So smart...

This morning Fletcher had his IEP (Individualized Education Program) evaluation. In the state of Oklahoma when special needs children turn three they become a part of the public school system. Fletcher will be under the care of Bethany schools. He will not actually go to that school because he has everything he needs at TCC. Anyhoo, I was with Fletcher during his evaluation and I was amazed at the things he could do! I go to school with him each day but I'm only there for the first half which is introductions and songs. Well, in the second half of class they are teaching my boy some stuff! Today Fletcher was able to pick a cat out of a field of three a cat, a duck and a car. Then they asked him to choose the duck and he did it! I was so proud! He's known his body parts for a long time but he can now show you the body parts of others! He was able to match a square with another square also out of a field of three a circle, square and triangle. He's also working on his colors! It was so encouraging to see how well he doing! Way to go, Fletcher!!!

This morning Maddie woke up with a temp of 100.9 and it's slowly gotten worse the highest being 103.1. It's now down to 101.2. Would you all please pray for her? I don't want her to miss her last week of kindergarten. And her birthday is Friday. I really don't want her to be sick on her birthday!!! She and I have been working so hard on her party for the last two weeks. Saturday she is going to have a mani/pedi party at our favorite nail salon. She has invited 5 of her friends and she's very excited! For the party favors we purchased silver flip flops and hot glued pink and silver hearts on them. She picked out two small bottles of nail polish for each of her guest. So, now I'm just trying to put it all together. Presentation is everything, you know! That's all for now I'll post after the party.

Isn't it amazing how some things that might seem small to others are such amazing milestones that bring such joy! I know when I hear Shelby say a word (very rare) it makes my day. Others look at me like I'm crazy, but it just thrills me to no end! I am so proud of Fletcher! Tell him to keep up the good work! By the way, I always knew he was a genious!

Wow, Denise, I am SOOO impressed with your invitations and the whole party thing. I would have killed to have a mani/pedi party when I was a kid. Way to go for thinking of such a fun, unique party, mom! I'm also very impressed about how much Fletcher knows. I'm so glad you had that encouragement and I hope Maddie feels better by Friday!

Be well, friend. Sniz
