Sun is shining and the pollen count is high! Still better than rain though.

Had a visit from an old classmate of my husband's and his family. Aside from having a wonderful time meeting these lovely people I had a major "best thing" occur.

Our second oldest boy (the one with high-functioning autism) went up to each of these people he'd never seen before, offered his hand to shake and said "Hi, I'm Charlie."

I was amazed! I know they've been working on it at school but I'd never seen him do it before, and certainly not with total strangers.

The boys did really well with having more kids in the house. I'm exhausted, but I'm smiling.
