couldn't tell.  Now don't get all huffy with me, I did not grow up playing with things like this.  Mom, don't worry; you're still my favorite.  :D 

 Aren't tadpoles just adorable??  The water was actually frothing up there were so many.  I think in a few weeks, we're going to have a plague of frogs.  Those cranes need to get to work thinning the herd.  (Can you call it a herd?  Kate called it a heap so I guess herd is ok right?)

While out there, we noticed a little fishy caught in some net (why is there a net in there??) so Daddy-o got some scissors and cut the little dude free.  He's just awesome like that.  He then set 4 more free... and yes, I did call the pond people and report the netting situation. 

 I think it's pretty great that we get to stop life and have school when the opportunity presents itself. 

Garden update

We've gotten radishes and spinach so far that were great.  I'm not sure if the cabbage will get big enough to enjoy before it's too hot but I'm crossing fingers!  I'm just pleased that we've gotten real edible veggies out of this year.  :)

Metal mouth... stage one!

I don't wanna be the D.O.!!

That's what Grace yelled in the middle of a tickle fight last night.  She's been working hard on labeling parts of a sentence and apparently it's spilled over into play time.  She didn't want to be the Direct Object of the tickle fight.  Bahahahahaha

Happy Wednesday everyone!

Treasures from the garden

This is our first time planting for the spring.  I have no mentor so I am just trying to learn as I go.  Last fall we didn't get anything useful from the garden so I did study up and plan a little better this year.  Yesterday I noticed the spinach looked ready to pick and b/c it's getting warmer I was afraid if I left it out too much longer it would go bad.  So first thing this morning I sent Tony and Grace out to cut me some leaves!  They were so excited about it.  :)  Kate was NOT excited about it and said I was ruining her smoothie. 

 Aren't they beautiful??

 Kate decided they were so pretty she needed to try a piece.  I gave her a leaf and she gobbled it down and asked for more.  That started everyone asking for leaves so only about 3/4 of what they picked ended up in the smoothie.  They also requested I put aside a few pieces in the fridge for Daddy to try when he gets home.

Home grown spinach just tastes yummier!!

 The kids all agreed it was the BEST smoothie ever.

Note:  The stuff under the spinach is dragon juice, avocado, hemp powder, xylitol, cinnamon & goji berries.  It was a seriously power packed smoothie.  :)
