Make It Monday #21


Well, first day of school is over and done! I'm so proud of my boys they took it all their stride. For those of you that do not know, My eldest son has Aspergers Syndrome and the youngest has High Functioning Autism. So for them it was a huge achievement.  I am happy that they all have great teachers and that they have some familiar kids in their classes.

And the biggest bravery award goes to.................ME!! I didn't even cry. Of course it really helped that Hubby was there to hold my hand, lol. We came straight home and spent two hours digging a trench and then got cleaned up and when out for our "lunch date". It was so nice. Just the drive in the car was surreal, we have not been alone in so long, it was strange to be able to actually talk as we drove along instead of listening to the fighting and whinging going on in the back seat.

But I am sorry that I am running late with this Make It Monday post.
