We also learned that Jason likes My Little Ponies. Duncan was not amused.

Duncan had a doctors appt that day to check his blood pressure. He was 130/80 in July and in October he was 90/50. Swimming does a body good.
Jason doesn't understand Halloween. He doesn't ever want to dress up and this year it was even worse. With herpes all over his mouth and a weeks long fever he really didn't want to do anything. This was Brett's idea of having a "costume" without one.

Child Family Fun Day.
It was our last day at Lagoon. It was Frightmares and Samantha didn't want to have anything to do with the haunted houses. There isn't one picture of her in this bunch. Jason was sick, and so Brett stayed home with him.
This picture was of a whinny Duncan. I strangely wanted to have him wait for the rest of the family before we went into a haunted house.
This is the crew that went through the haunted houses together.
I love this picture!!!
Duncan wouldn't stick his head through the hole far enough.
It's always nice when the crew will help support your head.
Duncan had to help Max.
Duncan is at this phase where he thinks he's really funny. He has to call attention to himself everywhere. I do love the photo bomb in the back though.

Jason had an appointment with Dr. Muntz. It was a follow up to see if we were able to clear up his sinus's. He was doing much better and hasn't had much of a problem since.
Tori got to go to flute lessons. She enjoys this time with Deeann. It's fun to see her developing a new talent.
Jason loves his ipad. It is something that is hard for us to live without.

Jason doesn't sleep. Oh....wait.....you already know that. One of the few things that used to put him to sleep was Rock Band. He likes the moving colors and music.....I think. Since Rock Band isn't a "thing" anymore we went to my parents house and recorded some for Jasons Ipad.
When Jason doesn't sleep it makes life hard for everyone. He's not like Duncan, Tori, or Sam who I can say, "Sorry, don't wake me up." He has to be watched almost all the time. When he has a sleepless night the ipad is a God send, because at least he will stay where that is. He also jumps on the bed, so if Brett tries to "sleep" it doesn't happen. I however sleep through just about anything...except for Jason's asthma attacks. So I can kind of get some sleep. It's more like I'm in a half state of sleep. It's not my favorite way to spend the night, but it's possible. Just watch out the next day if I can't get a nap.

Tori called me after school and asked if she could go to her friends house. It does this Mama's heart good when my girl has good friends.
Tori was given the Student of the Month award for Science. She was so excited to see this letter.
Jason wears us out sometimes and we do the same for him. He put the pillow over his head as if to say, "I'm done with you people!"

Duncan is my big GEEK! He flip flops between Supernatural and Doctor Who. Grandma Siddoway let him have this awesome trench coat. He wants to look like Castiel. I think he looks like a Missionary. Either way I'm ok with it.
Jason is not doing well. He doesn't feel good or something. He's been having major sensory underload. He's constantly moving and he swings between ok and not. So this day he'd been crying for quite a while. I decided to give him a bath. He did settle down.

My poor Samantha is having allergies. She has excema all over her pretty face. She called me from school and her eyes are killing her. Jason and I had to go to school and give her eye drops and some ibuprofen.
Yes....this is jason on an elementary school bathroom floor. He was so naughty at the store buying eyedrops that I didn't have the energy to take care of Sam and fight him off the floor. Yes I'm a good Mom....

Can you believe it? I've caught up!!!
Jason doesn't feel good though. He woke up and didn't want to get out of bed. When I went to get him dressed he threw a tantrum. I laid back down with him and he settled down. But when the bus came he freaked. When I got him off the bus he was crying and he cried and fussed for another twenty minutes. He finally settled down and is just snuggling with me in bed. I didn't feel well the last few days. I think I might have been more than just run down. Jason's off track for about four weeks so I think it's good for him to have a break.

Jason got to sit with some wonderful ladies at Special Needs Primary. We are trying to get him to stay without me, so I sit with another sweet boy while his aid and one of the primary presidency sits with him. Yes. On Monday it took two adults to maintain Jason.
Then we ran to the golf course for Child Family Pictures. It is true chaos. Poor Leslie has to try and figure it out, while we all try and control our kids. Most of the time we cater to Jason so we can catch him looking at the camera. Rarely is he smiling in those big group photos.
We ate dinner at Mom's and then headed home for the night. It's always nice to not have to cook dinner.
Then Jason showed us his new trick. He blew kisses to everyone as he left. My sweet friend Darla taught him on the bus ride home. I'm sure going to miss her working with Jason.

It was time for the Child Family Halloween Party. The older kids got to put on a spook alley down in the basement. It couldn't be too spooky because there are little people. They did have fun though.
Tori was the wolf.
Duncan was an ape.
Samantha was an explorer.
After all was done we went down to the elementary school to play. The kids rode in the back of the truck the whole block we drove. Lauren drove home. I know.....safe.

It has been a struggle, but Jason made it all the way through Special Needs Primary.
He loves the vacuum.
We went to Mom's to get the water bed. He didn't help much.
We got it filled up.
I've decided that Jason has Autism because he was born in the wrong era. He loves everything 70's and 80's.
Successful one night.
