Still on the hunt for an iPad2

We are still trying to earn an iPad for Joshua, and I have decided to start a Chipin event to get support from our friends and family who would like to donate if they are able. This process is easy, just chip in what you can to the event, it gets sent to my paypal account and when we reach our goal we will get an iPad and some apps for it. Easy peasy. If you or anyone you know would like to help us out in any way, either through our iPad Challenge through (just comment if you need instructions on that), or would just like to chip in to get this great technology in the hands of my adorable little boy please consider us!

More elf insanity.

So when I decided to do this elf contest it was for a very specific reason. I need that iPad2. Not for me, but for Monk (not his real name), and his therapy. About 10 months ago my world came crashing down when we were given the diagnosis of Autism for our 20 month old son. Since then with therapy and intervention he is doing a lot of signing and his ability to interact with others has improved tremendously. During his therapy sessions he has the opportunity to use an iPad to use apps that are specifically designed to motivate kids on the spectrum to learn skills and have fun. Having one at home would be a great tool for his continued improvement. If he never speaks the iPad can also help with communication as there are apps that allow him to point to things he wants or what he wants to convey to others. It is my understanding that he will eventually learn to talk, but maybe not in a typical way.

Anyway, I took a lot of pictures of Holly and while some were just not good, some turned out well and I had a hard time making a choice. In the end the picture we submitted was used because it was pretty focused. I have some others to share with you now. These are raw images, without any editing.
