Thank you for all the sweet comments about "E" and his art. What started as therapy for him; the sculpting to keep his hands busy, and the drawing for fine motor skills, has developed into his "thing". I hope he enjoys them for years to come.
"B", our second son, also on the autism spectrum, had his 13th birthday this past June.....oh, wait, that means, uh....March, April, May, wow! In about 2 and a half months he will be 14!
Where does the time go? You can read about "B" and his 13th birthday celebration HERE.
This is "B"s favorite shirt....it explains a lot!
"B" has more energy than one body can contain, or should contain! I sometimes wish I could bottle it all up and take some out when I need it for myself!
All of his energy comes in handy with his latest interest though~ Illusions. He helps and is an assistant to Jason, a young man at our church who performs as an illusionists for children's parties, conventions, and events. "B" has been sworn to secrecy on how all of the illusions work, and guards this information carefully.

Here "B" is performing with Jason at an event at our church. (Actually, no one is allowed to take photos during the performance, so I took photos after-the-fact.....hence, the "Posing"!)
For this illusion, "B" crawled into the round basket, and Jason stuck swords in the slots! I was a little nervous watching from my seat, but he came out all in one piece!
(When my mother sees this, she will email me about "B"s long hair, I just know it. So, let me explain, he just doesn't sit still long enough to get a haircut! So, he has been growing it out most of the year, I kinda like it. "B" also loves to play Guitar Hero, so the long hair helps with his "rock star" image!)
Hmmmm, maybe "B" will learn an illusion that will clean his room without me asking?
Have a great weekend!
