I wanted to join a blogring on the topic of homeschooling children in the autism spectrum and discovered none! Today, I launched a new blogring, Aut-2B-Home, to link together the blogs of families homeschooling spectrum children. You do not have to be part of the Aut-2B-Home email list, but are welcome to join. A link to the blogring is in the sidebar to the right after the topical index. If you wish to join, click here! If you need help joining the blogring, leave a comment and I will be glad to help you out.
Yesterday was Halloween. My kids, Pamela (17) and David (14), are never too old to dress up and go trick-or-treating. Pamela dressed up as a cute, cuddly white cat, while David was a modern-day hippie, asking folks to sign a petition for "whirled peas" and "peas on earth." Many people got the joke and signed the petition. Others wanted nothing to do with it, and David casually replied, "That's cool, man." We saw many neat costumes and a live tarantula--yes, live!
It counted as P.E. because my "two cool cats" and I walked for an hour in a neighborhood with houses spread far apart. This neighborhood must be a favorite trick-or-treating haunt because cars and golf carts lined the streets. Walking was actually faster! It counted as art for David for he learned how to tie-dye a T-shirt yesterday (as did I).
