There has been so much going on! Last weekend we had our Autism Walk! It was such a nice spring day for it. Our team looked super cute in our Autism shirts, socks and headbands. We totally rocked it. G&L did excellent at the walk. Much better then when we tried the March of Dimes walk a few weeks prior. At the Autism walk, there were no loud speakers, music blasting etc. It was perfect for them. The one thing I enjoy most about these walks is the sense of community. So many times we feel like outsiders because our family doesn't fit into the, "norm." My children flap, scream, screech, meltdown, run away, twitch, and most of the time live in their own world. When we go to events like this, we fit right in, we get no strange looks and rude comments. We can all be ourselves and it's, "normal." I'm not really sure what normal is considered anymore. The flapping, screaming, screeching, meltdowns, running away and twitching is our normal. I'm so grateful for the friends that come out to walk with us and to all the people that donated to our team. We came in 4th place for our personal goal, and were in the top 8 for our team. Not to shabby! There were a few team members that couldn't make it last minute due to sick kiddo's, but we know they were there in spirit.
