Autism Awareness Month celebrated in our Metrodome! (Journal #66)

A cool thing happened last night at the Twins game. In honor of Autism Awareness month, a 13 year old boy with Autism lead the crowd in "Take me out to the ball game" during the 7th inning stretch. Kind of reminded me of Sam, and how he has been humming and singing before speaking as well. Check it out!

I will sing praises to my God while I have my
being. - Psalm 146:2

It's not exactly my favourite tune [it's one of those that once it's in your brain, you can't eradicate it] but in this version, I might have a different take.

Wow! Charlie had a period of singing it (courtesy of one of his computer toys). Are you going to be at the Minnesota Autism conference this week, just wondering....?

Jodi, Thanks!

Kristina, yes, going to just part of it, as Brent and I are tag teaming because of childcare. I am going to hear Temple on Wednesday night and Brent is going to hear Roy Grinker on Thursday night. Both of us are excited.
