The last few weeks have been just that. Overwhelming. I have been for sometime trying to muster up the words to explain our situation to you all, but have never been able to get around to finishing it. Our son is on the Autism spectrum. So when I speak of all that he has overcome and all the trials that we face it is due to that. granted more of what we are going through right now is just life, but it never helps having this hanging over our heads. He was diagnosed with PDD-NOS last November. He is now a fully functioning 3 and a half year old but he is still tough to understand, and has trouble emotionally, behaviorally, and socially. If you were to see him at a park you would think nothing of it, but if you were to spend a few hours with him you would recognize it. Now by all means I am in no way degrading what he has over come. that in itself is a miracle. At the age of 2 he was non verbal and had a blank stare that glazed over his face. completely emotionless, and very irratable.

So with that being said, you can see why I have been busy. this past week he started speech again, and my daughter started speech as well. my week is filled with driving to and fro from here to there dropping off kids and then picking them up again. on top of this we have Soccer, gymnastics, and AWANA. this is where my priority lies and I wouldn't change it for the world.

this week we also decided to go organic for the family and GFCF with Sawyer. that required TONS of label reading on my part and visits to many specialty stores. I am sure that once we get the feel for it, we will be old pros.

so please excuse my absence. I wish I could scrap if even for a moment, and when I do I will for sure post it here first. But until then, please enjoy my random thoughts and life plugs that I record here.



ps, I could use some prayers too!
