Ha! Hot dog day. Did you tell him that you would probably have to agree about the smell of hot dog day?! I'm not even a vegetarian and I can imagine that the smell of hot dogs floating in luke warm cafeteria water is not a happy smell. You should put in a suggestion that they bake bread or cinnamon rolls on hot dog day!

I will never forget the day I walked one of my students (a favorite, if I'm being honest...and a friend on the spectrum) up to Chess Club. I was so nervous that he had decided to join. It was a big HIGH SCHOOL and he was just one little guy. When I got there, I realized that he was among friends. A lot of guys similar to him and just there to play chess. I cried all the way back to my classroom. So proud and happy. I feel a little bit that way for L right now. I hope that it goes well!

Oh, thank you so much Omaha--you made me teary. It is such a big milestone, and one so many take for granted with their kids. But for MY kid--this is huge beyond measure.
