Our Journey Raising Two Children with Special Needs

This blog chronicles our life raising two children, Nicholas 14, diagnosed with Prader-Willi Syndrome and Weston 17, diagnosed with Autism/Asperger's/ADHD. It's the ups, the downs, the joys, the sorrows and most importantly, the beauty of living a life less perfect, a life more meaningful.

Spring into Snow

Here in New England, March is a very fickle month.

It is not unusual to see either warm spring-like temperatures prompting the trees to bud early or cold coastal storms that dump a foot or more of  heavy, wet snow. One of the most severe snow storms in New England history dumped over 2 feet of snow on the first day of April.

Can you guess which extreme we weathered today?

 

 Cold wet snow and heavy winds battered us for most of the day.

Tomorrow may be the official start of spring, but here in Massachusetts, Old Man Winter steadfastly refuses to let go of his frosty grip.


 This has been the 5th snowiest winter on record. Most of us here are grouchy and sun-deprived, we are ready for warmer weather and the bright colors that accompany spring.

School was canceled again today and it is likely that the boys will be attending school 'til July.


 It was good news for Nicholas, however, who was more than happy to spend another day resting quietly at home.
