Yo Gabs

Monkey slipper socks from Mim

Nora LOVED Yo Gabba Gabba. We had kinda crappy seats but she still danced and wiggled and clapped and sang her little heart out. I think her fave was when they dropped a million balloons from the ceiling and we went and got one. She still has it. She pretends it is a baby and rocks it or has it talk to her (it has a face on it). She is so stinkin' cute.

We have to start looking for kindergarten classes for her. Yow. I am not looking forward to it. The EEU has a K that she may be able to get into but there are limited spots. The Seattle spec. ed. has started integrating all the sp. ed. kids into their home school regular classes with resource room pull outs. Umm yeah, don't think that will work for her. They also have self contained classrooms dispersed throughout the district. It is so hard to know what will be the best place for Nora. I want her to be in pre school at the EEU forever or stay there until graduation.

Alex has been gone since Friday and comes back Sun. Actually hasn't been that bad b/c we've been super busy and Grandma has been helping out every day!

Then on Monday Mim and Grandfather come for Thanksgiving!!! hooray!!!

We can't wait.

Hope you all have a fab turkey day.

Sophie's Story by Elaine said...

The home school with resource room...that is what I am hoping for Sophie. We had our first meeting where I had to sign the papers to get things started. It is stressful to think about...isn't it??? Ugh!!!

Either way, Sophie will be assigned to one of the local elementary schools. It is just that in our district, each elementary school specializes in a certain area. Like one might specialize in autism. So all the kids dx with autism will go to that elementary school. But I want Sophie to go to our home school. I just think it would be difficult (for me anyway) to have Sophie go to a different school than Elsa and Charlie. I think the minimum amount of time they spend in the typical classroom is for "specials" such as art, PE, music. And depending on their need they may or may not spend more time in the typical classroom.
