Catch up & Thanks :)

I’ve had a busy week or two, as you might guess from the lack of posts. So thought a catch up post was in order.

First thing, I have to say thank you to all those who have sponsored my husband and daughters City2Surf run. We have passed our fundraising goal and still going, I am so touched by everyone’s generosity. Lucy is very excited about the run, look for me at Bondi on Sunday if you happen to be there, I’ll be wearing red and tethered to five children ;)

Things have been crazy busy around here, mostly with the kid stuff and organizing my school reunion. Mundane stuff, I wish was more interesting to writing about.

Our autie kids have had a good week, we have heard a lot of speech from Thomas this week which is awesome progress for him. Georgie showed us she could recognize letters and numbers, and she is reading so much more than we expected this early into her first school year. Henry has finally been recognized as officially PDD-NOS, for the purposes of getting assistance from services. We had to go through more assessments with him, as the previous diagnosis was not thorough enough. This was a pain in the arse to organize, but now I have all these extra bits of paper to wave at important people that are really helpful. See there’s always an upside ;)
I wrote about Autism here last week, and in my column at the Goulburn Post. I just thought I’d share the comments it received here, as some of them were reprinted in the paper. According to this story I am Goulburns Premier Tweeter, at last recognition ;) I believe a tshirt saying same is in order don’t you.
