Gone for a Week
As some of you may know, my son has sensory integration dysfunction (that is improving greatly, thank you) and "learning differences." I found him a wonderful special ed camp that he will be attending for the next two weeks (11 days, actually). I'm kinda a nervous wreck about it. I've never been away from him for that long.
So, what my husband and I are doing is staying nearby the camp (a beautiful place in the Colorado mountains) for a few days to make sure he settles in okay and I can be at peace with my worrisome Mommy brain. Then, we're off to Mesa Verde. Did you know that it's the centennial of the park? This is so cool: They're opening up new cliff dwellings for the first time-- and some that haven't been open since the '60's and even the '30's--for the 100-year celebration. I'm glad we're going to get to be part of it.
It should be fun. We need a break, but I feel more comfortable that we're not leaving the state. We are so blessed to live in a state that is so gorgeous! Yay, Colorado!
While I'm gone, I'll leave you with a few more links (see the post below about the linking action I'm doing). If you've put up a link to me about the blog carnival, or for any reason, please know that I appreciate it. I'm just kinda slow with getting all my blog "ducks in a row." So, here are a few more blog links to chew on: From Tracie, The Cheesemeister's Psychological Sewer, and Quinn at One Voice Is Heard.
In a week or so, I'll be putting up the rest of those links to the 20 bloggers I was telling you about. I see that I need to update the link to Wolfbaby to reflect the new type of blog installed there as well (thanks for the heads up, Moof).
When I return, I'm going to start a series of posts that I am quite excited about. It will be a risk, and it is scary for me. But, I feel that we must take risks if we are to raise awareness and erase stigma, in order to advocate for survivors of sexual violence and child abuse. So...stay tuned people!
Can't wait untill the new posts. You'll have my support.
We'll be waiting for you when you get back!
smiles to you and yours
