Hanging at the Y

Zora didn’t have school today so she had to hang out with me while Zane had his gymnastics class.

He really loves being upside down, and there is an element of entertainment to watch him do so with long hair.  His head is actually a good 6 inches from the floor.

Zane is reminding me he is Autistic today. The lights in the bright sunny gym went off and it took a lot of effort for the teacher and I to get him back on task.  He was really upset by the change.

Trying the “dance” game.  She actually wasn’t too bad at it.

  • Autism is a continuum from genius to extremely handicapped. If you got rid of all the autism genetics, you’d get rid of scientists, musicians, mathematicians. Some guy with high-functioning Asperger’s developed the first stone spear; it wasn’t developed by the social ones yakking around the campfire. The problem is, you talk to parents with a low-functioning kid, who’ve got a teenager who still goes to the bathroom in his pants and who’s biting himself all the time. This guy destroys the house, and he’s not typing, no matter what keyboards you make available. His life is miserable. It would be nice if you could prevent the most severe forms of nonverbal autism.” — Temple Grandin, PhD, Autistic
