I hope everyone had a lovely Easter. I went to church and then came home and cooked for the family. Dan and Tammy couldn't make it from Minnesota, but the rest of the gang was here. It was great.
. . . . .
I am going to discuss something that is near and dear to my heart. Mowing. Yup, I grew up as a child "professional mower". Our yard was so massive, that I spent many an hour on a John Deere lawnmower, keeping things looking nice. It must run in the family, because both Jenna and Dan are the same way . . . mow, mow, mow. Hubby, on the other hand, would just as well cover our yard with rock or artificial turf. Every summer, he says I spend more time with my "boyfriend" (the Toro) than with him. LOL
Well, sad to say, the Toro is on his last legs. He is seventeen years old, and it has gotten to the point where Hubby has to spend a lot of maintenance time on the poor, old guy. Gulp! It's time, wouldn't you say?
Soooooo . . .
Hey, I have something really important to report. This past Saturday, Samantha Myers and her photographer, Mike, from Channel 9 - KCRG TV station did an interview with Jenna, where she got to explain what we are planning on doing with our Woodbridge Haven project. She did a great job, and it was sweet that they photographed Alec sitting next to her. (I DIDN'T want to be on camera). We have gotten a lot of response from that shoot. Things are beginning to get exciting.
Also, this is Autism Awareness Month. A young man on Facebook asked for people to take pictures of their bare feet and post them on his site, to emphasize the sensitivity of some autistic people's skin. Alec's sensory problem is wearing a shirt, and most of the time, wearing shoes. These are some of the major issues that a lot of people don't realize these folks have. When Alec was a baby, we could not get him to put his feet on grass or sand. He outgrew some of that as he got older.
Anyhoo, Cate, Abby, Alec, Jenna, and me stood in a circle in the yard and took a photo of our bare tootsies for his Facebook page. He is delighted by the attention he has gotten for his "Autism Sensitivity Challenge".
GOD BLESS YOU ALL
