A small victory
Jessica has autism. She hates the sea shore. I don't really know why. Maybe it's a fear of the ocean? Maybe it's the way the sand feels? I haven't been able to get her near the beach. But today the wind was calm. Juergen took Sarah and Nicole on a bike tour. Philip and Thomas helped me collect shells to put in my garden. I dragged Jessica out of the car and I made her sit on the shore for one hour. Afterwards she was proud of herself. I don't think she liked it, but she did it. The sea air and sunshine are very good for her. I'm very proud of Jess for having the courage to walk on the shore.
