Thursday Thankfulness

Asperger's, autism, awards, birthday, eczema, music, school, spring, thankfulness
Sorry about being MIA so much. There's been a lot to do with birthday preparations and nice weather and spring cleaning. Fortunately, there have been some things to be thankful for this week, like:

  1. 1. I am thankful that Gus earned an academic achievement award from school for the third quarter! And he did pretty well at the assembly when he went up to receive it. And his music teacher gave him a respect award as well.
  2. I am thankful that Gus is learning to read music at school. I remember music class as a kid and it never involved learning a single notation. We just sang. Now, Gus is learning to play the recorder and he's telling me notes by sight already. It's a skill that every kid really should have access to and I'm glad he's enjoying it.
  3. I am thankful for the little taste of summer we got last week! Not many people enjoy such hot weather, but for me it was indescribably great to not have to wear layers or socks or anything heavy. And now I'm equally glad for the milder temps were getting again, mostly for Gus's sake because of those eczema flareups (which magically went away when it dropped to 60 degrees).
So, what are you thankful for today? Sorry to be so brief, but Gus's bedroom is going to be the next spring cleaning, recipient. Hey! I'm thankful that Gus is the one member of this family who doesn't get upset over getting rid of things!

Have a great day!


  1. I am thankful that my parents, like you, let me take up an instrument (trumpet) and learn to read music way back in the day. My love for music remains with me today.


  2. Hi Mike! Your love of music is very apparent from your great videos! Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Great list. I'm so enjoying following this and Gus...always makes my day :)
