I find it so funny how something that's basically the same as a favored food can be outright rejected. We get a lot of that here.

I'm almost glad that Scooter's school doesn't do anything about the next grade until the week before school starts. He can just put it out of his mind for a bit. This year, we've requested that we get to go in a little before the usual meet-the-teacher start time so that Scooter can meet her without the distraction of other kids. I'm also planning on writing a letter to explain how Scooter's issues, as documented in the IEP, manifest in a practical manner.

We've written letters every year of L.'s schooling and they have helped. Maybe not everyone takes to heart all that we write, but I think enough is, and we've seen the benefits.

Yummo! Now I'm totally craving pizza!

I feel sad for L, knowing that he's entering an age range that's tough for any kid. Hopefully the bright spot that was 4th grade will anchor him for his tweens!

That's what we're hoping, Omaha--that all the good stuff from this past year will propel him forward into more good next year.
