My babies have had a wonderful first few days of school.
Kamden loves the independence Intermediate school offers. He found his classes like a champ, mastered the lockers, and is enjoying making new friends from other schools. He's pretty easy going and not much phases him. The only concern I have is his inability to keep a binder organized! Hopefully this year will be the year he gets it together! But I won't hold my breath!
Kendall held a crayon on her first day of school and colored with it. She's even been particular about which color she uses. Monday they talked about blue, and she would only color with the blue crayon! Tuesday she picked the pink crayon when asked what color a pig should be colored! They do a "Random act of kindness" award, and Kendall received the first one. When the teacher told me, I thought someone did something nice for Kendall...but that wasn't the case. SHE did something nice for someone else! A little boy was crying and Kendall reached out and gave him a comforting "pat." I love that she's showing compassion at three years old! Her brother was the exact same way at that age. I am so proud of her.
Things are going really well. My classes start this Thursday, so all of us will be back to the grind. I do better under pressure, so I'm ready.
Sadly, Kendall's Physical Therapist is quitting. I can't even begin to tell you how upset this makes me, but like everything else in life, we carry on! Today we have an appointment at the Cook's Therapy Center near our house for an evaluation. This therapist was our first PT when Kendall was five months old before we started doing home health. I think going to a center will be a nice change for Kendall too. They have new equipment and other things to offer her that we don't have at home. The fact that the new facility is within a mile of our house makes it nice too!
More busy days ahead, but everyone is healthy and happy, so we welcome them.
