What Really Matters,...

 End game for autism charities,...mean a little guy playing miniature golf at the zoo at NIGHT!!!

Can't hear the giggles,...but Isaac LOVED the BOO-at-the-ZOO,...presented by KultureCity a local charity for autism awareness.



It was a great night,...thanks to all who give so generously of their time and money,
our little guy had a BLAST!!!!


Of course,...Isaac has a blast just about 365 days a year,
he is one happy little guy,...


Fall Festival time and Isaac was a quasi-superman/ClarkKent,
those glasses were only worn during this photo shoot,
then Isaac declared the glasses were 'all done' 
(Note: our dog Oreo wanting in on the fun!)



Did Isaac know he was dressed as superman?
No.
Did Isaac care that he was dressed as superman?
No.
Did we care that Isaac didn't care that he was dressed in costume?
No.
All that matters is that Isaac had a super-good time,...and he did!


In his own way,...of course,...let's get real,
Isaac is Isaac
he experiences the world is a different way,
and makes sure you do too!



In case you have ever wondered,...quasi-supermans like french fries and chicken fingers. 


Super heroes have super powers which set them apart.
Autism and apraxia set Isaac's development apart,
and those diagnoses make us examine the world in a different manner.
Like fall festivals and trips to the zoo.
Same, but different.
And we're getting use to approaching celebrations
from a different perspective,
or rather from Isaac's perspective.
How much does he understand?
We don't know because he can't communicate to that degree, yet.
But Isaac communicates his joy,
and excitement,
and curiosity.
He LOVED the fall festival,
He LOVED the Boo-at-the-Zoo,
He LOVED noshing on chicken fingers and french fries!
And that's all that really matters.

Until I post again,...may God bless and keep you!
