unexcused absences

School Photo Shoot 271

photo by brandi field

i hope you will all forgive my extended on-line absence. i have been struggling quite a bit with my mental health, and one of these days i will write you all a long post about having a nervous breakdown, but i have to gird myself to face that first.

the squirt is actually doing really great, despite what this photo might imply.  i was more trying to illustrate how i have been feeling.  he is making great progress at william’s community school.  they tell me he is flying through his goals.  we have definitely seen more spoken words at home.  he still doesn’t like it when i show up at school at an unscheduled time.  next year i will have to hide when his turn for school pictures comes around.

the squirm is also off to a wonderful start.  he had no problems at all the first week of school, and his new teacher was really pleased and impressed.  cross your fingers for a super successful year!

    Not yay for what you have been going through. Take your time and we’ll be here when you are ready to share (whatever you choose to). ((hugs)) and you can always “bother” me if you need to…I welcome interruptions from friends ❤
