I'm still alive. School is kicking my butt. It's not that it is hard really. It's just that I've become a perfectionist in my 30's. I definitely was not that in my late teens/early 20's the first time around in college!
All of the information on "exceptional learners" is really hitting home. I've learned more than I ever wanted to about IEP's and inclusion...at a very opportune time! Some days my head is spinning as I think about the ginormous journey we have ahead of us with Kendall's education. But most of the time, I catch myself thinking how other people (people who don't have the time or money to learn all the in's and out's of special education) do it. There is just so much to learn.
And it breaks my heart how many people there are out there that just trust their early intervention programs and school districts to guide them in the right direction. We have been very, very lucky with a great birth to three team, and hope to have the same continued success in the public school district, but unfortunately Texas is in a budget crisis right now and everything seems to be up in the air. That whole thing makes my head spin too!
So, I am alive...I've just been busy with school and life. (which leaves little time to blog about it!)
Kendall's had a runny nose and cough. Her lungs sound clear today, but if it continues past tomorrow I plan to take her back in to the Dr.
