Have I mentioned that my kids RAWK!?!
First, Cameron is such a great kid. He has been happy although we are working on happy-ing the surly out of him, but only has surly in a ten-year old way.

Second, Charlie is doing GREAT in school. He does work, he wants to stay late. The class says goodbye to him when he leaves and if they don’t he asks them to. He is becoming part of something on his own. Part of a group. Step one! I am so happy for him! We talked about a play date with Carlos, who is in Charlie’s karate class and I worried, “Can I let him go on a playdate? Will he be okay?” and then thought, “I will have to try, and he’s better now that ever before.” He went to a social skills camp over the weekend. Although I haven’t received the report, I know they worked on recognizing social cues by reading faces because he brought home a coloring sheet. He had a great time. He’s a real boy!
