happy place

So lets see. First thing this morning I had Ryan's IEP. We only had two major changes that we wanted made. The first thing we wanted was for Ryan to be taught to type. The school system even has these little keyboards that Ryan can type on and then this ketboard plugs into a computer and Ryan can print out all of his work. Well the principle agreed and now Ryan will be learning to type.

We also asked that Ryan be taught how to use a calculator. The principle agreed.

For years we have been spinning our wheels with Ryan. We have tried every writing program, and he still can't write. We have tried every math program and this child still can't do basic math. So now we are moving on and are just going to give Ryan the skills he will need to get by.

Rusty and I are both very pleased.

Today I wanted to finish a quilt, because I need to get some of them quilted. I was almost done when I tried to hurry. I ended up sewing the last two lines wrong. So I had to take it all apart and do it again. That does not even bother me. I am still in my happy place.

Today I met a fellow j lander for lunch and we had a blast! I know that I will be seeing more of her and her son. Amber and this fellow j landers are the same age, so I am sure that they will end up going out and doing something.

Rusty was not feeling to good today so he came home early. I am glad that he is home. I think I am just going to go demand that he rub me down.

I am still sore from yesterday. Rusty say's that I am to old to be body surfing. I think he is just jealous that he can't body surf. LOL

I also got a phone call from Iraq today. It looks like all of my boy's are coming home! I can't wait to hold them. I have also gotten word that one of the boys is coming back injured, but they have not told me that.... they told Amber and I don't think I am suppose to know. That's o.k. I will be right here waiting for him, hurt or not, these are my boys.

Life is good.
