There wasn't much time to scrap the last couple of days. I made one layout though. It's a challenge for The Dutch Dares. You have to make a layout about something what your country has achieved that your proud of.
The Dutch social services is still one of the best and having a son with autism I'm really proud of the PGB, this is a personal budget provided by social services (health insurance). The past years I got a considerable amount of money so that I was able to pay my son's homeschool teachers, therapists etc..
On the pictures you can see Zander and me in the middle and around us are pictures of Zander and his teachers and companions.
Maybe you wonder why I doodled some bees on this layout. Bees look nice but they can't be trusted. They give us honey but they can also hurt you. The last couple of years a lot is changing in the Netherlands and life is getting more and more expensive and the government is cutting out a lot of benefits. In the past it was allowed to pay Dolphintherapy and Neurofeedback with the PGB. Last year they made that impossible. I don't understand why because these therapies can really help kids with autism and it's much better than all the farmaceutical drugs!
So I'm glad and proud of the existance of the PGB but it has it's stings!
