Today I took both boys to the Mall, and we had a blast. Michael celebrated Nick eating french fries with us and even mugged for the camera...
Michael is growing up I am afraid. Today, he wanted a full fledged MEAL-not a Happy Meal, but a grown up meal!! I told him there would not be a toy inside and he said "I know; I don't care." So, yes, that is HIS medium drink you see in the pic, not mine! He shared his fries with Nick, but ate about 80% of the food himself. After that, we went to Build-A-Bear; where he got a little stuffed animal. A Husky dog that he named "Rudolph". Here is a pic of Michael and "Rudolph".

This is my SITE to help my brother and best friend in their struggle with autism and asperger's. I will be walking along with my mom, my brother Nick, and our friends from Spokane. I know it is a couple of months away, but we want to raise as much money as we can before October, so we are getting an early start!!

Michael has been out of school for just over a week now and is spending his days playing with his friends. He has a new friend who just moved in next door, and they get along like two peas in a pod. Michael has been over to his house nearly every day-and they run all over the place in between our two houses and the house across the street. Michael has come home drenched in water more times than I can count. We went and got him enrolled in the summer reading program at the library and he has read two books so far. He also has another loose tooth, and should have a nice tan going by the end of summer. He spends most of his days shirtless and soaked. What better summer for an 8yr old??
Not sure what we are doing for the 4th of July yet. We will probably head on over to Ft. Lewis-they have a nice fireworks display and it is close to home so we don't have to deal with the traffic. Mike plans on taking Michael to see the movie Transformers tomorrow. They are both excited, as am I at the thought of only having one boy to deal with instead of 3!
