Infact, one of my mom's boarders is a 27yo man with AS and he was sooooo happy to have my family descend upon the ranch. He said it was like "being visited by an onvoy from the 'homeworld'". LOL. My mom said she had never seen him open up and talk to others before like he did over the weekend, she said he seemed so 'NT'ish. :)
I have to say, it was verrry nice to be able to have a 'break' from the kids. They were always there (somewhere) but I didn't have to worry about whether Jade was going to try to chase a scorpion down (all bugs must die) or whether Eva was going to get herself killed by climbing on things she shouldn't. There was always a pair of 'autism educated eyes' around, no matter where they went. LOL, it also helps that my mom re-vamped her property to be 'aspie friendly' with lots of little things of interst to look at, places where people could be *alone without actually being alone(unsupervised)*, and all the typical dangers of ranch life had been removed form the living compound (no barbed wire, sharp objects, unpainted surfaces, etc.) and adults were 'stationed' at key places around the proterty.
We had a good time over all. Eva had a few diabetic problems, but nothing a few vanilla waffers and more frequent eating couldn't handle. :) Glad to be back. Now I just have to get back into the swing of things.
