Happy 4th Birthday to my youngest grandson today.

Just pausing to say that Autism has a huge spectrum.

Born prematurely and overcoming major obstacles with the shear love and determination of his mother. Adam is learning fast and wears his heart on his sleeve. He’s bright and the most important thing to him about school is he is making lots of friends. Enthusiasm is his middle name as everything he does is dramatic. One of his favorite phases: Are you excited? We are so proud to have him added to our family.

It is a peculiar part of the good photographer’s adventure to know where luck is most likely to lie in the stream, to hook it, and to bring it in without unfair play and without too much subduing it.

~ James Agee (American – Novelist / November 27, 1909 – May 16, 1955)

*Today is my newest grandson’s 3rd birthday party, but due to pandemic restrictions we choose not to attend today, but to take a present over last night and spend some time with him without the crowds (and to help keep the gathering to 10 in total for the party). It was an excellent decision. We had him and his parents all to ourselves and had a wonderful visit. As we were leaving he was getting ready for bed and putting on the spiderman pajamas we gave him. I hope they brought him good dreams.
