Keep Your Eyes Ahead

...is not just the name of the great Helio Sequence LP that I got for my birthday (Thanks Mom and Dad)...it's also quite fitting for this post...

About 2 years ago my daughter was diagnosed as having Autism.

I can't even describe how that felt. We knew it was true - but when a medical professional looks you in the eye tot tell you, that's a whole other matter.

We live in a smallish Texas town - one that relies on the ISD for the education of the community's special needs kids. They do the best they can - and in many cases they exceed expectations. But some kids fall through the cracks - and I wasn't about to let that happen to my child.

Over the last few months I have been hard at work to establish an Autism-only private school here in our community.

Tonight I can report to you that we will be open for classes this Fall.

I should be shot at sunrise if I were to imply that I had somehow done this all on my own. So many have helped out - either with their prayers, thoughts, services or time. Because we make every attempt to maintain privacy - I wish I could name them for you.

Tonight I also spoke with a DiscoTech! contributor, Bob Knight's Eyebrows who has graciously accepted the reins of this blog. I may still drop in a post now and then, but there's just no way I can attempt to keep up with the college football season like I did this past year and simultaneously open a brand new school. (Have I mentioned that I've never opened a school before?)

Thanks to all the readers who have complimented my posts. We do it for free - we do it because we love to Talk about Tech, Lubbock and the great State of Texas.

Bye for now...
