We had a horrible year at school with a teacher who completely did not get my son and really managed to destroy his self-image. Recently we went to a bbq and ran into an art instructor he had two years ago at an arts/science summer camp. She immediately asked me if my son was with me and went on to tell me what a neat amazing kid he is and how she loved the way his mind works. She even starting telling another person nearby about him. My son went right over and they exclaimed over each other and reminisced about how much fun they had that year.

Ahhhhhhhhh both DS and I needed that. :-)
