I have to take a minute and brag about Zoe, first. She got her progress report today - which is the 1/2 way mark to her 1st report card. She has 5 A's, and 1 B!! I'm SO proud of her. Grades like that after a move like we've done recently, staying with family, her sleeping on the floor in a sleeping bag for 2 months, and dealing with her little brothers in the same room! I think we can all learn from her.

Holden started school this week. Today was his 3rd day. He's been placed in a "Communication Skills" classroom with other kids with autism. There are 5 kids in the class, 1 teacher who is a behavior analyst, and 2 aides. Holden is the youngest kid in there, as they can range from pre-school up to 5th grade. Today when I picked him up she called him her "miracle" 3 year old. She said in 7 years, she's not seen a 3 year old do this well the 1st week. This is what his report for today said: Holden put large and small pegs in a pedboard, copied actions on the Wiggles video & ate 2 helpings of turkey breast at lunch. I can't really explain how good it feels to read something so .... normal.
