Chicka Chicka Boom Boom

Its the book of choice right now for Nathan. He learned a song on YouTube that sings the whole book. Its 9:37 at night and he's in the family room singing it to us. Its sweet to listen to him.
Tonight Chad and I had a great moment of clarity with Nathan where it felt like we could see into him and he could see outside of himself. It might not make sense but its the best way I can describe it.
The past month has been the hardest in our battle with autism. It has been one battle after another, whether its been with school, the computer, the Wii - really the reason has changed from moment to moment.
We pray and fast that this will be over soon. That we can get him back into school and that he will start to be nice again.

Alison is cooking up a storm!

She loves to cook lately. She will provide you with a great wooden lunch if you'd like it

First Day of School 2012

I'm sure I was more excited then they were, but we always take time for a photo op before heading off to school. Caitlyn was a little nervous because it was her first year at the new "Franklin at Brimhall" campus. Its much bigger with a lot more kids, but I never worry about her. She can definitely take care of herself and she isnt shy one bit.
Nathan was also starting at a new campus. He is going to "Pieceful Solutions" which is a school for Autism. They worked on getting their own campus this year and made it happen. We're grateful for the people that work with him there.
Alison started Preschool the week after the other two started and she was so excited. Especially since she gets to go with her friend, Maya. They all have a bag that they are supposed to take to school and her teacher asked that we decorate them so they are recognizable to them. Well, making a little Alison (glasses and all!) on the bag should be pretty recognizable!

Alison is so excited to start preschool. We were given a bag and asked to decorate it so it will be noticable to them. I dont know how much more recognizable this would be to Alison. :)
