A few weeks ago James and Elizabeth discussed “futurist language” and the idea that every year new words are used and adopted by people that reflect the changing culture. Here are James’ thoughts:
Today was James’ last day of school and he received his first “real” report card! His A- grade in British Literature was just the icing on the cake of an amazing month and year. In May James participated in the McLean Homeschool Group annual pageant which is a night of student performances including musical, dramatic and literary readings. James and Shannon presented his essay on Pilgrim’s Progress and he also had a part in a very funny skit! (Both are pictured above). He is writing a blog post describing his pageant experience but it is not finished yet.
And last but not least James was a groomsmen again, this time for his brother Joe. It was amazing to see what a difference a year has made in his maturity and bearing. He has worked hard on his self control and it really shows. When I write I am always thinking about those readers who have children with autism. I want you to know that we never dreamed James would be living the life he is now and it just gets better and better.
