They're happy in OH vit. Most days I wish I could be a turtle - just pick up my house and move somewhere else until I tired of it, then move on again. Himself hates to move, so this next one might be our last until we leave the next place feet first. Gotta make it a good one - and I SO miss the kids. So it will probably be OH.

My dream is to eventually sell my home, buy a modest RV and travel the US and Canada.

So much road, so little time. :(

It's a very eye opening book PF. I read it shortly after my niece was diagnosed with Asperger's.

My nephew had Asperger's, I was the one who led folks in the right direction from a Psych chapter in nursing school. Unfortunately we were too late to make his childhood easier. We found the book at Costco, a lady saw Shrek looking at it and told us how much it meant to her and how good it was. If Shrek had put it back I would have put it in the cart. He's been asking me some very insightful questions about my nephew just from reading the book.

I want to read this. I work with a lot of kids on the spectrum, and it seems like we are seeing more every year.

Thanks for the tip! The Kindle version is more than the paperback!

Shrek says Robison wrote another book that's a "How to" for Aspergians written by a person with Asperger's.
