Autism, You Say?

It’s April and that means it’s Autism Awareness month!! When we heard “he has Autism” we were scared. And sad. And angry. We thought his brother would be short changed. We thought he was being short changed.
But now we know….

Autism must mean

Funny.
Smart.
Caring.
Witty.
Compassionate.
Truth telling.
Good dancer.
Gamer.
Avid reader.
Beautiful eyes.
Brother.
Beloved.

Just a part. Not the whole.

So, we went to Orange Beach for a few days. It was sunny for 2 whole days!! I’ve had juuusst about all I can take of these dreary days.
It’s funny having a little one that loves running crazy outside and getting dirty. Jacob avoided all dirt and sand when he was younger….and anything else that “felt weird.” Julianna is all in, everyday! People ask if she’s always energetic. The answer is yes. Energetic, talkative, inquisitive…. all day, everyday!
Anyway, we flew a kite, dipped our toes in the {freezing!} water and relaxed. And ate a lot.
