Ace Graduates Grade Eight

Image
I had the joy of watching my oldest graduate grade 8 the other night, which was a big accomplishment for him.  It was a long road for us to get him there through years of bad diagnosis' and schools that did not work for him.

We were lucky just before grade six to finally find a doctor who recognized his struggle for what it was and tested him to see if he was on the spectrum.  (he is)  At the same time he transfer to a smaller school where it really felt like the teachers and his peers cared more.

I watched my son change from an unhappy, miserable boy to a positive, humorous young man.  The change did not happen over night, it was a long road.  I usually keep my struggles with the children pretty private but you never know who might need to hear something.



This kid here holding the honor roll medal, 3 years ago we were at the point where the school he was in was refusing to grade him and I was crying every night because I did not know how to help him.  What a difference time, good…

Throwback Thursday: Family Cosplay

Image
When we went to Toronto ComiCon in March we pulled together this lovely Doctor Who family Cosplay which I did not get many pictures of.  I did get this great one taken with the Doctor Who Society Daleks though.

Wednesday Fitness Updates

Image
I have been pushing a goal of hitting my step goal every day for the past two weeks and doing a lot of hiking as Cat, Mike and I signed up to do the Super Power 5K in August and I am a little out of shape.

We have done a lot of trail walking in our area and bought some books to find new trails to explore in the GTA.  My personal favourite of the new trails being the one around Bond Lake in Richmond Hill which if you live in the area you should check out as it is a fun hike.

As the summer progresses I want to add other things into my routine such as starting Body Boss up again but right now I am concentrating on the walking and drinking my water as those are two habits I need to get down before progressing.

See you next week.

Things to do Before 2020

A few years ago I had great success with making a to do list in the months leading up to the end of the year and checking things off.  It kept me accountable to at least do some of the things that I needed to get done.

In the spirit of that I am making a list of all the things I need to get done and want to get done in the next little while and every month we will up date and see how far we are getting along.

1) Set up my Ko-fi page.

2) Make new pony ears.

3) Swap out the ribbon on my top hat for pink.

4) Paint my boxing gloves and figure out how to seal.

Howdy Strangers!

My neglected blog readers, I want to say that I have been doing fun and exciting stuff instead of blogging but truth be told I have just been working. 

I have lots of fun and exciting stuff going on this summer though and I am hoping to blog about lots of it.  A couple new cosplays in the works, some new shows we are watching, in training for a 5k (in costume!).

I look forward to blogging at least once a week over the next little while.

One of the Girls by Robin Daniels FROM ENDZONE TO FRIENDZONE… Senior Nick Moody is the second string quarterback on Roosevelt High School’s championship football team. He’s crushed on Mia for years, but she doesn’t know he exists. It’s time to come off the bench and into the game. Nick refuses to graduate without getting the girl or the glory. Mia Ashlock is the remarkably kind cheer captain. She’s a yes girl, and her penchant for people pleasing always leads to bad relationships. After being humiliated in a very public dumping, her teammates decide to break her bad habit with a ban on boyfriends. When Nick sees a poster, advertising cheer tryouts, he has a crazy idea: quit football and become a cheerleader. It’s perfect! He can get close to Mia and steal the spotlight, using his true and hidden talent—gymnastics. Nick and Mia have instant chemistry, but it does him little good. If Mia’s zero dating rule weren’t bad enough, the team treats him less like boyfriend material and more lik…
