C1 and his mom, Julie L.

Greetings from the state of Washington. My name is Julie. This is my first post since taking over administrative duties of this blog from Casdok, who is still operating her blog at Mother of Shrek. Thank you Casdok, for this opportunity.

Pictured with me is my oldest son C1, 13, who was diagnosed with Autism when he was six. He has been busy adjusting to a huge move from Michigan to Washington that occurred in March 2010.  He’d like to move back to his home state, but  is doing well with homeschooling, and is learning new things all the time. His dad, a Michigan State fan was quite dismayed when C1 recently declared the University of Michigan as his favorite college football team, and Hail to the Victors his favorite song. He's been going to college football games since age 7.
Swimming and playing games on his Nintendo 3DS are some of his favorite activities.  He also loves spending time with his eight-year-old brother, me and his dad. Going places (museums, the grocery store, post office, and Hawaii!!, for example) tops his list of favorite things to do too.
