It was IEP time today. Don't you love 'em???

I figured we would be discussing TC's progress....and his goals. I also figured we would be talking about possibly moving him next year to a new school. He will be a 5th grader...gasp!

One of his teachers brought several papers they are working on in her class. He is grasping his letters and sounds and can recognize several sight words. He also is able to recognize numbers up to 10 but is stumped after that saying that the number 13 is a 1 and a 3 but he isn't understanding it is the number 13. He can count to 50. He recognizes color words.

She held up a picture he drew. She said she told her students to draw themselves as a 90 year old. TC drew a man with a suit and tie and a tiny bit of hair....a cane and a lady friend/wife standing next to him holding his hand. Too cute! When the teacher asked the class what they would be doing when they turn 90, TC's answer was, "Having high blood pressure and a heart attack." LOL.
We have been talking a lot about being healthier, and my blood pressure has been a little high so that is where he got this from.

He gets speech three times a week and still struggles with conversation...not when you ask him a question but he doesn't initiate conversation too much. (Not like most 10 year olds do.) His enunciation has never been an issue.

He has one teacher, Ms. S who has him in her class about 3 hours a day including lunch. She is a mainstream teacher and I love love love her. Did I mention I adore and love her?? The last IEP I cried and so did she. And today she hugged me afterwards.

The diagnotician did let me know they are wanting to start him at a new campus next year with kids his age. He will be in resource math and reading and he will have an aide to go with him to science, lunch and social studies.

I am worried but I hope he will do good. *We still have til' August!*

Sing it

Tc missed the bus this morning. I was so mad! I have to get up at 5:15 to get him up in time to catch the bus and he was messing around, complaining and doing the usual and we missed the bus. Ugh.

I took him to school and his teacher told me something. She said that TC was on the computer singing away and all of the sudden she heard him sing, "What the hell".
She told him, "Tony we don't say that." And his response was, "I didn't say it, I sang it!"

He is too much!

Wolf boy

Tc has a new obsession with wolves. I am partly to blame for that! I mentioned a baby (kidding with him) and he said, "Can I have a pet?" And teasing with him, I said, "Yes you can get a wolf."

Now he always talks about wolves. We have to read a story about wolves from the books I ordered for him about animals every night. He talks about being a wolf....he was playing wolves at school and bit another child. Woops!

Late shift; hubs and TC

Since I am back working til 8 every night...hubs is on kid duty. He took TC out to shoot the bb gun day before yesterday. Yesterday they took out the telescope and looked at the moon. TC told me last night, "The moon has holes!"

At least they are getting some bonding time.
