A surreal end and new beginning

It came faster then we wanted and under less then ideal conditions but the day is here. We knew our Aba company only handled up to 6th grade and that we would need to find another company in the fall. Due to Kendra changing jobs with different insurance we had to stop services early. The other catch is we now have no services until we go through the whole process with the new insurance company. I am a little emo but I know things will work out.

I blinked and you grew up

I have done my best to make important events and enjoy the moments with my two boys. It still feels like time has gone by soo fast this is Hezzy at his last 6th grade field trip. He has taught me a so much at just 11 yrs old. Don’t be so concerned with what other people think of you. Be happy in every moment regardless of what you thought life was gonna look like Water plants it makes the world a better place 🤣. I don’t know what this next season will bring other then a lot of change. … Continue reading I blinked and you grew up

We can all be Alita better

I like this movie for a lot of reasons but chief among them is the message of what we find important in life. There are people who will stop at nothing to get to the top and Alita is different she cares about people and won’t stand in the presence of evil without doing something. It’s easy to get sucked into materialism or just the idea of wanting more instead of thinking about how we impact others and how we can make a difference. Continue reading We can all be Alita better

Be a moment-er

Someone who creates moments for others. They are few and far between but when you find a person who invites you to do things hold on to them. My buddy Chris is a spontaneous person that is always inviting me to do stuff last minute. A lot of times I will confess I am not able too but it’s always awesome when I do. This was one of those days where we got to watch a autism friendly movie and spend some time at the park. This year we are trying to Make room for the opportunity to hang out … Continue reading Be a moment-er

The long walk

One of the first things we noticed with our son that indicated he was different was when he would separate himself from everyone else. I am not wired this way and always want to be around people so it has taken some getting use to. As he has gotten older I have started referring to this as the long walk and we work really hard at engaging with him so he doesn’t do it all the time. It has become a bit of a game of cat and mouse and we have fun with it but some times we need … Continue reading The long walk

Just Keep Going

It’s easy to get caught up in going through the motions as parents. Even if you are confident with who you are maybe you struggle with what your doing or where your going . I have had lots of conversations with different people from all different walks of life and scenarios and the question is the same. What am I doing with my life and what should I be doing? A lot of people put this into the box of their profession or charity work, expecting it to both define and fulfill them. Take some time to get away in … Continue reading Just Keep Going

The Adventure Man

I don’t know what age it starts but at some point as adults we lose our sense of adventure. I am not talking about wreck-less chance taking, stay away from those people. I am talking about something that gets you out of your comfort zone and lets you disconnect. A lot of my life as a special needs parent has been about denying all of the denying. How do you do this or that with a special needs child? How do you find time, space to do… I don’t know if it’s cultural or not but a lot of people … Continue reading The Adventure Man
