I am absolutely amazed by how awesome
World Autism Day turned out.
So, besides the message here, I texted my family and a small handful of my friends. Well, Ms. Amy Gardner forwarded that text to just about the whole church! I could not believe all of the people who told me that they were wearing blue for Tyler.
One of the most overwhelming things was getting to work at Glendale Christian Academy Thursday morning to find that Every.Single.Teacher was wearing blue. I cannot express how loved and supported that made me feel. Even the principal had pinned a blue ribbon to his shirt.
Later I heard that the students were asking why everyone was wearing blue, and when they heard they said that next year, they all want to wear blue (of course, uniforms are blue already, lol)
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the outpouring of support.
Here are the pictures that I received:

p.s. Down Syndrome day is March 21. Colors are blue and yellow. Next year!
