Super Star!

It was quite an honor to have Eli chosen to be the cover boy for the current issue of Playdate Magazine, a bi-monthly publication put out by our local newspaper!!  Their website describes the magazine this way:

     "PlaydateYakima.com and PLAYDATE Magazine are a gathering spot for Yakima Valley parents and caregivers of infants through teens. We’re all about community events and happenings, activities and recreation; about where to locate educational opportunities and fun; and about how to find useful products and services specific to the needs of busy young families."

It's currently the profile picture on their facebook page, too!

And if you'd like an autographed copy.....just let me know....we just might have a copy, or three or ten, lying around, and I'd be happy to send one to you!

It's pretty awesome to walk into the grocery store, your doctor's office, and even your favorite restaurant...and there is your son's face on the cover of a magazine in a rack!   I'm beside myself with joy!

Special thanks to Scott Klepach, and other staff members, for choosing Eli, and for being so accomodating during Eli's photoshoot.  Eli wasn't feeling well that week, and it was tough to get a good shot.  They were so patient and kind, and it was great to work with them.

I might even get to contribute a little story once in a while about raising a special needs child, and ways for local events to be more inclusive and accessible for the physically disabled. 

Very cool!


(FYI for family:  My computer died and is in the shop...I should have it back on Sunday or Monday.
Sorry if you've emailed me this week and I haven't answered.)

How wonderful!! Oh my gosh, I bet you are just so happy. I remember when I had written a story about transition to middle school and having it published in Exceptional Parent Magazine. I was also beside myself with joy.

Awsome!
