Welcome to Friendship Friday! This is the place where everyone is welcome to share what’s on their mind…as long as it’s family friendly, that is! I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
We have a lot to thank the Lord for this week and always really! Bethany has been behaving beautifully for the most part. I don’t think we can expect total perfection, but she is behaving well enough to take shopping with us again!
She is becoming much more aware of and is very interested in what’s going on around her. In fact, she is very excited about Christmas and remembers that you get presents on Christmas. When we ask her what kind of present she wants, she answers that she wants big ones. She has no idea what she wants just they just have to be big! We were all ecstatic when for the first time in many, many years she felt well enough to help decorate the Christmas tree!
We are beyond thankful for the very generous gift of $600 from The Homeschool Foundation’s Special Needs Children’s Fund. We have been members of HSLDA since forever is seems like. I have read about the wonderful blessings these grants have been for other families many times in their publications, but never actually though of applying for it before. I’m so glad I finally decided to! We were able to purchase Bethany a new iPad 4. iPads are incredible educational tools for special needs visual learners! I also hope to teach her how to communicate with others on it. It’s so exciting!
