Celebrate Everyday!!

You don't need a special day to celebrate your marriage. Dress up and enjoy everyday. Make plans to keep your life exciting. Ever sit back and wonder why 'they are always doing things'. 'We never do anything' Why are they having fun...'

They are making their fun and you have to make your fun too. What you do with your time is up to you. Get out there and make it happen. It doesn't take tons of money, just a little planning. Maybe you and your significant other can take turns doing the planning and have fun.

The Story of Brian-for any parent that has a child with a learning problem....

Brian was equally determined to learn everything he could. Once he saw how much he was advancing, he amazed us all. By the end of kindergarten, he read an entire book to the first grade class at Shields Elementary School.

We continued to have meetings with the Principle, Teachers, and Child Psychologist each semester to determine how much special education vs. general education was needed. There seemed to be a light at the end of the tunnel.
