7 months later
So much has happened since last June. We moved towns, we were not happy with the schools our children attended. Our daughter had the hardest 5th grade year with a teacher who thought bullying her into paying attention was how to get her to focus. It left her completed ashamed, scared and there were days she told us she didn't want to go to school anymore. She had even gone as far as writing a note to a friend about how she was alone. Even after confronting her teacher and her teacher telling us it wasn't right cause she too was the type of student like Hannah who would get very embarrassed of not knowing an answer. It didn't matter, she kept doing it and my daughter ended 5th grade on a miserable note. We have since moved to a much better school district. And to our surprise our 3 year old got to start pre k early! He is delayed in speech but the other district had offered him one hour on Fridays to come in for speech therapy. When we moved to our new town, this district said the best thing for speech delayed children is to throw them into a classroom with their peers. He's been doing GREAT! We still have some trouble understanding him but he's really coming along! He loves going to school and it's really given him the routine that he's needed. Our 7 year old loves his new school, the great thing about it is....although he is one of the top students in his class he is not as advanced as the last school said. Which means at this school he's actually being treated as part of the class, the last school would put him and another boy in their own group alone and they were both miserably bored. All in all, our move has been successful!
I also finished another semester of college with a 3.8 gpa! I begin another semester in just a few days but I'm extremely nervous. I haven't taken chemistry since high school and I was a miserable chemistry student. Ahh well right! Okay so that's my quick update. Onto blogging!
