A is for April, Autism Awareness, and A to Z Blog Challenge!

It’s that time again!!

A is for …

April, Autism Awareness, and A to Z Blog Challenge!




Yes, it’s April 2017 and here in Maine, the April Fool’s joke by old man winter is yet another snowstorm–for real, NO joke! 


                           Yes, snow for April Fool’s Day!


April is also Autism Awareness month. The purpose of focusing on autism during the month of April is to increase understanding and acceptance of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and those afflicted with it. Since my own precious oldest granddaughter is likely on the spectrum (potentially with Asperger’s), it’s especially important to me to help spread awareness and hope researchers discover new insights into ASD.


My youngest daughter Joy and her 4 1/2-year-old oldest daughter Chloe, my first granddaughter.


AND since it is April again, it’s time for the A to Z Blog Challenge, the annual event in which bloggers participate in writing 26 posts, one for each of the 26 letters of the alphabet. I am joining it once again to make sure I blog consistently this month, since accountability (another A word!) is a motivating factor.

This is the schedule for posting this month:


So What About You?


Did anything special or strange happen on your April Fool’s Day?

    I can’t believe you got snow in April! I didn’t do anything exciting for April Fool’s this year, but last year I brought a bunch a veggies to work in a Krispy Kreme box! I don’t think my co-workers appreciated it too much. Lol

    I am doing my share for Autism Awareness (just not on my blog, and I should mention it more). Sorry about your April Fools snow, but it came just in time for “A” day – hope you get spring, soon!

    With a 58 year old brother in law who has autism and mild intellectual disability,every month is Autism Awareness Month. Your journey with your granddaughter is also going to be an Unknown Journey, but it will be an enriching one, I guarantee, taking you on paths you may never have known, otherwise.

    I didn’t know that April was autism awareness month so thank you for sharing! And good luck with the challenge (accountability is tough haha) but posting about it will definitely help 🙂

    Phew that’s an ambitious challenge! Good for you! I’m still struggling to keep up with one post a week, but in my defense I just wrote a 7,500+ word post. Eeek!
