In June of 2014 my family learned that my 4 year old son was autistic. This is a window into our world. What it's like day in, and day out for an autistic child.

Jump, Jump, Jump, Run, Run, Run

Yesterday was an outside day. Justin loves it outside ! One of his favorite things to do is jump on the trampoline. He also enjoys digging holes, swinging, playing with water, and one of his all time favorites is running.

He will run in a big circle around the whole play area.

I don't know what it is with running, but generally autistic kids really enjoy it. Maybe they feel a sense of freedom when they run. Or maybe it's simply the pure joy of speed, and the air hitting his face.

The last couple years when we would go outside. Justin would eat handfuls of dirt. He would also pick off clover flowers, and eat them.

This year, these behaviors seem to have diminished.
