Flashy kid

So, I am VERY proud of 9. He has Fragile X but he still tries so hard, and his teachers are amazing. He is doing things I never thought he could—thank goodness for good teachers and 9 certainly has that blessing in hand. I had to video tape him doing his flash cards because he does them so fast. On this video he is a little nervous and not going as fast as usual; as you will be able to see because I have to keep lying to him that the camera is off, even though he knows that isn't true. I also think that this is a good video for those who may be curious about FXS. You'll see at the end of the video that he is facing a little anxiety over the fact that he is done with his task but, I am still filming him.

Man, I love him, and I am so proud of all his accomplishments.

Now, for a little laugh... (Names have been left out to protect the guilty)

Someone was in a real goofy mood and found one of the kids ski masks--didn't quite fit--made for a hilarious night! He looks like a wrestler or is reminiscent of Spider Man's first costume (from the movie).

I think you left out 2 people that have helped 9 become the smart kid that he is- his mom and dad! It can't be said enough...your kids are where they are because they have loving, devoted parents.

Ha ha. Nice luchador! You mighty man in the ring! Ba ha ha! That just made my day, pretty sure:)
And Brighton is doing awesome. It's so cool to see him doing those kinds of things!

I agree with the comment above. You guys have done remarkable things with all your kids. We look up to you so much.
The luchador is missing his cowboy hat. I had a good laugh. He kind of reminds me of strong bad with the squinty eyes, if you know who that is :)
