Feed Their Passions

One of the characteristics of Aspies is that they tend to become focused on one interest at a time. RoboBoy tends to focus on 2-3 interests at a time. Right now one of RoboBoy’s passions is origami. That is also the beauty of homeschooling. We are able to feed the passions of our children. This allows them to grow and become the unique people that God designed them to be.

We discovered that our local library was hosting a free origami workshop. RoboBoy was practically vibrating with excitement! We learned to make butterfly balls which you see in the photo above. The neat thing about these is that when you throw them in the air and smack them, they come apart and all the pieces come fluttering down like butterfly wings. Very cool! Even more cool? We found out that our library hosts an origami workshop once a month.

I encourage you to check your local library. It’s quite likely that they have similar workshops. If they don’t then you can suggest that they start some.
