As a mother, I will never give up on my child. As a mother of a child who has autism, I will never give up hope.
I look into his eyes and I see all the potential that he has to offer to this beautiful world and I just know that one day the world can see what I see.

That was easy.

Today we went ‘Back-To-School’ supplies shopping at Staples, which I must say, it was easy. We didn’t have a school supplies list on us, and we knew that Staples provided lists for each school in the city. We just looked up Bryce’s school at a little computer booth they had set up with a printer, selected his grade, and printed out the list.

I’m not going to lie though, it took us awhile to remember what grade Bryce was going into. (I told you I wasn’t ready to let go of summer yet!) After doing the math of how many SEA’s we’ve had in the past, how old he was when he started going to school, and trying to remember each school years teacher for each grade, we finally came to the conclusion that he was going into grade 4. Wow! Where did the time go?

Bryce seemed excited when we mentioned that we were there to go school supplies shopping for him. He even helped push the shopping cart, and made quick decisions when we gave him choices between different supplies, while using that opportunity to have him label the items too.

Our only complaint during our school supplies hunt (and this happens almost every year) would have to of been when we were looking for items that required a 1 or 2 quantities of that product and you had to buy it in a higher quantity because they don’t produce it in smaller quantities. Anyone else notice that while doing your school supplies shopping? At least we have extra highlighters, pens, and pencils ‘just in case’.

Thanks for reading,
