Here are a few pictures I took the other day with my not so little guys running through the sprinklers. My youngest, Marcus, as I have already mentioned before has Sensory Processing Disorder, Autism, and Developmental Delays, he is just now starting to really like the water. As you can see from these pictures, he really likes the water. At one point, he even picked up the sprinkler head and started using it as a shower head of sorts - my oldest, Quintin, didn't like that at all.... Quintin always thinks he should be the one to think of all... Continue reading
