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.
