  3. 3. Hi there, That’s me. Natalie. As you can see, some days are better than others. I really appreciate you coming to check out my thoughts. It’s nice to be out from behind what I like to call “a fog within…” I call it that because sometimes it just comes over me like the fog rolling in from San Francisco Bay. I can’t control it, but sometimes I can see it coming (which is so frustrating). My family members are really great, but we all get irritated by the effects of the autism. Because of it, I don’t get to relate to people in the way that I’d like. But that doesn’t stop everyone. I have some really great friends: Moose, Theresa, and 105 are some of my favorite people. I have a few hobbies: I’m a whiz at math, I love to look through the indexes of books (its so calming), and I have a button collection that you wouldn’t believe! Plus, I like to tell jokes (I even made up one of my own). So, take a moment and come over to my side of the Bay. Come on. Just turn the page…

I think it might get to Natalie’s poetry. help you to get to know me a little bit if you take a look at my page 1. Go to MySpace.com and (although I still think that iGoogle then search for Natalie rules). Don’t forget to take a look Flanagan or buttongirl16 at my poetry (in the blog section)! I 2. Or take the easy way in really enjoy writing. It’s not quite and click on this link. as soothing as reading indexes, but it still works for me. ~Natalie a fog from within…
  6. 6. Third Stop: The Letter That Changed Everything This whole process really was a shock for me and my family. It was hard on all of us. Once I finally received an evaluation, there were so many questions that I had, but I really didn’t know how to go about asking them. I wasn’t entirely sure what was going on there. But my parents really showed their love and support – that made all the difference. ~Natalie a fog from within…
  7. 7. Fourth Stop: Mrs. Kelly’s Reflections The podcasts to the left are a reflection of the It’s funny how adults always book and how Mrs. Kelly get to know more things would have responded about what’s going on then within the story. what kids do. These podcasts are about me and I don’t even get to listen to This second set of them. Totally unfair. I podcasts would be a guess that’s just one of the better reflection of what perks of growing up. Mrs. Kelly as a first year teacher would experience. ~Natalie a fog from within…
