Whisper it. It almost feels like summer here in Yorkshire. Warm, dry, traffic jams, the shops are sold out of strawberries and watermelons. Yep it must be summer here.

So next steps….

This morning Hawklad mentioned that he is now aiming to return to school at the start of September. If he can’t go back then he will go for full homeschooling.

Today in the summer sun we tried a day time walk. The first day time walk for Hawklad in over a year. A carefully selected walk. Quiet. Rarely visited. Across farm land. It was a success. An hour walk completed. Ok not another human encountered but it is another step forward.

So we have less than 3 months to see if we can build Hawklad from deserted walks to being crammed in a classroom with 30 plus other students and teachers. That’s a tough ask. So little time to take so many steps forward.

  2. I am one of the few that really does understand. I still have no idea whether it will be my daughter and my eldest granddaughter coming over at some point for a Memorial service, or her husband, and my 17 year old granddaughter. Disney/Universal might be a persuader but I very much doubt it 🥲

  3. You and Hawklad … you’re a team … you can do it. You got this. You … must … do it. He must learn to live in a world populated by humans, fools & idiots that they are. And you will guide him through this maze of life. I’ve got faith in both of you. Hugs ‘n love to you both. ❤

  4. I see, that’s truly a task. After such a long time of being isolated to go back into the crowd but it is wonderful to see how he is determined to get there. What an amazing boy!
