We can't have video games because Chaz can't handle them. Awhile back we had a Wii system and a Gamecube. We even had an Xbox at one point. Chaz would get so obsessed by it that he could hardly function. He had no interest in eating, couldn't sleep because all he could think about was how his game day when and how it might go tomorrow, and he would pace the floor if we took away games for a few hours. He didn't want to go anywhere, do anything. It was so sad. Finally, after talking to my pastor, we decided that it was best to take the games out of the house completely and make it for special occasions. So now, we go to places that have games maybe twice a month. Well, they make it a guy night and they have a blast.

Meet Virginia, I posted about a skating party we went to. Melanie, Dexter's mom, called me to tell me about the party. We were talking about schooling and she just happens to tell me that Dexter is Aspergers. "He's what?" She said it again. "You're kidding me!" So Dexter and Chaz (Chaz is in the black shirt, blonde hair in pic) found each other. I couldn't believe it. I'm still amazed. They go to a school once a week for homeschool. We both homeschool them for the same reasons. Too much trouble in school. It's hard to find teachers who will work with them. Not against them and always punishing them. We met at the skating rink and I got to talk to Melanie some more. Awesome! What are the chances our two boys became good friends at school and are both Aspergers? Now they can annoy each other to death and they'll both love it. LOL! Chaz's brothers don't put up with it but Dexter does and vice versa. I'm sure they'd both have fun poking at each other and thinking it's hilariously funny. :D
