Week 2: Walking on

He’s ready!

Even as my world continues to feel scattered and hectic trying to piece together a GFCF–or at least CF–diet, Logan’s life steadily marches on.  Last week was his first week of pre-school, in an Early Childhood Special Education class for other 3-year-olds with similar IEPs.  I’m really so thankful we live in an area with a wonderful school district.

And although I may not be great at cooking (or even competent at it sometimes), I am great at walking!  I will be walking in Walk Now for Autism Speaks fundraising campaign to raise awareness and money for research toward fitting in the missing pieces of autism.  I continue to be amazed and dismayed at how many people are affected with this disorder–1 in 88!–and hope to do a small part toward treatment and prevention.  I know my family is incredibly lucky that Logan is high-functioning and does not have many of the struggles other children with autism do, so I feel I am walking more for others than for my son.  I encourage everyone reading this to join me either in walking or through donations!  Please visit our team site at
