Ben's get-away note

Ben refused to do his homework yesterday. He was very upset and signed that he was going to run away. He went to get a post-it note and pencil, in what I thought was simply a dramatic flourish. But this is what he produced. For an 18-year-old who couldn't write a year ago, this was solid gold. We high-fived and Kenold and I jumped around in excitement. Then Ben settled down and did his work.


Oh, Louise! What a great exciting day. I'm thrilled for you! Also it's great to see Ben express his frustrations and then be able to settle in and do his homework. Big hugs for Ben.

Thank you so much for sharing that! I got a good laugh and hope you'll tell Ben that if he needs a refuge from his strict parents, he can run away to southern California! I just love that kid!

Thanks Daria!

And Elizabeth, I'll let Ben know that in future all he needs is a one-way ticket to LA! :)

Awesome! Thanks for the giggle. Go, Ben!
