School Days

Well, I haven’t posted since Joe has had a couple of full days under his belt. Last Wed. was his first “long day.” He went from 8:30-2:30; he didn’t really eat his lunch, but that’s okay…he’s got to learn he has choices and if he chooses not to eat his lunch or the snack the teacher gives (they aren’t organic animal crackers ;-)) then, he’ll be hungry. On Wed, he came home and said that another little boy had to go to time out. Yesterday, he came home and said that a.) he had to go to time out for yelling at his teacher (she was making a loud ahhh sound.) He was disappointed because they are STILL working on the letter “A”. And b.) Miss Brittany told him that he would have to go talk to Miss Jant (the director of the school) if he wasn’t quite and still during nap time. He doesn’t take a nap and wont take a nap! At any rate, I talked to him briefly about these things. My dad, wisely, told me not to worry about it too much. That the teacher could/would handle it and that if she needs my help, she’ll ask for it. I just don’t want my future president of the world to get everyone in trouble because he has an idea of how to do it better! They also went to chapel on Monday; that was a first for Joe. I asked him what story they talked about and he said he didn’t know, but he didn’t understand why they didn’t want to sing “the all night long song.” (That’s a Rascal Flats song from his CARS movie. Anyway, he certainly has an idea about how things should be. On our two school days I have noticed a bit more controlling behavior when we get home, but our Occupational Therapist and Speech Pathologist said this would happen…we might regress before we get the hang of school. Other than our minor incidents at school, he seems to be enjoying it. He told me he made a brand new friend but that he couldn’t remember his name.
Hope you are all well!
Continue to keep Brian’s cousin Scott in your prayers as I think he’s due to start chemo for bladder cancer soon. Also, please add my cousin’s wife Kathy to your prayer list as she is 30 years old and battling breast cancer.
Much love,
K & co
