Today, Miss Lynnette came for OT. They made a Carmel Apple Cookie Dessert Pizza and oh my! It was yummy!

Following directions, reading a recipe, trying new things... all good stuff!!!!

He colored and made this bat while they were waiting for the cookie to bake.

Today ended up being a quiet day. We were going to head up north to Flagstaff to leaf peek, but Ryan was gone 13.5 hours on Saturday and Michael ended up working 12. We then thought about going to a local pumpkin patch, but that kinda got nixed too. So, we went to Ted's to eat and that was about that.
I did get the Halloween stuff up finally!

And for a DS acceptance link....

20 Truths Everyone Should Know About Down Syndrome...

Today we were delighted to be able to participate in The Color Dash | Gilbert. Matthew's ST's daughter and husband were supposed to run it, but had a conflict at the last minute. They asked if we wanted their tickets for it, and since Matthew and I had just gone on that long walk at Riparian Reserve, I figured he'd be good to go for the distance (it's a 5K - 3.2 mile fun run). I picked up our packets Friday night, so we were ready to go in the morning.

Dude got up and saw the t-shirt on the table and put it on. But it took him a bit to figure out what it was for! Then he was ready to go! Good thing it wasn't too far ahead in time!
Here he is all clean and ready pre-run.

The Dash benefits Sharing Down Syndrome Arizona for this run! So awesome! They raised over $17,000!!!!! Woot!!!!!!
Matthew and his buddy Chase were dancing away with a group of ladies pre-run.

Part of our group pre-run...

Right after the Dash! It was a loop around a local park, but you had to do 2 loops to do the full distance. I knew we were in trouble when we'd gone .25 of a mile and he was already asking where the finish was! Once I figured out that we had to loop it twice - I knew we were never going to get that done! So - we did 1 loop - half the course and called it a day!

He rested a bit and we drank water, then it was hoola hoop time!

We hung out until the finale - the final color throw!

Parts of our group after! With me!

They were covered and sticky and sweaty, but had a blast!!!!!

Then there's a shout out for Ryan today! He got home last night from the away game at Midnight. Woke up at 6am to get back to school by 7am for JrROTC. Then straight to band rehearsal for tonight's competition. See him there in his BDU's???

Meet Matthew's monster! His name is Mario Kart. He lives in Las Vegas and loves chicken strips to eat! Matthew didn't finish writing yet - but it was too cute to not take a photo of!
Teacher conferences were today. He's doing really well. His math and reading skills are at the high end of 1st/2nd Grade level (he's in 6th grade). His comprehension skills are going up. His retell is really kicking into gear. He is looking at the calendar at school and at home and telling what is coming up.
The District has a new way of looking at/grading things this year. They are seeing him as a 6th grader and grading him accordingly, which seems kinda wrong. Makes his grades in math and reading much lower than what the actual grade would be. Kinda stinks, so we'll see how it goes!

I had to go scout out a location today, so I took along my camera and we went for a nice little walk after school!

Miss Adrian came today for ST. First you worked on your homework. Matthew had brought up a retell of Monday when we went to helps friends by letting their dogs out for a bit, so they worked on retelling the story with more details...
