Inside, outside, upside down.................

Good Morning lovelies.

Gotta share this RyLeighism with you.

GK, Ry and I are working towards the Halloween Party and since yesterday was early dismissal day from school, we had time to work on the preparations. My two hambones love to pretend and are, in their own right, excellent story tellers and tale tail weavers. So because we all like a good "yarn", we made up a back story to our party, complete with a story board and timeline.

I came up with the original concept and they added bits and pieces (actually chunks and whole sections). We all enjoyed an afternoon of story embroidery and I think we have a rather interesting adventure for all of you. What? Us present an ordinary Halloween story, and miss an opportunity to watch them blossom and grow, I think not.

That being said....I was talking about the pictures I was going to take today to add to the back story and told them I had second thoughts about some of the photo ops. GK asked, are you changing the back story and I said no, the back story will stay the same. And Ry said "hey, you girls better stop, cuz I like the right side story just like it is".

Ah yes, the six year old mind.

So keep your right side stories straight and we'll visit again, ya'll.

For those of you who do not know (and there are some new followers, yay for us), it has been suggested that Ry has Asperger's (high functioning Autism). He has grown by leaps and bounds in the last year and is doing grade level work in a short peiod of time this school year, now that he is not in a dangerous and stagnant classroom setting. His logic is impeccable, his building skills are scary genius, his social interaction.....well not so much but he always sees the world slightly differently than the average bear.....and cracks me up. He is the best medicine in the world for me. Laughter and all.
