The bulk of these will go into Facebook just because it is easier. But here, just gonna show a couple and write a little about them.
This first group is from Bennett's school, Step-By-Step Academy, and an Easter Egg Hunt they hosted last Saturday. The dude holding Bennett is my Brother-in-Law Brian. He lives in Akron with Jen's sister.
They have two, soon to be three kids, and I would gladly have my leg cut off if they would move down here. It would be good for EVERYBODY, and certainly give me a chance to get to know Brian better, which I'd like to do but you know me, I rarely leave the confines of the three-mile radius around my house. :)
Next up are the only two decent shots I got of Bennett during his first official hair cut, which happened last month. The other shot is of Carter as he waited for the screaming, uncomfortable experience to end. Bennett did not enjoy it at all. At all.
Cried and screamed the entire time. Maybe the sensory thing...but then again maybe not.
Carter sounds as if he is in a Saw movie when he gets his hair cut, and he doesn't have Bennett's diagnosis. So go figure.
Finally here are some shots of Bennett on Easter Sunday. Some shots of him playing, and/or getting sucked into the world of circular objects. As usual, fascinated by spinning the Frisbee around and around, not actually throwing it.
My understanding is that this is a very Autistic thing to do.
But who knows? Like the screaming haircut, I never know for sure what is and what is not 'normal' for a kid his age to get into and/or what might be a sign of his condition.
That part is the aspect of life that tends to get tough sometimes...over-thinking about that.
But over-thinking and I are old, loving companions.
It's my gift and my curse.
