How to clean your diffuser

At the beginning of each month I gather all the diffusers in my home and clean them.  Throughout the month I empty and wipe out the inside, but at the beginning I give them a good cleaning.  This not only keeps the diffuser working excellent, but eliminates the smell of all the oils I used during the month.  And I start with a fresh diffuser and love to change my oils for each season.  

To clean your diffuser (start with it empty):

1. Fill your diffuser half way with clean water.

2. Add 10 drops of white vinegar.

3,  Run the diffuser for 5 minutes to clean it.

4.  Empty the diffuser.

5. Use a cotton swab to finish cleaning the inside.

6. Rinse out the diffuser.  

7.  Use a dry cloth to wipe the diffuser.

Now you can add water, your favorite oils, and enjoy!

I hope you all enjoy your day and oils!  

I LOVE Doterra oils and use them everyday for everything.

They help with all my families needs and make our home smell beautiful.

Please let me know if you have any questions and have a blessed day.


My son's 8th grade project - making videos for youtube

I homeschool my son, who's autistic and in eighth grade.  He is making videos to put on youtube for one of his classes.  He didn't talk a lot until I believe he was 7, and had limited talking while attending public school.  He went to public school pre k through half of second grade.  And that's when I started homeschooling him and he loves it and has grown so much.  

I am so proud of him and how far he's come with his communication and social skills.

His videos are just amazing to me.  

I extremely enjoy watching them and sharing them.

He has a wonderful personality that everyone loves.

He'd love for you to follow him on youtube and he will follow you back.

His channel is family friendly.

His channel name is - superfalcon 550

you can click on the link below to get there.

Thank you so much to anyone who follows him.   He is just so excited to get new followers and see his subscriber numbers grow.

Wishing you nothing but the best!!

Autism and Adam

As April is quickly approaching I sit here thinking of my son and how amazing he is.... funny, great personality, smart, loves electronics, extremely good at legos and putting anything together, and he has autism.  

April is autism awareness month, I actually live it 24/7.  I continually learn about him and autism every day.   I'm proud of how far he's come since that little boy, who couldn't speak and had meltdowns as a way to communicate and release stress.  We work daily on communication and life skills.  I remember sitting for hours playing what I called the one item said three ways.   I'd hold or point to an item and say it three something about it three ways and then have him repeat the word.

Example:  a yellow ball

I'd say this is a ball, this is a yellow ball, this ball is round, say ball

and most of the time I could get him to say the word

I'd write each word he'd say down each day.  I have pages of hundreds of words and a few tears on them.

Some of my family would come over and play the game with him.  It got so everyone was talking this way in our home.  It helped so much and Adam slowly began talking more and more.  I'd just sit and talk and talk to him for no rhyme or reason just for him to hear me talk.  I'd sit and read for hours or play movies of books on the TV.  He started repeating the entire book word for word.  This is when we learned he had echolalia.  

He talks nonstop now and I LOVE it!!  I love talking with him and hearing him tell me stories and just communicating.   He loves talking about animals, science, history, and telling about all the books he loves reading.  He is a huge book lover.  He has eight book shelves plum full of books and still can find more books he needs.

I honestly believe homeschooling was the best thing I've done for him.  He didn't start talking until we began homeschooling and he's grown so much.  He LOVES homeschooling and tells me how thankful he is we school together.  That we take time to really go over the subject and we're able to pick subjects he wants to learn about each year.

I'm so thankful for my little boy, he's love, and everything he's taught me.

It you get the opportunity to spread awareness and teach others about how amazing kids with autism are, please do!!  AWARENESS is extremely important and so easy to do.

Thank you for taking the time to read my thoughts on my favorite little guy.
