I'm a homeschooling mom to a wonderful special boy. Tristan has spastic quadraplegia (CP), severe cortical vision impairment, seizure disorder, and he is non-verbal. I honestly think he's the one doing the teaching. I would not change anything!

all in a day’s work

It’s official we started back at therapies…after a year break…under protest but just the same we’re back.  Yesterday we had our first visit, Physical Therapy, as we’re in the waiting room my son’s cracking up a at door that opens shuts constantly (first thing in the morning so busy time).  He proceeds to then find…

New year to begin…

I know what your thinking…NEW SCHOOL YEAR?   How many days till school starts???  I have a friend that started counting the minute summer started.  I enjoy our homeschooling time together.  I love the beginning of a new year…the goals for the year, the dreams of what you want to work on, the reality of what…

My buddy and me~~

Ok, maybe it dates me that I can remember that tune that played out on television…”My buddy, my BUDdy, My buddy and me can climb up a tree, my buddy and me are the best friends we can be~~ My buddy and me” I wish I could turn the picture for you…but editing isn’t letting me.  Anyway,…

Old school still stings…

I don’t have to tell anyone, I don’t think, about how HOT it’s been this week.  As I said before I’m a facebooker too, and sometimes my saturday posts get away from me, sorry.  Some days blend into the next, but I digress. My father’s family has all kind of “drifted” apart (not saying that…

No, Not, won’t, can’t…The Negativity disease

I’m on facebook a lot…so much it’s an addiction, I think.  But there are people that I connect with on there that I wouldn’t necessarily be able to otherwise.  I have over 200 friends (and I actually know these people <surprisingly>).  But I find that there are people that post Negative thoughts a lot, I…

Two Peas in a pod…

Two peas in a pod may sound like twins but I swear if you looked at my husband and my son you’d see that they were cut from the same mold.  They look so much a like it’s just unreal!    I appreciate my husband and all that he does…even tonight when I wanted to come…

Anticipation of Orthopedic visit

It’s the night before surgery, and the house is a wreck. Tristan is sleeping but the bag is not packed. I’m on the internet, Steve’s watching t.v. We’re both in denial that it’ll soon be here. Early to rise, to arrive at 6:00, not looking forward this, I feel sick at the thought. I think…

Speechless…finally!

Hello all! Today, I took my son on a “Thomas the Train” ride with both of his grandmothers.  It was a little cooler today, last year it was SOO HOT, I prefered it this way.  Our local Children’s Hospital received some donated tickets for the kids, and one of our therapists thought of us (even…
