Autism Awareness Month
April is autism awareness month. Every day is autism awareness day at our house. Our 13 year old has Asperger Syndrome, a high functioning autism. Today we had Girl Scouts (where we have 3 girl "Aspies"; I've dubbed them the 3 Aspieteers), then some of us went to eat ice cream. At one point I looked up to see one of the Aspie girls standing just outside the window & my Aspie girl inside. The one on the outside was pretending to climb the window & mine was inside mimicking her movements. Such fun. LOL!
That girl's mom sent me a link to some funny t-shirts. If you know someone with autism, you might enjoy seeing these, too.
That one just cracks me up!
One I would not wear, but have thought on occasion: And my all time favorite, but I want it to say "Autistic" instead of special needs: If you want to see a small scrapbook page I did with autism awareness you can visit my craft blog HERE.
I'm a Bible believing Christian who loves the Lord, and knows He loves me more than I can fathom. I'm the wife of the smartest technical person I know. I'm a homeschooling mom to two beautiful girls and a "retired" elementary school teacher. Sewing and crafting allow me to create items for others to enjoy. I have Celiac Disease, which means I can't eat wheat, rye or barley. That means a lot of cooking from scratch. My part-time Pampered Chef business works perfectly with those needs! Thank you for stopping by today!
