Today was a pretty good day. My kids were generally well behaved. I have a meeting with a grandparent who wanted to discuss his grandson's progress (he is the guardian). He came with a PLAN already to implement with the speech teacher and me. It was a GREAT plan and I really am glad he made the suggestions he did. My new student came today for an hour and did okay but he is going to be challenging - in addition to everything else, he has STICKY FINGERS.
On my personal front, I have been doing fabulously and tonight at the end of the day, fully dressed (no shoes though) I weighed the same I weighed last week in the morning undressed. Clothes are usually 3-5 pounds. I am really feeling better. I also have noticed that my belly is shrinking - not sagging fat at this time so maybe going SLOWLY is allowing my skin to shrink as I go along. Dunno, but I might hit a new milestone by March 1 when I COUNT my weight - only need to go down a little.
My kids are doing so much more with my SMARTBOARD and I love using it. They really like when the aides and/or other adults compete with them in some of the games. All we use are learning games but the KIDS think they are JUST GAMES. Even my most challenging students get involved. The grandfather is planning to BUY the residential facility a SMARTBOARD so his grandson can practice and play with it at the home as well as at school. These things cost THOUSANDS of dollars and the grandfather is prepared to get it so his grandson can all of the opportunities possible. I really like this. He bought him an Ipad and IF he starts to use it effectively, granddad will get one for school too.
I said this would be short - but I lied.
Everyone have a great night and a better day tomorrow.
