I have been so busy that I totally forgot to post about our visit to MJ’s new high school! About two weeks ago, Hubby and I went to visit Mj’s high school. The school is huge and has over 2,700 students! As soon as we went into the front office we were greeted by the ESE specialist. I found it so funny that the first thing she mentioned was how safe the kids would be and how they were supervised everywhere they went. She seemed to already know that that is what we were most interested in! She went through explaining the morning drop off and told us that the official tour would start in a few minutes. During the tour, all of the parents and our kids, were able to visit three classrooms and meet all three ESE teachers as well as one of the teacher assistants. We also met one of the speech teachers who seemed to be really warm and friendly. MJ was so happy to see several of his friends from the middle school who had moved on to high school the last two years. MJ commented about how big the school was and I could see that he became more comfortable after seeing familiar faces. The entire visit really has relaxed me a bit as well (Hubby is never worried). MJ has done so well in middle school and though I’m still a bit nervous, I’m also excited to see what the future holds.
Other than the above surprise from MJ, my daughter wanted me to ” make an appointment” with her for a foot massage and gave me a VIP sticker to wear for the day. These little things mean so much to me. I hope everyone has a wonderful Mother’s Day 💕.
While having bible study with my daughter, MJ came in the room and said, “Mommy, what are you doing?” I told him we were learning about Jesus and asked him to stay for a few minutes. To my surprise he stayed and watched the animated bible story and actually paid attention the entire time! Mind. Blown! Now, I’m not sure how much of it he understood but this just may be the start of something wonderful.
