I had the pleasure of meeting another wonderful kid with Autism today! Shannon and I have been e-mailing each other recently and decided to meet face-to-face today. She has Andrew, who is 13. Andrew is simply adoreable, and he was wonderful with Michael and Nicholas. I asked Michael on the way home if he had fun and he said "YES". Shannon, thank you so much for stopping to meet with us--it was great talking with you and your mom! After spending lunch at McD's, Nicholas was simply exhausted; so he is passed out right now in his bed! It is so nice to be able to see how well Andrew is doing, and that just fuels us even more. I cannot WAIT to see Dana,Troy,Nathan, and Ericka at our WALK in Sept!! It is always wonderful to get together with them and catch up on events that have gone on--of course I read their blog every week,but its more fun in person!! They have become family to us.
This morning I got the Kinder Krunchies Too! cookbook that I ordered from Discovery toys (http://www.discoverytoys.com). It has TONS of kid friendly recipes. We have already tried one of them and it was a success! It was a milk shake (naturally!) and here it goes:
POUR 3/4 Cup Milk into a deep bowl
ADD 1 scoop of ice-cream
Pour into glasses.
Michael LOVED it, and said it tasted real good!
Thats all that is going on out our way! Have a good week!!
