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
