"Get Out Of There Goat Video !" Mini-Moment brought to you by, S.M.A.A.R.T.Mom

Dustin learns these (5) Magical  Words from our neighbor; helping Boo feel not so afraid:) To Note: Screen is between Boo & the goat, not glass.....safety reasons I'm sure you'll notice.

"Accepting the Outdoors Autism Video" : Mini-Moment brought to you by, S.M.A.A.R.T.Mom

A Typical Dustin would avoid the outdoors. Until Daddy hung a swing in "Dustin's Tree". He Loved the swing! But really touched my heart when he found something else to do other than swing. Click on the photo with Boo and the Cow to see this heart warming video.

Find a Therapeutic Place to Escape Autism" Pictures: brought to you by S.M.A.A.R.T.Mom

Our Visit to our  Kokomo Farm for Spring Break

What a wonderful time we had on our Farm this past week. Really nice to get away once in awhile. Sometimes you can discover that even the most simplest place can be so therapeutic, not just for your loved one with autism , but for the people who care for them as well. I "dubbed" our farm Kokomo after the Beach Boys song, just because that is how this place makes all of us feel. It's not Calgone, but it will definitely do :)

 So we  bought Dustin a swing to hang from the big oak tree in the front of our house. Dustin calls it " Dustin's Tree". We also rode the John Deere Gator around the property. Had soooo much fun with it! Dustin would say " Time to ride the Gator?" So cute the way he says it. Anyway, below are some pics I just had to share. Oh, yes.....our neighbor's goats came to visit us and brought two new kids with them "Dustin's Baby Goats". (LOL)
One of them tried to befriend Boo Bear, but he's still not ready for that ; but he did get closer to the goats than ever before. He's soooo comfortable out here on the Farm these days. So Awesome!  Enjoy the photos!

A Very Content Dustin

Baby Goats!

Come out and Play Dustin!

The kids just Love Dustin's Tree.

Boo Bear LOVES his New Tree Swing!

Riding the Gator with Dad!

Those Spots weren't There before?

Baby Goat tries to get Boo Bears Attention.

Love to have a cup of coffee in the morning with this for a start of the day view.

Spot? O.K. Maybe it's someone watching over our Boo Bear:)

No wonder why Dustin isn't swinging (LOL)

Swinging right into the evening hours.
