There is nothing as beautiful as seeing your children happy, excited and proud of themselves.
I have been fortunate enough to witness this in both my children over the last 24 hours.
Tom went up on stage at assembly yesterday to receive his "energy ranger" badge for his class.
I will always remember him seeing me, while still on stage.
He pointed to the badge and gave me a thumbs up with a big smile !!
Amelia arrived at special school today and was bouncing with excitement.
She will be using a motorised wheelchair for the first time.
The school owns 4 and Amelia gets to try one out today.
Our decision on Amelia's schooling was led by Amelia herself.
She will attend special school on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
She will attend mainstream school on Thursdays and Fridays.
If she is too tired on ANY of those days I will be keeping her home with me.
We are all very happy with this final decision and are eager to see how it goes.
I am very busy preparing to go away so I will speak about Amelia's Project Meeting and our night on August 4th 2012 next week.
I would like to leave you with something Tom apparently said in class yesterday.
(For Tom's personality please imagine "matter of fact", sighing and arm gestures).
While Tom's teacher was trying to gain the children's attention in class Tom apparently said.......
"Why be a prep teacher?
The other grades would be better.
You can't get anyone to listen in prep."
