My boys were done with school today at 1025. Our schools only do half day kindergarten and prek. I woke this morning and realized that my oldest would be a first grader come September is he really old enough for that? I am beginning to think not. I am breaking this post up as it has a few different topics. That i have been meaning to write on and just have had the heart to.
Blake this past school year went into to school with 2 site words at 2nd he knew 4 of 28 site words. Now he knows 17. This is huge for him as he see things like a mirror. We are still working on it. I am hoping that we can continue that. We are working on number recognition and still having some trouble with lower level. He is coming out of his self conscious shell. Which is huge for him. He is doing fantastic with his ot,pt and slt. Ot sent home a fantastic book full of stuff for Blake to do. I am so excited for it. I was really wondering if he was going to be ok. Mrs Pepin and Mrs k sent home addresses for the kids to write them over the summer so this will be good for Blake to practice his writing skills.
Nathan is Nathan. Giving a run for his money. He is very cute and cuddly in class. we are hoping he will get some more of the academic stuff. He is very willing at times to do what the school wants him to do and other times he is not so much. He is just a 4 year old active boy.
Nathan at 18 months old did a sleep study and 2 others were repeated at children’s hospital. He was dx as an insomniac. Has been on meds since that point. We changed meds about 7 weeks ago when they weren’t working any longer. We went to his four year check up and his heart now has a mummer. We go July 7th for an echo and ekg. I am sure it is nothing. I am just worried with all the heart stuff I have seen going on lately. We have taken him off his sleep meds which has been a Nightmare. We aren’t getting to bed before midnight. I am not happy about that. I know we don’t want anything clouding if something is there.
We do have a course of treatment for him once Dr says what is going on. I am so sleepy. He is more cranky since having no meds in his body. I am hoping I can run him enough that school is out and let him go so he will sleep at night. I have some programs with the library that we are going to attend. They are goind to do the letter boxing, french and rainforst station.
For those of you asking YES we are truly moving come October. Paul has been actively searching NC and VA for jobs. We are wanting desperately to be out of this state. Will we know anyone? No I have a few people online we talk to occasionally. Spoiled mommy has been a big help. Michelle has answered some questions too. I have cousins in South Carolina. I have an Aunt in Norwood NC.
Why are we doing this? CT economy sucks. My husband spends more in gas than he makes. We have been trying since December to find a different job in this state. It just doesn’t happen. CT doesn’t have anything but high unemployment rates and high taxes and utility cost. Will I come back to CT to visit of course. To live never. This state doesn’t help the families who need it and it doesn’t do anything to cut cost. Our taxes just go further and further up. Yet they don’t put the money into special education. Those children are lacking services. It doesn’t go for road repair as i know several spots in town with huge pot holes. I am tired of everyone wanting to keep up with Jones.That is what Happens in small towns. We also have the issue of his mother who is more and more unstable. She is just a whack job.
What we are gaining by leaving. New experiences, quiet existence without the drama of his mom. We will be a black hole to her. She will not know where to find us.
We will miss our family and friends. We are welcoming the oppertunity to meet new people and do new things. I am starting Joyce Meyers dealing with change. I am looking foward to finding a congragation down there that we feel comfortable. I enjoying my slow walk back to my faith and finding and discovering with who I am adn what my relationship with god looks like.
This promises to be a good thing for us. Not only that we shall get a puppy. The boys couldnt be more excited about that. Not sure how the girls will do with the dog. Can guinea pigs have heart attacks lol.
I am feeling good about this. Stressed and waiting for a shoe to drop. I am ok with what happens next. Cant be any worse than what we are dealing with now.
