What a whirlwind of activity this week has been! It started off rather awesomely with me being the SITS Featured Blogger! If you don't know what that is, see the Secret is in the Sauce button on my sidebar. FABULOUS group! Tuesday I had Tucker's IEP. It went really well in my opinion and we are coming up with some good strategies to help him make the most of his schooling. He tends to be a very hands on kid so sitting still, at a desk, and learning quitely is somewhat difficult for him. On Wednesday I had Jake's IEP. That went REALLY well! Jake is ready to transition back to regular public ed school! He will be starting at the local middle school on DECEMBER 1ST! WOW! He will have 2 periods there to start and we will gradually add more, extending his day at public ed while decreasing his day at his Special Day Treatment facility. He got glowing reviews from his teachers and therapists and the director actually got a bit choked up just thinking about Jake leaving them. It was really cool. He is a SO happy. We celebrated last night with grape cider and watched Iron Man. It was fun. Today I had the last of the school meetings (YEAH!) Tanner is doing really well for the most part. He too is the kind of boy who just can't sit still though so that is a struggle for him. I don't know if I mentioned before that I am having him tested for ADHD. I'm pretty sure he qualifies. If you've ever seen Dennis the Menace, you know my son Tanner! Tonight Jon has his ceremony for Brownsea (boy scouts) He did the leadership training over the summer and he is getting some extra recognition for completing additional tasks on his own. I'm very proud of him! I just wish he would act more like a good role model at home with his brothers! Don't get me wrong, he's a great kid and we have a really good relationship....he just tends to be short tempered with brothers and Dad. Could be a teenage thing but I'm not crazy about it. Tomorrow, Tucker and Tanner have no school so we're going to go see Bolt. They're pretty excited about that and honestly, the big guys couldn't care less if they miss it. Next week, poor Jake has school M-W but the others are all off.
How about you? Do your kids have school next week? Are you doing parent teacher conferences yet? Does it feel like Christmas is right around the corner? Are you AT ALL prepared for the holiday season?
