Happy Fathers Day

Belly Swin

It's been said that adversity does not build character, rather it reveals character.

All I can say is that our adventures in autism have made me a different person.  Hopefully for the better.

Happy Fathers Day!

Hello Summer!

The excitement of the childhood summer experience captured digitally.


 (Yes I know her "boo-boos" are showing, she'll have to deal with that later.  Like high school yearbook later.)

Happy Fathers Day

I think everybody in the greater Las Vegas area had the same idea of getting up early and having breakfast @ OPH.  I'm not the type that is going to wait 90 minutes for a table and especially not with all the kids.  We then tried Mimi's Cafe, two hour wait there.  Marie Calendars parking lot looked promising.  Not that it's even close to OPH, but frustration levels were rising amongst the females (read everyone except me).  In and out in less than 40 minutes, no stress, no spills, no drama.  Now that's how to make a father happy.

Things you don't want to hear 15 minutes before leaving for the airport

"Delaney's homework is to fill 50 water balloons."

Oh where do I begin.  First off my daughter is sent home with really cheap water balloons.  You know the type, the kind that they actually give you a cheap plastic nozzle with because there is no way they are going to fit over a normal hose/faucet.  Except they didn't send home the nozzle.

Then you have my wife who despite all her beauty and talent in almost all things mom and otherwise, she's just not that strong when it comes to working with tiny knots.

Finally, these are water balloons.  Do you think maybe there should have been some accounting for breakage?  Especially with 3rd graders?  Nope, the kid was sent home with exactly 50.

What's life without a challenge.  Luckily we have a sprayer nozzle that tapered just enough to get the balloons over without breaking.  50 filled balloons in 25 minutes and not a single broken ballon.

 

My wife is going to have to figure out how to get them to the classroom which weigh more than my daughter.

 Update:  My wife used a small rolling suitcase to get them to class.  Clever!
