Podcasts for Kids

I'm such a fan of Podcasts and how productive I feel listening to one, not only for myself but also for Blake.  Every morning in the car I allow him to choose his favorite one for our 25 minute drive to school, and usually he will pick a different one for the afternoon drive back… Continue reading Podcasts for Kids

Wonderbly

Each night before bed we read books together with Blake. Usually it's any book he picks out and then a bible story. His go-to book recently has been this book I purchased from Wonderbly.

100 Days of School. Or Not

Tomorrow is the 100th day of school. The kids are encouraged to do something related to 100. Dress like they're 100, or we were supposed to decorate a t-shirt with 100 things on it. B and I didn't do anything. I didn't spend hours scouring Pinterest for any ideas. We didn't sit down together and… Continue reading 100 Days of School. Or Not

What Makes Blake Awesome

I remember taking Blake in for a sick appointment when he was around two years old. We didn't see our regular doctor that day, but saw one we had seen a few times before. In the appointment Blake was alert, playful, and laughing at all of the doctor's silly faces as he poked and prodded… Continue reading What Makes Blake Awesome

ASD: Awesome Spectrum Disorder

Today marks my 4 year WordPress Anniversary! I started this blog nearly 5 years ago on blogspot, then switched over to Wodpress. I thought an anniversary warranted a post. Naturally, I want to give an update on what's going on with our little guy because it's what's relevant in our lives. It's been a rollercoaster… Continue reading ASD: Awesome Spectrum Disorder
