The Summer of the Beach


We live in Florida.   At my house, we are less than 30 minutes at any given time from a beach.  A little longer if we want to visit the Atlantic but I could be at the Gulf of Mexico within the hour.  It’s with my head hung in complete shame that I confess my youngest daughter had not been to the beach until she was 10.  Yep, 10.  In my defense,  my child with autism hates the beach.  As in , sensory overload.  In order to take the girl to the beach who loves it, I have to make other arrangements for the boy who hates it.  Seemed like a ton of work to me so I never did it.  In all honesty, that’s not fair to the girl .  This is the summer I change that for her.

Want to see how I change it for her?  Hop on over to see my article this month at Homeschool Mosaics!
