But just for a quick post. If I start visiting Friend Pages I'll never get to sleep tonight. And sleep is a priority tonight. So a few quick thoughts:
1. April is Autism Awareness Months; I hereby pronounce you "Aware." If you know a parent of a child with autism, give them a hug. I guarantee you they need it.
2. School funding and property tax reform. We can put a man on the moon, and we can't fix this. Check this out. www.voteyesfordenville.com
This is what I have been working on for the past 6-7 weeks. If anyone has feedback, we'd love to hear it; especially from someone objective.
3. Related to #2. Wow, am I glad I found LJ before I ever visited other online forums or blogs! I need to get back here to reaffirm my faith in people. And don't be fooled by #2. I still hate politics.
Now for the good stuff. The Boy has moved on from being obsessed with presidents to being obsessed with presidential assassinations. Today we printed out pictures from Wikipedia of the assassinations of Lincoln and Garfield. OK, maybe that's not good.
We went to a theatre and saw Horton Hears a Who. It took 10 minutes (& several bribes) to get The Boy into the theatre (mega-plex type). We watched through the open doors of the room while sitting in the hall but we did it. Thanks go to The Girl. I was going to take her by herself for 1 on 1 time with mommy, but she wanted to go as a family.
Yes, this means Dr. Seuss is still a big hit at our house.
And so are bugs. We went hiking last Sunday and managed to find some insects and other "fauna." We saw Yellow Citronella Ants (we had to research on line to figure out what they were), a millipede and a slug. And we brought home (for a few hours only) a snail. I get major mommy points for all that.
Today in Science at school, the Munchkins learned about dung beetles. Guess what they eat?
The Boy is spending time with a typical class and doing pretty well. It's been an experience. Perhaps someday I'll share. Too tired tonight and it is a long story.
The Girl still loves Daisis and gymnastics. We'll also be trying soccer again this Spring.
Good night. Sleep tight.
