The Community Had Great FUN at the Chalk Festival

WRITTEN BY JAN BEAVER COADĀ from the 1st AutismHWY Chalk Festival!

 

My new friend Ezekial was quite the artist and shared my love of lavender and helped paint my puzzle piece. Armand came out and connected with resources for a local conference. It was great to visit with some Facebook friends and connect with them in person.

Creative JJ’s Jewelry was a HUGE hit!

It’s been a fun day!

A Celebrated…SEASON!!

Seems I just heard about A-League a couple of days ago. What ?? Autism Baseball ? Little League teams for players with AUTISM !? Really? YES, REALLY !! And as the saying goes TIME FLIES when you’re having fun!!

The INAUGURAL SEASON ends this Sat.! Can’t believe how fast and smooth it went…considering (?). I mean, I had A LOT of people looking at me with consternation a few times. I love to chat it up as I go along my way. So, many people I come across know all about AutismHWY & A-League. Just can’t stop talking about them. I see both projects as a WORLD OF HELP!!

And a World of FUN!! I really didn’t think Wyatt would enjoy it as much as he has! Before his AUTISM set in…he would play a little whiffle ball. Hitting and running 2 yr.old style! When we would say, “Hey Batter-Batter” he would lift his leg like a pitcher on the mound ! But, that went away and I didn’t want to push it. I could get him to play ball /catch with me in the pool. So I guess I kind of settled for that. But, no more! This outlet to exercise and interaction with teammates, coaches and friendly families…AWESOME!

Something worth fighting for and celebrating!!! JUST WHAT WE’RE DOING!! Join US this Sunday in San Dimas at Marchant Park! 1-5 P.M. We will be there honoring our players. For giving it a shot! Learning a lot and making friends. Friends with AUTISM! What a concept. So many would have you believe that, that is impossible. Yet, we parents, coaches, teachers, siblings and care-givers …KNOW BETTER! We witnessed it! A pure success for kids and adults. It was a little bumpy here and there…but just like any good ride you just hold on and don’t let go!!

Which is EXACTLY RIGHT!! We will keep the ball rolling with a SUMMER/FALL Season!! All the info can be found at the SDLL website! You can click on from our Interesting Site section on the left!! Registration will be at the ballpark this Sunday and next Saturday! NOW back to the Celebration at hand!! We are really looking forward to this! There will be Games and Food for mind and belly! An Awesome Raffle…for FUN PRIZES…An Amazing Performance by an Amazing Band…ARREST MY SISTER for fantastic entertainment !! Last but not least the CELEBRATION of this accomplishment! The Accomplishment of starting out a season and seeing it through! A season like NO~OTHER, that had never been done before!! MAKING HISTORY …acquiring friends…learning the game… while having FUN!!

IT CAN’T GET MUCH BETTER THAN THAT!!

The “A-LEAGUE” Family

Was conceived by Lora Mancini…implemented by San Dimas California. And brought to life by all of us parents!! It takes a group-effort and that we have had! Yes we still have 3 games to play in this opening SEASON but, I am just so grateful! Yesterdays action was as fun as ever!! The sun was high a nice breeze drifting through…and tons of smiles rounding the bases!! The perfect afternoon!

Wyatt is enjoying it now more than ever. I see him smile with pride when everyone calls for him to bat. “C’mon Wyatt get your helmet”, ” Your-turn Wyatt”!! He does this chirping laugh when he is particularly happy. Now his “A-League ” buddies are hearing that CHIRP!! Definitely SOMETHING to TWEET about!!!

There is alot of movement being made. You can physically see it in my photos! While going through my gallery I had to laugh at Wyatt’s face on opening day …he was literally squinting at me. Squinting and probably, wondering what is all this pomp and circumstance?! What was the big-deal ? It is just baseball people. A little round ball that I don’t really mess with. He was wondering what was in store for him?? TOO CUTE!

This weeks game pictures of Christy were amazing! I actually had known Christy! Before… I discovered she was on the “A-LEAGUE” Braves! Wyatt and Christy had attended 2 summer day-camps together at Casa Colina in Pomona Ca. I am a parent that needed to stay on premises due to toileting issues so, I enjoyed seeing all the different kids. I had an instant fondness for Christy. She is very high-maintenance…needing lots of 1 on 1 ! Yesterday she was on fire… looking like quite the player!! So amazing to see big changes in these players. From A to Z ! The bottom-line is this A- league is a big HIT!!

A Grandslam actually !! The players are rounding the bases…but the impact is hitting home with ALL OF US!! Parents, Siblings, Grandparents,Cousins…Caring Aunts & Uncles, Therapists it runs the gamut! I have even seen an x-teacher or 2 “checking-up” on a former student. SO HeartWARMING!!

EXACTLY what I have been planning~ for AutismHWY ! A Place for ALL of US to SUPPORT Our A.S.D. Family members and Their support TEAMS !! Linking US together through interests and commonalities . Perhaps, making connections with someone through a difference. So much HELP, INFORMATION and FUN ! It will be such an amazing network of inspirational people with MANY stories and ideas to share!

PROMOTING FRIENDSHIPS through COMMON UNDERSTANDING!! Making a HWY. to Pave our Awareness and Artistic and Athletic ENDEAVORS!! It is where we all are going!

WHAT an AWESOME DESTINATION!! INDEED!
