Oh, Maaaan!! Sorry, laptop just mysteriously deleted entire, so well spoken, comment.

Well, we'll just have to do with this one instead.

Wow! That's some Big Powerful Stuff, written of in a Big Powerful Way. Just love your writing, though I've not the ability to describe why right off. Thanks for sharing that with us. Really

Obviously our experiences with Aaron's own particular mind/personality are very different from yours with L. They are also very different from those either of us have experienced with any of our combined five other kids.

It is, like yours but different, quite an adventure and journey.

Onward through that Fog!

Thanks so much, John. Yes, onward through the fog--I love that metaphor--so apt for what we parents of children on the spectrum deal with...

Hooray for L!

I won't even get started on standardized testing here, but I'm so glad L. got to have this moment.

Even though I'm against all the standardized testing, I too am glad he got his moment...I just wish he could have more of them in the learning environment--every day, and not just at the end of the year.
