    Ethan’s Learning Journey

    Last weekend Ethan’s nursery sent home his learning journey so we could take the time to look through it and see his progress and the things he gets up to whilst there. It was lovely seeing all the photos and all the craft activities they do with him as that is something I really struggle with getting him to take part in. I took some photos to share with you all…         I love the poems with his feet and hand prints and it’s fantastic to actually see the photos of him helping to create some of the items they have sent home for us. The photos above are…

    It Feel’s Like Autism Is Everywhere!

    I don’t know if it is now the fact that we are autism aware that our eyes have suddenly been opened to a whole new world but everyday we stumble across more and more autism reference’s in our everyday life. Every newspaper I pick up at the moment contains an article that has a reference to autism.  The gas man that came to service our boiler has two autistic children.  I can pass someone in the street now and notice if they are struggling with a sensory issue. I have gone from not knowing anyone with any links to autism to now feeling that everyone I know is affected by…

    Silly Sock Day 2013 – Making The Socks

    We have just over a week until Ethan’s wears his silly socks to raise money for Autism Anglia and help raise awareness of autism.  Ethan has done amazingly well and has so far been sponsored £215 to wear his silly socks for the day, we are overwhelmed by everyone’s support and generosity.  So this evening I have been creating Ethan’s Silly Socks so that we are all set for Monday the 25th of March. I had purchased these green socks with silly faces on them and decided to decorate them with pompom’s, blue ribbon and googly eyes.    Below are the completed socks ready to roll…

    Walt Disney World – Day 6 – Hollywood Studios – Pixar Pals

    We finished our breakfast at Hollywood & Vine just as the park opened, I was really impressed as I didn’t think we would be able to join the mad rush of people heading to Toy Story Mania.  For those of you that have never experienced this rush let me explain what happens. Toy Story Mania is a fairly new ride at Disney, I say fairly, it was there in 2008 and we didn’t even dare to go on it as the queueing time for this ride went into hours. This can still be the case now and as people know this they get to Hollywood Studios for rope drop and as soon…

    Cookie Day!

    So far this year we have been so consumed with Ethan’s appointments or illness that things I have planned to do with Ethan just haven’t happened but as we didn’t get to go to Ethan’s swimming lesson on Thursday because of his blood tests we had time in the afternoon to attempt to make the cookies it feels like I purchased months ago.  So to make things as simple as possible I decided that we would try a Betty Crocker cookie mix as you just have to add water. Easy or so I thought!   I got everything ready and Ethan actually come over to look at all the items…
