Skywatch Friday – Thunderhead

We took our son to college earlier this week and on the way back we found this big huge cloud squatting over Tulsa. As big and scary as it was, there was only a little lightning and thunder and it moved on.

Just a couple hours earlier, our son was beaming just before we left him. We took him to a college that has a program for young people like him on the Autism Spectrum who want to get a degree. So we moved him in and we and he got oriented on what is going on and then it came time for goodbyes and he was ready. We were to, kind of, we noticed that we didn’t pack tissues in the car for the trip back home. He has almost 50 hours of college hours with a solid B average from a community college here in Tulsa so we know he can do the academics. He just needs help navigating things socially and we think he can get where he is enrolled.

I am thankful that there are more and more programs to help youngsters with various issues get an education and learn how to live independently.

    That is great that your son can study in a good environment for him. The last few decades they have really advanced about their knowledge of autism and how to help them Wish him all the success from the Sky Watch-ers:) By the way, love that enormous cloud!

    What wonderful parents you are to seek a college that your son can learn how to be independent and responsible for himself. Amazing that he has a B average in college. Congratulations to all three of you. I am so proud that Tulsa offers such a program in their college. YEA!

    Wow, that sky looks like it was going to pour.

    I think it’s wonderful that you found such a good college for your son. And a B average? That’s wonderful! I hope he loves every minute of it.

    That’s a massive thunderhead. I will hope that the college program is everything they assured you and your son it would be. I have a 60 year old autistic brother in law and there are so many supports out there, I’ve found, than there were just a few years ago. I hope that’s true where you are.

    oh your son is on the Autism spectrum? My oldest has mild aspergers and it is in fact in my family with several cousins. Aren’t aspies and autistic people such neat individuals? I’ve learned so much over the years especially compassion for other people and not to judge.

    I know Logan will do great! I’m sure you and Heather will do great too once the shock of not having the kid in the house wears off. Thank goodness for opportunities like this.
