He's IN!!

Got some wonderful news yesterday!! Nicholas got into the Autism Demonstration Project! He is officially "Done" with the University of Washington as of the 31st of March, and we will now be able to begin therapy at home with him. The autism demo. project is going to evaluate him of course, in April, and they will see how much he will qualify for. But, this now gives us the leeway to hire people to come into our house and do things with him. Plus, it is going to up his hours every month. We also got him enrolled for respite care. Basically, it will be there to give us a break, and we now have someone qualified to watch him if we need it. That way, Mike can go to appointments without having to drag Nick around(i.e. the dentist and other not so friendly places) or he can take Michael to a movie or something. It gives him a little more freedom.

As for me, I have finally gotten off my butt again and registered for school. I am taking a psychology class, and a german class. Slowly inching my way towards my degree.
