No School....

I am really getting grumpy about being off school. I had off school Thursday & Friday for teacher in-service & then of course no school on the weekend. I thought for sure I would be going back today & then mom tells me no school again!!! That makes me sad. :( I can't wait to go back again tomorrow! I was so bored today. I asked mom if we could go to Grandma & she said Grandma is at work. I asked if we could go to the park & mom said no again! Then I wanted a snack & mom said it's soon lunch time. I wanted a hot dog & fries for lunch but mom said, Sorry, we're out of hot dogs. :( My aunt Dawn & cousin Sierra stopped in for a bit this morning-that was fun!

Yesterday my family went biking & I spent the afternoon with my respite caregiver, Pam. We had fun hanging out-reading books, swinging & having a snack.

By the way, my dental surgery went GREAT!! Mom couldn't believe how calm I was when they were getting me registered & examining me. I even sat quietly while they listened to my heart & lungs with the stethescope (I used to be TERRIFIED of those things). They removed the 3 teeth & now my mouth feels better. Mom asked if my mouth feels better & I smiled really big.

Well, I'm gonna go take a nap cause that's what I do when I'm bored. :)

Dental Surgery

Please pray for me today as I'm going for dental surgery. They are going to remove 3 teeth. Pray that I would be calm & that all would go well.
Thank you!
I'll update when I get back.

Fun Weekend

I was happy to be able to spend the day with my friend, Karlita & her family on Saturday. Then on Sunday I just hung out at home all day cause we were all tired. The rest of my family went to the cabin on Saturday & we didn't get home until very late. So, we took naps Sunday afternoon & went to bed early. :)
I was happy to go back to school today. We got our class pictures taken & tomorrow we get individual pictures taken. Mom told me I need to smile pretty.
I have a new TSS & her name is Caitlin & she is very nice-I like when she rewards me with a game on her Iphone after I complete my work. :)

And another Good-bye....

to my wonderful psychologist, Dr. Brown. She has been with us from the beginning when I was first diagnosed with autism & she is THE best!!! I love her & will miss her greatly (and so will my mom).


I wish you the best and hope all goes well at your new job!

Sad Goodbye....

to my wonderful TSS & friend, Alysa. You will be missed!! I wish you the best as you go back to school. You'll make a great Speech Therapist!!









































Kristen (my BSC) joined us for the day too! SO exciting!












We had a fun last day together. We went to Strasburg Railroad & then went

to Red Robin for lunch. I LOVE Red Robin-can you guess why?

UNLIMITED FRIES!!! :) We had THE best waiter. He came to take our drink order & I told him "fries" & he brought me a basket of fries before we even ordered our food. I was THRILLED!




















Alysa & Me







Summer's End

Well camp is now history & this is the last week of summer vacation. I am ready to go back to school. I miss my teachers & friends. On Monday I had speech therapy in the morning & then we went to my cousins' house for the day. We had lots of fun playing outside & I enjoyed looking at books inside too. We had grilled hot dogs for lunch-YUM!! And the cranberry jello salad was good too!
My brother went back to school yesterday & I was kinda grumpy that I couldn't go too. :( My teacher is having an open house tomorrow & we're going. I can't wait!! My friend & aide, Karlita is going along too so she can see where I go to school. Then we're going out for lunch. Yippee!

Fun Times at the Bay





















I loved spinning in the breeze.









My cousins & siblings & me.































I had lots of fun with my siblings & cousins at the bay in Maryland the last week of July. We stayed for 3 days. I loved lounging in the water. Although, my forgetful mom left my swimsuit at home. :( So I had to wear my pj's in the water. It's good I had an extra one along.













































Larissa (5), Me (12), Preston (7) & Serenity(2 1/2)


Last week & this week I am at Camp Anchor again. This is my last week. :( I'm gonna miss everyone but I'm excited about school starting soon. :)

Woodcrest Camp

Last week I was at Woodcrest Camp & I had SO much fun! It was great to be at a Christian camp & learn more about Jesus & His word. And I loved all the songs we sang. And we went to the pool 1 day and there was also a 225 ft. water slide at the camp that we went on most days but I did not like that, it was scary! I only went down once. This was the first I've ever gone to this camp & I hope I can go again next year as it was lots of fun. This week I'm back at Camp Anchor.
We had a fun weekend. Saturday we hung out at home all day & then in the evening my siblings & I stayed at our friend's house while mom & dad went on a date. I had a lot of fun with my friends Andrea & Sara. I even read some books to their mom. :) I love to read!
We got home quite late Sat. night so I was very tired in church on Sunday morning, I slept for most of the morning-Mom was glad, she can listen better when I'm not antsy. :)
Last night we went to my Grandma & Grandpa Zimmerman's house for a mountain pie supper. There were chips to eat-one of my favs! They had watermelon & cherries for dessert & I was thrilled, I LOVE cherries. All my cousins were there too. We had fun swinging & riding down the big hill on a wagon.

Camp #3

I am going to a new camp for this week-Woodcrest! I've never been there before so it will be all new for me. Thankfully, my friend/aide, Karlita will be going with me. I'm looking forward to meeting new friends. I'm sure I'll be tired when I come home cause we're gonna be busy outside all day. I'll let you know what I thought of it when I get home.

Lazy Days

Sadly, I couldn't go to camp on Friday cause my aide, Karlita had pink eye. :( I spent most of the day lounging on the porch rocker looking at magazines. In the afternoon my friends, Brandon & Dustin came over, they were quite silly & I laughed a lot. Dustin likes to make up silly rhymes & I thought they were hilarious! I giggled until I almost fell over.
Today, I've been hanging out at home again. We are planning to have a hot dog roast for supper. Yummy! Can't wait. I'm hoping we roast marshmallows too. I love marshmallows & so does my RTS friend, Claudia. When she was at my house last year we snuck a bag of marshmallows from the pantry-it was so funny. :) Well, my siblings are swimming in our small pool so I'm gonna go watch them & probably get splashed too. Should feel good in this heat.

Handi*Camp


Once again, I had SO much fun at Handi*Camp! My favorite part was swimming in the pool. We also played baseball, had Bible study, played Bocce ball went on a picnic & much more. My counselor, Sam was great!!















Me & my fun counselor, Sam. She came all the way from Nebraska & volunteered her time-isn't that just GREAT!? We had so much fun together. I'm so happy the Lord brought her into my life.






















We did a program for our parents on Friday afternoon before we went home. I loved spinning while everyone sang.


After the program we enjoyed a treat of cookies, pretzels & lemonade. I was in the cooking class so I helped make the cookies for the snack. And mom said they were delicious. (I couldn't try them cause they weren't gfcf or egg free)




I was kinda sad about leaving all my friends behind when it was time to go home but hopefully I will see them again next year.




This week is my first week of day camp for the summer & I'm having fun!

Busy Summer Days

Wednesday morning my mom, Preston, Larissa, Serenity, me & my TSS, Alysa went to the annual farm days at Oregon Dairy Farm Market. They have lots of fun activities to do & animals to see but there were WAY too many people there for my liking so I had many meltdowns. :( I was happy about the free popcorn though & mom even left me have a wee bit of ice cream. :) I enjoyed the wagon ride over to the farm. The tractor pulled a big wagon that we could all sit on. They took us right through the middle of the dairy barn-the cows were a bit too close for my liking.

Welcome to my blog!

My mom just set up this blog for me so that I could share what I am up to & you will all know what is going on in my life. And I can also practice my typing skills occasionally. My mom is doing the typing for me today, though. Yesterday I had speech therapy in the morning & I did very well. Ms. P was glad that I was more cooperative than I was last week. Mom ran out of my one med & I just feel very irratible when I don't have it. :( I am sad that school is over but I'm also excited about going to camp again. We always have lots of fun at camp. Next week I go to Handi*Camp in New Jersey. It is awesome! Mom & Dad drop me off on Monday & will pick me up on Friday. We have a program for the parents on Friday afternoon. While I am at camp, Mom, Dad & my brother & sisters are going to the beach for the week. I'm glad I don't have to go along there cause I don't like the beach-the sand feels awful on my feet & the sun is TOO hot. I will have way more fun at camp-don't tell mom & dad though or they might want to stay at camp too. I am sad that the counselor I've had for the past 2 summers will not be there this year but I'm sure whoever I have will be great too.

Well I better go eat breakfast-I'm hoping I get my usual apple-I LOVE apples! I would eat several a day if my mom allowed me to. :)
