You reading chapter books to her yet? If so, pick up When You Reach Me by Rebecca Stead. Wonderful! Such a great book to read aloud.

omg 4th?! She loves to read yes? I remember my 4th graders used to love me reading aloud to them. I have some favorites if you need suggestions. Sorry she's not excited. Maybe she will find a new best friend this year.

A couple I know is separating. He is looking for a 3 bedroom to rent "south of Northampton" in the "Springfield area". If you know of anything let me know and I will pass it along.

In the school year I teach only kids on the autism spectrum. All my students are severely autistic, most non-verbal, most with behavior challenges. During the summer I am the coordinate our developmental program for students who are the most severely disabled. These kids have cognitive and developmental delays, many in wheelchairs, many eat through feeding tubes, some on oxygen, many with seizure disorders. Very different, but some similarities.

I am looking forward to vacation. I need to find motivation to work on my house, as well as just relax. I am hoping the weather cooperates so I can get out and walk or ride my bike.

I thought you were looking forward to vacation.

Didn't realize you had different kids in the summer than you did during the school year.

Last day of the summer program for us. I will definitely miss the kids and staff. Since I don't work with this population during the school year, I don't get to see this group of people until the summer. I look forward to it every year.

I guess if you are not planning on serving a meal it is different. I also have to remember that 2:00 is an odd time so I should expect not to be eating a meal at that time. I will have to remember that for the future when I get invited there again.

I don't host parties except my daughter's birthday parties and yes I do some kind of munchies before the cake. I don't serve meals.

I know most of the birthday girl's friends had to leave at 8. I grew up in a house where we were the party-throwers. I just don't ever remember people not eating for hours. Do you do apps when you have a get together? I will have to remember for the next time there is a party there to either come later or eat before I go.

I saw your post on the Massachusetts team about that. I guess they figured it was an all day event and since it was for a 16 year old it probably went into the night as well.

I went to a party yesterday. I was shocked that the party started at 2, but they didn't serve food until after 5. I left at 6 without waiting for dessert. I was not up for an all day event. they did have munchies at 2, but all carbs and stuff I shouldn't, but did, eat.

It was nice to hear from him regardless. I think it must be hard for him being so far away from everyone. Most of our family is in Agawam or the surrounding areas. He has a brother in Florida as well. I suggested to him that we find some family willing to visit him. I would suspect if I brought it up to my daughter that she would be more than willing to volunteer.

Going to do some errands this morning and then heading to Providence tonight for an event.

Got to talk to my cousin in Australia this morning. He doesn't seem to remember the time difference I guess. I didn't mind being woken up by him though. He and I were very close growing up.

They found a substitute. We are covered for next week. Phew!

She is doing well in one specific area but she still needs help and I actually wish the summer session ran longer. It would be nice if there was something before school started so she had a jump start on the school year but I understand that the system is not set up that way.

You have a right to enforce the IEP as written. Therefore if they are not following what it says, they are essentially breaking the law. You have a right to "compensatory services" if they do not provide them! That means you can hire someone else and they would have to pay for it out of their budget. The law is on your side. If Abby is truly doing as well as they say on the progress report, I would expect they would amend the IEP to remove summer services. That must be done with your approval, usually with a meeting. Until then, they MUST provide them!

So what can I do? Aside from writing the teacher and the principal and offering to bring Abby in some other time? I feel like I'm stuck. I can't make a teacher teach.

In other news we finally got the June Progress Report in the mail and it was very positive. She is even ahead of grade level in one or two areas. :-)


I have another email ready to go but I am going to wait until later to send it. Abby and my husband are at the school right now getting Abby's lesson. I will wait to hear an update from Aaron before I send my email, and maybe on that one I will copy the district special ed person.

I copied the school principal on the email and she wrote back to me. She was unaware that the substitute had taken another job. I spoke to the school secretary yesterday morning too, and she was also unaware.

They were flexible in letting us do 8am sessions (their contract says they don't have to work before 9am) so I am just going to take the attitude that everyone is doing the best they can and I won't take it personally. IEPs can be modified I guess. I don't know.

My email to them was positive. "Thank you for being flexible... what can we do to help Abby get the services...." etc. So I am hoping that will bode well. Legal or not it's not like I can force a teacher to show up at school and teach my child. I think clueing in the principal was the right thing to do. I could clue in the district head of special ed but I don't think I need to take it that far.

My husband felt like he would be well enough to get Abby where she needs to be this morning so I came to work. Hopefully everything goes well for him. Maybe he will get an update.

That's awful! How can they just not cover her hours? If it is in an IEP it is illegal for them not to do it. Hopefully they fix this situation for the future.

Took Abby to her school this morning and the special ed teacher told me as I was leaving that the substitute that was supposed to cover next week got another job (in the school district) and can't cover Abby's lessons next week. So there is no one to do it now which means Abby is going to be shorted 4 hours. She's already been shorted 2 other days, plus a day that we missed because of our fault. What a waste! I am going to send an email and suggest that she get more help or something in the fall.

Glad to hear it is not Lyme or tick related!

I ended up hurting my shoulder. Saturday it was sore. Yesterday it was extremely painful. I can barely lift my arm. It is extremely frustrating! I don't know exactly what I did to it, but it is very painful. I almost went to the ER. Hopefully I can get in to a massage which should help.

Turns out not to be tick related after all.

What happened on Sunday that was bad? You said something on Facebook but I didn't catch it.

I had a student who had a tick-borne illness that wasn't Lyme. I hope he starts to feel better soon.

Doctor didn't get the lab results from the hospital. Thinks it is tick related, not viral. More tests. Won't get results now until Tuesday. At least he's probably not contagious. He is still sleeping a lot, mostly sitting up.

Did Lyme come back negative? I hate when it is a "virus" because that usually means they have no clue. He feeling any better today?

It's viral maybe. Not the flu though. They did a Lyme test at the hospital and a bunch of other tests.

Abby missed summer school today because we didn't get home until after 2am.

Day two of the summer program went okay. A few glitches, but not anything that couldn't be handled. I am not as tired today though thankfully.

Amherst ones were okay but we were so close that we got smoked!

Greenfield's were supposedly very good. They had hyped them a bit too.

How were they? I went to the Six Flags fireworks on the 3rd. They were pretty nice. I didn't go to the Springfield ones. I was tired and had stuff to do. It seems like they get shorter and shorter each year. I think they were only 15 minutes. I guess it is too costly to run longer shows now.

The rain here wasn't too bad. It rained a few hours and then was done before 7. I didn't make the fireworks yesterday. Today I am getting ready for going back to work tomorrow. My daughter and her boyfriend are coming over and having lunch. Then I will visit a student who had surgery. It should be a nice visit.

We took a chance and headed to the beach anyway. It paid off! The weather was beautiful in CT, the water was warm, and it was very relaxing. My friend took his kids. Apparently they had never been to the beach before. I left them for a while and just walked in the water. It felt good.

I have the washer and dryer being delivered today. I also have someone coming over to give me a quote on siding for the house, as well as to look at the deck and roof and give me some idea of their condition. I hope to get some flowers and veggies planted as well.

I imagine you had old machines. Are they going to haul them away for you?

Tomorrow. Tonight I will have to prep the bathroom for the new machines. I think I will have them come right through the front door, as opposed to the breezeway door we use as our main door. It should be interesting tonight getting it all ready.

Was supposed to go to the beach today.

Grill and mower are together and operable. I don't typically do it myself, but it felt good to get them done (with a little help).

I bought a fridge from Home Depot a few years ago. I considered them for these appliances as well.

Today I am going with my great niece to the park. I am looking forward to it. Today is also my daughter's birthday so I hope to take her to lunch. I have to work later. It is the first time I have worked in a few weeks.

Hope Abby's summer session starts off well.

We got a charcoal grill a couple of years ago and my husband never put it together because he got sick. It's still in pieces in my yard.

Home Depot and Sears compete with each other pretty heavily I think. We got great service at Home Depot. The nearest full Sears store to us is at the Ingleside Mall. Home Depot is much closer.

Abby starts her summer sessions tomorrow. It was supposed to be yesterday & today but the teacher couldn't do it and couldn't find a substitute.

I ended up at Sears. I bought them plus a gas grill, a lawnmower, and some storage cabinets for the garage. Delivery got messed up so I have to go back and pick up the grill and lawnmower today or wait to have them delivered on the 6th. I am working then so I can't.

I remember when my kids were little. I craved alone time and adult conversation. I used to work part time at night just to get out a bit when I was a stay at home mom. I also volunteered a lot of my time. The offset to my me time is that my house doesn't get clean. Next week I am off and I will work on some rooms.

Did I tell you I am going to buy my house and stay here?

Getting my hair colored and cut today, then off to the eye drs for an exam and new glasses. My truck us at the dealer to have heated seats installed, an inspection, and change over of my tires. They gave me a edge to drive as a rental. It's an interesting vehicle. Not sure I'd want one, but I'll enjoy driving it.
