Hoping Into Spring

Share this…Can you believe that it is already March? Spring has pretty much sprung here in South Texas, and Zion is ready for the outdoors.. well, kind of. Zion loves to play outside, but he hates grass and pretty much any other kind of texture the ground has to offer. He will go outside without […]

Feeling Out of Control

Share this…Zion has had an up and down couple of weeks. He recently told me there is another student in his classroom that has been picking on him. Honestly, he didn’t even tell me, he told his Nani (my mom) and she is the one that told me. I asked him about it and he […]

Frustration

Share this…So a couple of week’s ago I mentioned that Zion’s lack of understanding of emotion has started to become a problem. Well, this problem has really become even more of an issue and it has been very frustrating for not only myself, but for Jeremiah as well. It’s kind of funny because I work […]

Zion’s New Year

Well, the past couple of weeks have his cough has progressively gotten worse, like way worse. We tried humidifiers, […]

Autism and Social Cues

I actually love being able to stay home with my little ones during the breaks and getting to spend some quality time with them. Zion was super excited about eating Turkey. Lately, he has been wanting to try new foods, […]

Road Trips and Festivals

Share this…Zion has had a pretty amazing couple of weeks! We went to Austin, Houston, and did some trick-or-treating! He did great on both road trips and didn’t complain the entire time. So first, we had Zion’s fall fest at his school which was a hit. He saw a bunch of his school friends, played […]

A Walk To Remember

Share this…So we completed the 2.5 mile walk for the Autism Walk! Zion had such an amazing time and at the end, we let him cross the finish line before us and I just cried my little eyes out! Seeing my son so happy and supported by so many people is the most amazing feeling […]
