One other thing to note, quickly. Today I used our outside time to break up a task that was causing anxiety for Simon, namely homework. He had more than usual today and I could tell as soon as he walked out of school that he was stressed about it. So I suggested that we get some homework done, take a break for our outside time, then finish the rest when we came back in. I thought it worked out well. Knowing he was going to get a break helped him power through the first leg, then having been outside in the fresh air helped him breeze through the remaining work once we got back inside. I'm going to have to remember this tactic in the future.
