Autism Positivity Day 2012 Flash Blog #IWishIDidn’tHaveAspergers

Autism Positive 2012 Flash Blog

A couple weeks ago within the autism community someone came up with the idea of creating a flash blog. Just like the flash mobs you see around the world. If you are not familiar to what is a flash mob here is the Autism Awareness Day Flash Mob that happened this year on April 2nd.

What started this idea is someone was desperate and was trying to find information on “I wish I didn’t have Aspergers.” So the creators for the Autism Positivity Day  flash blog wanted all bloggers to blog about the positive side of autism on April 30th and tweet the hash tag #IWishIDidn’tHaveAspergers with a positive message. This way all the blogs and tweets will flood the search engines for this individual and others searching to know, not to loose hope there is help and support out there! (more…)

The April round-up: a busy month comes to an end

Well now, that was exciting!

April has been the month of many adventures for our family. (And yes, we’ve been so busy that we haven’t event stopped to post on our blog!) Easter, work meetings, trips to Bloomington, stomach bugs — they were all part of our busy month.

The festivities started with a very busy Easter time. Kelli and I were both involved with many musical aspects of the church. We were blessed to participate in Allisonville’s performance of “The Seven Last Words of Christ” by Théodore Dubois. I manned the first trombone while Kelli took principle clarinet. It was a great concert and pleasant way to blow the dust off my trombone chops. Easter Sunday morning was just as busy with a jazz early service and a large, musical filled Easter Worship.

Melanie throwing a fit

A not-so-happy girl expressing her frustration with having to wear dress shoes.

The girls did fairly well, although Melanie was not happy about having to wear a dress — especially shoes. She had such a meltdown that Kelli felt compelled to documented the experience with several wonderfully hilarious photos. My favorite is a shot of her throwing a fit on the couch. Kelli eventually relented and allowed her to wear her tennis shoes. A girl of style — pretty dress and tennis shoes. Michaela did well and was excited to be dressed up for church. Kelli later did our annual Easter photo shoot and you can see the results on our Flickr page or via the gallery we posted below.
