My Second Son Graduated from Primary School Today! :) Can't Post

I'm one very proud Mum today, my second son has graduated from Primary School and he won an award for Most Improved! Couldn't believe it when his name was called out Heart

As many of you know, all three of my boys are autistic, so this achievement is a very big deal for us, when we think what all the "experts" told us to expect when they were diagnosed. Can't keep the smile off my face CoolHeart


My gorgeous boy with his Graduation Certificate


With his equally proud Dad! Heart


With Me Smile


The Four Amigos! Cool My Evan with his three best mates Smile


With his graduation present from Mr Kel and I and his Gold Award Medal

Congratulations Sweetheart, we're so very proud of you! EvilHeart

*hugs, love & blessings all*

Way-to-go mom:)! [In reply to] Can't Post

I am delighted with such happy events kel. We are sorely in need of them at this moment.

He is a good looking and happy youngster indeed!. All 3 of you keep up the great work! And i really like smiling, actually- beaming parents too.

Now that is a good way to end a day and to hit the hay.
Good night to the Kelio KlanSmile

Congratulations to him and everyone! [In reply to] Can't Post

Graduating, with an award to go with it! What a great way to end his Primary "career"! Hugs to him! Cool

And what a present to get him. That looks like an amazing watch! If it's okay to ask, what kind is it, and what all does it do? (It resembles one my son has, with a bunch of functions on it!)

Thanks sil :) [In reply to] Can't Post

We're just so proud of him, and delighted that the school recognised all the hard work he's done this year.

It's something all my boys have complained of over the years, that they put so much effort into their work, but it seldom gets acknowledged.

He looked so stunned when his name was called out. So did his parents! Laugh

He's done so well this year [In reply to] Can't Post

When we got home, I had a phone call from the Special Needs Co-ordinator, wanting to add her congratulations to Evan (and us, she missed us at the school). She was almost as excited about it as we were SmileHeart

Well, I think he's handsome, but I could be a little biased WinkHeartLaugh

Yeah.. [In reply to] Can't Post

it had finally sunk in that he'd won the award by then. Before he just looked totally stunned Laugh

His best mate also won a Literary Award (that's the boy holding a book in his arms). So he was really happy for him too.

It feels like it, but it's been two years since he finished Primary School. He starts Year 10 next year, which is so hard for us to believe. Even harder is that he towers over us now, that *can't* be my baby! lol.Laugh

Thanks dernie :) [In reply to] Can't Post

They had the medallions specially made at the Perth Mint, so they're real gold. One of his mates told him he should sell it and use the money to buy something else. Evan told his mate what he could do with that suggestion Laugh Told him it means more to him than money and he's keeping it! That's my boy!! Heart

It's a limited edition with his football teams logo on it (West Coast Eagles Cool.) We also got his name and the date of his graduation engraved on the back. I think it has a stop watch function. But not too sure on everything else, haven't read the instructions that came with it, to be honest. Blush

Well done! Congratulations to your son! [In reply to] Can't Post

...and never mind what the 'experts' say. The real experts are his parents and it looks like you guys are doing everything right!

I think I may have mentioned to you a while back that my sister's son is also autistic - she had 'experts' advice and expectations at the beginning too. Right now, he is in his third year at college and is doing very well! I just know I'll be reading similar news in the years to come from you!

Cheers!

Well, if we'd listened to the "experts" our sons would never do anything. Shows how much they know Wink

My eldest son starts Year 10 next year, and has already told us (and his teachers) that he wants to study Environmental Science when he leaves school. So they've already put in place a learning guide to help him get there. The only thing holding back all our kids is negativity and nay-sayers, so, big high five to your nephew too Smile
