The summer break is a little over half over… can you believe it??? It is flying by, but has also been full of some long rough days for our little clan. Sam has had a hard time being out of his school routine and has lashed out quite a bit… many of his more challenging autistic behaviors coming into play. And poor Rob tore his ACL muscle, and has been in extreme pain and mostly needing to stay off of his knee for weeks now. He’s starting to get a bit more mobile, and we are determined to make the rest of the summer MAGICAL and FUN! He surprised us yesterday morning by suggesting to take a day trip out to the Coast! We headed out to one of our favorite spots – Hug Point – and enjoyed the afternoon playing in the sand, kicking the soccer ball around, and running from the waves. The beach. The Ocean. The sound of the waves. The fresh air. The being in nature. It is all such good medicine for the soul. Its amazing what a little perspective refresher can do.
