Snow Day in Virginia Beach" width="610px" height="296px" title="Virginia Beach Real Estate" alt="Virginia Beach Real Estate" />

  Our Snow Day on January 25, 2013 gave many of us a break from our every day routines. Every once in a while, we all need a change in scenery. This snow day gave some of us much more. It gave us a chance to grab magical moments...AND it gave us hope.  In Spectrum Parents, Glory Leigh Buyrn shared her magical moment... Overwhelmed with joy that my two sensory-sensitive kids were able to enjoy this winter weather (usually things like snow jackets, hats, gloves, and even pants, cause some major melt-downs around here!) #autismblessings Sometimes it takes years of therapy, sometimes it

Teachable Moments... This incredible, tear-jerking video came across my feed this morning.  Connor, my youngest son who has Autism, was snuggled up right beside me. About half way through it, he said, "It would be funny if Payton felt that way about me." My heart went into my throat.  After I recovered, I knew I had to use this as a teachable moment. So, I had Payton come over and we watched the first half again together. It took a bit, but Payton admitted that he would do anything for Connor. ...That he loves him...that they are best friends...that he gets him more than anyone else....tha

  The Dreaded Weekly Letter My youngest, who is on the Autism Spectrum, did not finish his weekly letter at school this week, so on I gave him a deadline. Monday.  He had to finish it before Monday. Not Monday afternoon. We tried a couple of times on Saturday to work on it.  Then, on Sunday afternoon, we tried again for a bit.  But after the tears started rolling,  I-gave-up- and told him to put it away and we will work on it "later." Fast forward to this morning... I rolled out of bed about 5am and low and behold, guess what I found on the breakfast bar???     Lesson Learne

First Landing State Park and Spanish Moss " width="610px" height="296px" title="Virginia Beach Real Estate" alt="Virginia Beach Real Estate" />

  Run, Do Not Walk to First Landing State Park... WHY?  Because we have Spanish Moss.   My kids adore First Landing State Park.  Not so much for the Spanish Moss.  That is for me. No, they love it most of all for the ROPE SWING. Almost there.... WOOOHOOO!!! This is quite a rope swing.  They placed it on a small cliff over looking the Chesapeake Bay.  I would recommend your kids be at least 8 years old and not scared of heights.  My oldest thinks it is the best thing ever!!  My youngest?  Not so much! ADHD/Autism Benefits My kids love this park.  Basically, they love any
