We had Lucy tested last week for Auditory Processing Disorder and I'm happy to say, she passed it perfectly!
Next step is testing for learning disabilities.
Lucy's teacher filled out all the necessary paperwork for the school district (our new district) to have her evaluated.
I received the call two weeks ago inviting Jeff and I to attend the monthly Special Ed team meeting to determine whether or not they were going to proceed with testing.
I was told this would be a 5 minute meeting and technically we didn't even have to be there.
Well, I decided to attend anyway, (without Jeff) hoping to hear some good news.
I walk into the meeting this morning and there's 25 people in attendance wanting me to me to tell them about Lucy.
Whoa, deep breath in... I do not like public speaking and did I mention, it' 25 people!
I had nothing prepared..
It started out rough, my voice was cracking, a little bit of the "ugly cry" was coming out.
Ya'll know what I'm talking about.. UGH!
Over the next 20 mins my heart literally was on display, right there on the table for everyone to see.
I talked about her developmental delays, her speech, her reading, her gross motor skills, everything!
This team of people slowly started to ask me questions and they quickly put me at ease.
These are hands down the nicest people I've met since moving here.
They are going to proceed with testing. :)
I'm starting to let go of the fear I have and realize that this is the best thing I could be doing for Lucy to help her be successful.
We had our house inspection last week and I snapped a few photos with my iphone.
This is a quick photo I took of Lucy looking out at the front yard.
Is it crazy to say I wanted to buy this house because of these windows and because of the trees? I'm always thinking of where I can take photos and where the Christmas tree is going. :)
And just look at the view!
Now, I just have to get in there and paint all the ugly stained trim.
This is the view of the backyard from the deck.
Just 3 more weeks!
