MY BIG SCHOOL GIRL!!!!
Reply with quote

I finally have a new brag!! My precious baby started school almost two weeks ago, first grade, with her twin step brothers. She is partly mainstreamed, partly in a special ed part of the school, which works wonderfully!

Today, after dinner and kicking back, it was time for our first homework. And let me tell ya'll; my little Down syndrome daughter (who so many people have told me would never be able to hold a pencil right) grabbed her paper, her pencils and sat down at the table. Her homework was a paper with six different framed drawings of a small and a big object; frogs, horses, balls, bottles etc. I explained to her that she was to find the biggest one in each frame and color it for me. She didn't even hesitate!! She got them all right, colored her drawings and looked at me with that "Geez, mom, I thought this was supposed to be HARD!"-look on her face.
Then, to top it off, she was going to underline the small drawings. I explained, showed her with the first one, and here we go again! We've been working so hard on trying to write a 'B' this entire summer, and now she almost has it! Cool And her teacher looked at me funny when we talked this summer and I explained to her that my goal for my daughter is that she is going to be able to write her name by the end of this school year. Laughing She'll get that done before Christmas keeping up this pace! Yay for Bene, and a glass of wine for Mommy who really deserves a wuppin' for not believing she could actually do this! Wink

That's wonderful! I love that photo too, she looks like a cross between a snow angel and a kitten laying in a ray of sun!
