    Finally our video link!

    Ok so I hope this link works...let me know if it does not and I will try another option.
    Do I need to send an email to someone at the office?

    Poor kid his new braces are giving him fits...he gets contact/friction hives and ever since he got them if he speaks for a long period as he goes along his mouth begins to welt and swell and makes it harder and harder for him to enunciate and it is also peak pollen season here...it is the the red zone this week and so our allergies are out of control he can hardly breath even with his meds...but whew we finally got though it! Not sure if anyone but us will understand him but still we said we would share!

    It took 4 attempts...the fancy camera we tried to use ended up causing extreme panic, performance anxiety muteness and weeping so he ended up borrowing his uncle's phone, locking himself in the church office and recording himself ...so not "professional" by any means but he is proud of it. His uncle posted it up on his unlisted channel for us to share.
    He only has been making eye contact briefly in the last year or so, you can see him turn away from the camera frequently...turns out the big camera was feeling very much like looking at a face for him
    .
    He definitely had a some wobbles and errors but I am super pleased he persevered and made his best effort!

    For all you moms with special needs kiddos that have not seen my million previous threads before ha, some back ground...my super sweet ASD son because of diagnosed Celiacs disease developed some serious growth delays and has been through 5+ years of speech...he started out being being able to articulate less than 40 percent of the sounds, 6 + of OT, in addition to 2 years of VT to combat a degenerating eye disorder, long term ongoing Urticaria/hiving that often has left him unable to see or hold things for weeks and months on end, and of course coping with all the anxiety and medications that go along with all those things... my point being the kid has had his challenges...and yet somehow we got here! This task that when we started MP 3 years ago seemed impossible task for some other child.

    But he set himself this task, has wept over it, been joyful and proud of it, taken comfort in its lessons, has grown and learned so much.

    So I urge you to remember on your very hardest days that good things can happen for your kids.

    anyhow here you go!

        Wow! He recites so nicely, with inflection and meaning. Well done.

        No need to submit a link elsewhere. This will suffice! The link worked perfectly. Many thanks to your videographer. May we share this? (First name only)

        And by the way, your son has a very charming way about him. His eyes smile and his intensity grows at just the right places.

        This is an aptly dramatic recitation. Perhaps a scene from Shakespeare is next??

        So happy for you both. Congratulations!

            Oh Thank you all!

            Yes Cheryl. Steven says you may share the link with his first name.
            Thank you for your kind words, he has been just shaking with nerves since I posted it last night. I will let him know he "passed" ha.

            We think he is very charming too, he has always had that twinkle and quirky smile in his eyes even when he was small and not interacting directly <3
            He has come a long long way from when he had no intonation and never paused for a breath, he worked hard this year on sllllooowwwing down.

            The MP poetry book and the poems integrated into the literature guides have always been a big hit here...we started with that before we go to the cores I believe.
            We listen to and read LOTS of poetry and I and one of his sister's are big Shakespeare nuts so he hears lots of Audible poetry and us reading aloud I think that rhythm you get hearing poetic language read aloud rubs off ha. It is such an exciting story too, lots of action and cliffhangers to get dramatic about! The way the work is set up to read a few verses then stop and talk about the story as you go along is really helpful.

            Whew what a project! I feel like he and I need to put up our feet and celebrate with lemonade and popcorn!

                Sorry for the delay! I've been on vacation and had no way to watch. This is an excellent performance, and we are excited to present the Horatius medal, pin, and Winston Churchill certificate to Steven. Also, we will add his performance to our Horatius page on the website. I am so glad he managed to get this recorded because it would be a shame to do all this work and not share it! Will you send me your shipping address and Steven's full name? (tanya@memoriapress.com)

                Bravo, Steven!

                  Oh thank you Tanya! I hope it was a wonderful vacation.
                  This will bring some smiles today as we have super sick in bed kids...you are not supposed to be sick like this in June but we always seem to manage it!
                  I will shoot you an email.
