New Challenges

Less than 1 week until the Autism walk here in San Antonio! I am so excited for Zion to experience something so amazing. We have a great team that will be walking with us to support our sweet baby boy. Zion has touched so many people’s lives in so many ways and I am so […]

Picture Day and New Friends

Ok, so I don’t want to make this blog another emotional like the last one, but Zion told me something the other day that really made my heart sad. We were talking about how he’s doing in school and he was telling us about “center time”. For those of you that may not know, this […]

Fears and Worry

Zion has had a pretty amazing first 2 weeks at school! It took about a week to learn some of the kids names, but he has 2 names down solid and we are hoping that he will learn some more. I also had his ARD meeting. In case some of you don’t know, this is […]

Beach Vacation and Pre-K

We ended our summer officially with one last road trip to the beach. We took a trip to Galveston Island, about 4 hours from San Antonio. Zion did great on the drive there and back (much better then his baby sister I may add). We rented a house with my sister, brother-in-law, and nephews, and […]

The End of Summer

First off can I say that I can’t believe it is August! This summer has flown by and I am actually kind of sad. I love having the summer off to spend time with my little ones. I feel like they grow so fast, so any chance I get I love making memories with them. […]

Celebrations and Soccer

First off, HUGE thank you to everyone that took the time to wish Zion a very happy birthday! He had a pretty amazing 4th birthday. We went to eat at a jungle themed restaurant and he loved every minute of it. Then we had his birthday party at a burger place with an outdoor space […]

Dinosaurs and Meltdowns

As some of you may know, Zion loves dinosaurs. So the school I work at brought in an amazing exhibit called “Dinosaur George.” It was filled with dinosaur fossils, bones, and all around some really, really cool stuff. I was able to take Zion to it and he was so amazed by everything that he […]

School is Out For Summer

Well, Zion did it! He made it through his 1st year (well half year) of school and I couldn’t be more proud of him! The progress he has made in both speech and social skills is amazing, and he is at a completely different place then he was this time last year. I mean, he […]

The Day I Noticed The Signs

So recently Zion has been getting very overstimulated. He has been having more meltdowns and just more frustrated with things in general. I bought him a “fidget spinner” or whatever those things are called and it has actually seemed to help him. Although this stimulates his mind as well, it is actually in a more […]

Well move-in day to our new house has finally happened! Although we have done everything we possibly can to make this transition easier for Zion, he still has a lot of questions, and we are okay with that. We keep having to tell him that this is our forever home. We tell him at least […]
