Crazy Colors

I had this idea in my head.....

Needed Materials:
- Book Shelf
- Duck Tape
- Paint
- Paint Brush

After a bit of time and a lot of patience.....

Look I painted a shelf! 

It may not be perfect but is still way cool

When working with someone with autism you just have to know how to ask the question.

Case and Point:

Campers got a chance to get treats at the beach.
One student got a large, blue snow cone. So you can imagine how much ended up in her mouth and how much end up on her face….

Here is what happened when we got back to camp:

Counselor: ‘Student, did you have a snow cone?’
Student: ‘No!’
Counselor: 'Are you sure?’
Student: ‘It wasn't me!’
Me: ‘Student, what color was your snow cone?’

Student: ‘Blue.’ (said with a big smile)

Sergeant Pepper

I adopted a guinea pig! 
His name is Sergeant Pepper but you can call him Pepper.
I was told he is five years old. 
He is from a family in Wisconsin. 

He loves to eat hay and to explore.

Spiral Graph

Remember spiral graph??

We have a swing hanging from a tree in our back yard
It was too plain...

So my mom and I painted it yellow and spiral graphed it! 

Now it is even more fun!!

Beach Fun....?

It was a hot day so we took a family to the beach. 

It was beautiful and so fun. 

That is until I felt a 'rock' hit my foot
I saw blood in the water so went to clean it off
It didn't look bad but hurt a lot

Then realized I was stung by a stingray.
It was so painful!!

Now that I am back in America, I went to the doctor and taking antibiotics and even though it still hurts a bit. it is getting better. 

Lesson is: shuffle your feet a lot when in water with stingrays.
