Here are my random 5 moments for the week:
WINNING: I won a very cool packet at Autism Classroom News. That included a very cute weather dressing activity. I was so excited because I wrote IEPs last month for some of my kids to identify the appropriate clothing for given weather conditions.She is participating in the awesome link up where donations from TPT stores are going to help Oklahoma Teachers.
BOGO Book Giveaway: I'm hosting a book giveaway and here are the books you can enter to win.

We have a contract: Our offer was accepted and we are closing on a house in mid June. This is what I'll be doing all summer long.
Texas Autism bills: The bill mandating cameras in self contained special education classrooms conveniently died Tuesday, because it did not make it to the calendar on time. I do understand the outrage by the parents who have worked really hard to get this bill as far as it has gone, but lets look on the bright side, people are TALKING about it. Also, the Texas state House of Representatives has just sent Gov. Rick Perry a bill that would do away with the age cap on autism insurance benefits, which is currently at age 10. (yeah I wish autism disappeared at age 10)
Autism Positivity Button: Please check out this au-some website I found this week. It is really inspiring and a peek into what it is like to live with autism on a daily basis
