Now that Kidlet has started Middle School he was given the opportunity to give up his Study Center class period to help in the special needs room. He has made some great friendships there and is amazing at working with kids who have Autism and other special needs. His sweet nature, patience, and understanding of the differences we all have make him a rather extraordinary person in my book. The teacher he works with told me he is just a natural and they love having him!
Main Compartment: Peanut butter puzzle piece sandwiches
Large Side Compartment: Grapes and a puzzle apple

Kidlet got these special bears at Build-A-Bear Workshop. A $1 donation to Autism Speaks is made for every bear purchased! He made the one on the left for himself and it is unbelievably soft! The bear on the right in the cutie shirt he made for the teacher he works with in the special ed room.
