Happy Friday

Its FRIDAY! I actually worked an entire 5 days straight! I haven’t done that since January. February had some holidays, Dad had his procedure and there were snow days. I almost forgot what 5 days in a row is like. Its darn tiring!

This week I met with Son’s teachers to discuss the feasibility of removing the aid when he starts 6th grade. The teachers have a lot of good things to say about Son, good improvements he has made to his behaviors. We also discussed some things that he will have to work on to achieve his goal. I have also told him that there is a good chance that he won’t have an aid but if he is not ready, he will have one. If an aid is what he needs to be able to function in school, he will have it. But we will also be working on the skills necessary to remove the aid.

Friday is the first LEGO group and while I am excited, Son is worrying about it. He is afraid to meet new kids. I know that once he gets in there with the LEGO’s he will be just fine.

Son is with me this weekend and if we don’t float away from all the rain predicted this weekend, we will spend Sunday in Rehoboth. Yes, the Polar Bear Plunge is this Sunday! They are predicting 58 on land and 40 in the water. Brrrrrrr! But that’s the fun of it.

Saturday, the Autism Center will be sponsoring an afternoon of bowling and since its supposed to rain, Son and I will probably join them. It will give Son a chance to meet with some of the kids from the LEGO group again.

I am disappointed that I have not been able to get out on my bike this week. Its been too hectic and not enough daylight. But we spring ahead on the clocks so I will have more daylight. Son and I will be able to go for a short ride after dinner!

I wish everyone a happy weekend! For those in the East Coast, try to stay dry and don’t float away!


  1. yeah its raining pretty hard now...but still looking forward to the weekend! happy friday!

    look forward to hearing how the lego group goes...just had one of my kids (work) diagnosed with autism...

  2. Good luck with the Lego group! I'm sure Son will have a blast :)

  3. We've had a lot of rain but it has melted the snow so I'm okay with it. It sounds like things are pretty even keeled right now. I hope the LEGO things goes great, it sounds like a lot of fun.

  4. Can someone please tell me why there were no LEGO groups when I was little? I'm sure I would have turned out differently.

  5. Happy weekend to you too, Amy - and I hope You CAN get out on that bike. ;)

  6. Hey Ames,sorry I havn't been loggin in to your blog, but we leave next Sat and between that and PopPop being so ill I just didn't jump on my computer. I enjoyed reading all your blogs from the bike, the interview (cute) and the dog gettin his voice... I hope Son has a terrific time at the Leggo Place. I am sure once he gets there he will have a blast. I hope to hear soon that he won't need an aid in 6th grade. Enjoy riding your bike after dinner next week and I will talk to you sometime in April after we get all settled into our house in Florida. (((Hugs))) Mom

  7. Polar Bear Plunge? Oh are a brave one!

  8. I wonder what it is about ASD kids and Lego - Nigel is a Lego fanatic! Hope you have a great weekend!

  9. Sounds like a busy weekend. I can't wait to hear about your Plunge, the Lego group and the meeting.
