The gift

As we mentioned yesterday, guilt of leaving us (the power of the sad eyes from afar) forced our Lady to get us a gift. 

This is what we got:

Lady tried to make videos of us with it, but they suck, so she is not putting them here.
Hailey solved it in about 20 seconds.
Emma solved it in 53 seconds.
Phod figured it out in about 35 seconds.

Lady was impressed with all of us!

Aside: Thank you for sharing your stories about businesses etc that hire "disabled" people. I don't even really like that term because all of the individuals I work work with who have autism are way smarter then me and they see the world in such amazing ways. It is often communication or a behaviour we would see as "weird" that stops them from participating fully. As we are learning, all the cool people who change the world (Einstein, Steve Jobs etc etc) likely were on the spectrum. 

Here is a video I love about a young man in Edmonton who has started his own business (with some support). To learn about Anthony, click on his name.

Have a great day and we look forward to reading your blogs today!
