Yesterday I finally got a hold of the head of the special ed department for the school Ryan will be going to next year.
Rusty and I had sat down and made out a list of questions. To my great surprise this teacher answered all of the questions the way we were hoping he would. Not only that Ryan had been recommended for a new program that they are starting next year!
The new class is called "life skills". The high school already has this class, and now they are starting it in junior high. The children in this class do not take "normal" classes. There will be no history or science. They only focus on stuff that will actually help them. Such things as learning how to count money, how to take the bus, how to wash laundry.
I am just so happy that Ryan will finally be able to get an education that will actually make a difference in his life.
Right now I have the house to myself, however everyone will be back tomorrow! So that gives me today to regain what might be left of my sanity.
I do have a lot of little things that need to be done today, so I will just continue to do everything one thing at a time.
Jake called yesterday to tell us that Nikki was going over to her new friends house. UMM O.K.? you guys are in Oregon! Why are you calling me to tell me all of this?
Ambers boyfriend Sam got accepted into the fire academy and he has a fire station that is sponsoring him. So now all of his weekend will be spent volunteering as a fire fighter. I am so happy for Sam. The only thing that I do not like is that the fire station that is sponsoring him is the one up in the mountain, which means if the mountain goes up then he will be fighting that fire.
Rusty has some very busy weeks ahead of him. He told me last night that he will be working late for the next two weeks and today he went in early. I so wish I could help him out.
We have ants again this year. I swear they built our house ontop of an ant hill! Last night I walked into the bathroom and the counter was moving. I am decided to just walk around with a big jug of that ortho home defense. I so hate ants!
