daffodils? ok, it might not be as perfect as all that, but there is some good stuff going on.
the squirm got accepted to the capitol school! not for kindergarten like we hoped, but for a half day program that focuses on intensive catching up and small ratios. there are three boys in the class and two adults. i am bummed that he needs to play catch up (bummed but not totally surprised), but glad that he has this amazing opportunity to be in a better situation for learning and growth. he starts the monday after spring break, so he got sprung early from his non-preferred old school and ran errands with my mom and i yesterday.
we toured the william’s community school last week with mr p’s parents and really liked it. i turned in applications there this past week (definitely for the squirt and maybe even for the squirm if things don’t work out at the capitol school. with spring break starting today, i am sure we won’t hear anything from this this week, but my fingers and toes are crossed that they might have an opening open up this semester, and if not they might have a couple of openings in their summer program. mr p and i both really liked the director and she did an excellent job allaying our anxieties about aba therapies. i hope we get a chance to get more involved with her and with the school.
but, until that happens, i’ll be putting my little squirt on the school bus here in the mornings, before driving the squirm to austin. the half day thing works out pretty well right now, because it gets us back to austin around 2:00 and we can pick up the squirt and head home!
