The title says it all...saying good-bye to the summer blues. This summer is a different one for us, I'm not sure if it's because my children are older, more mature this summer, if it's just a different season, I'm not sure - it just feels different.
Ever since Big Brother C started school at the age of 3, I've worried, stressed, even cried over summer, the idea of summer break. Why you ask? One word - Regression.
As a parent of a special needs child, most summer's involve a little or a lot of regression, Big Brother C has done summer school once or twice maybe in our previous school district but we weren't happy with the results & the summer school schedule just didn't work for us.
My son spends a lot of time at school, when he's not in school, he is doing therapy at home, he has a jam-packed schedule, but with the school district we are in now, he doesn't qualify for summer school. However, he will continue his regular therapy schedule this summer & we are all excited about that!
This is a different summer for us, a good summer, a summer we were looking forward too for once. Big Brother C has improved dramatically within the last year or two, this summer I'm not worried or stressed over him regressing. He's on a great path & if he does a little, that's ok, but I don't think it will happen this summer.

Summer 2015 is going to be amazing, when we are not participating in a therapy session you will find us at our local water park! For the first time ever I purchased season passes to Hawaiian Falls & we are so excited! Big Brother C is my little fish, he absolutely loves the water, so I am excited to spend our entire summer soaking up the sun & enjoying the water, it's sensory heaven for him!
We will also be taking a family vacation down to the beach in July & we can't wait, the sand in our toes, the breeze in our hair, it will be amazing!
So here's to saying good-bye to the summer blues & hello to summer fun! I'm hoping to have many more fun & exciting summer adventures with my kidos!
