I love it when I'm right!
Using these adorable images very simply, in a classic layout, has been totally fun. In this case, I used a sentiment from PTI's Scattered Showers. This is going in my DH's lunch box next week 'cause we've had a lot of precipitation and very little shine in Ohio lately, and it's getting him down. Poor triathlete!
Many thanks to all who left comments on my last post. It's been so uplifting to read all the many different things that have made you happy this past week, from the small stuff (tomatoes ripening, phone calls, serendipitious finds, great haircuts, sunshine) to big stuff (safe travels, health successes, hope, family closeness). If you haven't read all the comments, I highly recommend it. What a positive way to go into the weekend!
Personal stuff, if you're interested....I have another huge happiness to add after yesterday. My son Jack was diagnosed with atypical autism 3.5 years ago. Since then, he has received speech, physical, and occupational therapy and special education services throught the schools. A week ago, his private PT told me she will probably discontinue PT services for him in March after his re-eval because his coordination and strength have reached age-appropriate levels. Tuesday, his speech therapist told me he has made huge progress (I already knew this, but it was cool to have it confirmed by a professional!)
Yesterday, the OT told me she thinks Jack can drop down to every other week sessions because of his progress. Last summer, at his OT re-eval, he tested almost four years delayed (he's only 7) in some areas of fine motor control and overall about two years delayed. I expected weekly OT to continue for YEARS!
AND, his autism teacher told me yesterday that he now knows all the Dolch sight words for all of first grade. Jack is in first grade, folks. Last year, his kindergarten intervention specialist acted like he would never read and set his sight-word goals really low for first grade. I can't tell you how happy I am that he is proving her wrong! Doin' the happy dance!
