He turns away from the sunlight. It's bright... it's soo white. His eyes crease, his nose crinkles and his big brown eyes become little slits on a chubby looking face. He looks down, seeks the shade and seeks shelter from the wind behind me. But his isn't a bleak desert or an isolated part of the 'mid-west', this is simply our son David, at the beach.

Last week saw the closing ceremony for the Olympics Games 2016 in Rio. I've been glued to parts of the games, commiserated, applauded and stayed up too late to watch finals. And I'm not the only one.

Our stay at Thorpe Forest was wonderful. A true break away that left us relaxed and ready for.. well the rest of the summer holidays. One of the activities we took part in was cycling through the forest and it was a lovely activity that we did everyday.

Despite being summer, we've quite had a few bright but blustery days. There's been periods of grey skies, and at night there have been some high winds. As I'm stood watching the sky turn grey over the playground, it is slowly emptying. We often go later in the day when it's a bit quieter but we are soon the only family there.

Helping kids understand or engage with sports events can sometimes be a challenge whether they have autism or not. As the Olympic Games start why not engage them with medals, everyone likes to be a winner. This medal making activity that we did at Me Too & Co and for Sports Day this year has some great ways for developing motor skills and can celebrate whatever you like! Jane was being Adam Peaty just this morning "I won, I won, I won."

I had no idea when I woke up this morning that today is 'Play Day 2016'. A tweet from Scope that highlighted inclusive play caught my eye and I discovered a day to highlight for my wonderful Wednesday share.
