A photo a day, every day, for a year! This is my post for the year 2021 Week 20. We are settling into our weekly routine and we are even starting to fit in Little E’s school book reading and home learning. Well sometimes! Ethan however is all over the place. When he was seven we went through a continuous throwing stage. It was the hardest stage with have been through in our autism journey. This past week Ethan has started jumping and having the same reaction as he did with the throwing. He thinks it is very funny. It isn’t and it drives us mad. We have no idea what has started it but turning eleven is bringing with it lots of changes. We really hope this stage passes soon, it lasted for a year last time and had a big impact on my mental health.
Project 365 – 2021 Week 20
Little E has grown out of her favourite Princess Ariel party dress. She really enjoys the Raya and the Last Dragon film. I spotted this Sisu dress on Shop Disney and knew she would love it.
It was eye test day for me and Little E. We both had our last tests over two years ago and Little E can’t really remember it. I’m so proud of her she told me she was very scared about the machines. She did so well. They want Little E to return next year as she has a slight prescription need but they want to see if it was brought on because of lockdown. Of course, I needed new glasses. I picked new frames in less than ten minutes as the shop was closing. I didn’t want to have to return as Ethan was making it quite stressful with his jumping. Darren only came into the opticians with Ethan when it was picking glasses time.
Monday routine and swimming day for Little E.
Darren is slowly organising our garden. This week he made room for a flower bed. It will be the first time we have plants in our garden. We have got to find the right ones as our garden can be quite damp at times.
Wednesday is my evening for after school activity running around. Every time we got in the car it was raining. There was even thunder at one point.
My friend brought Little E a treat on the way home from school. It was a chocolate egg with a face on it. Little E loved it!
Ethan’s school had to have an emergency closure day due to a mice issue. As Ethan is now eleven and technically has to wear face masks I thought the school run was a good practice. He didn’t like it at first, the last time he wore one was in August 2020. The school pick up was a better face mask experience for him.
That was our 2021 Week 20 adventure. You can read about our week 19 here.
