Yesterday, I got a last minute invite to my daughter’s sports banquet because she played softball again this year. She is an excellent catcher by the way… their team is undefeated. Before we left the event I got a new picture of us all together.
Her brother wasn’t supposed to be apart of the picture but kept inching in and then we agreed he could me in it, he had to interesting in paying attention to the camera. He prefers selfies and snap chat (blame his big sis for that last one).
But come September I will have a high school student on my hands.
This was me and 19 years of age…with my mini me…and yes I may look like a boy but I had to grow into this cute face you guys see now…lmao
The pic above this is us now… wow how time flies…she will be a high schooler soon… pray for me… she is already talking about cars.
These three cards… Not just any 3 cards. Let me tell you a little story about them. My coworker brought in some flashcards for my son, since we had the discussion about the PECS program. I tried to introduce them to my son and seemed to want no parts in this. So I took it upon myself to get out the cards I can match to his favorite toys. Which are anything with wheels. I started out with 4 cards, the fourth being his favorite a fire truck. I placed the respective toys with the picture and showed him which pictures they went with. I did this for about an hour, as I said the names he begin to flip the cards over. On the back it had how to pronounce each words also how to introduce them in a sentence. When he flipped them, I said what they were. At times he waited for me to say what it was before he flipped them and vice versa. We did this for almost 2 hours. After while, he was over it.
Well last night after dumping out his cards all over the floor he looked through then and found these 3. I suspected that he couldn’t find the fire truck so he handed me these. I smiled because in my heart, I felt that he did learn them from that one night and he was interested in playing that game again.
I know it seems like baby steps, but to me that meant he was paying attention and remember what I had taught him. This morning, I found him looking at these three for long periods of time. I think we will work on them again tonight. Now if I get him to try to say them.
