Junior High School

As of tomorrow we will be 2 weeks in.  So far so good.  Matt’s TA has been with him on a week-to-week basis (being reevaluated tomorrow) and thankfully he has had a good two weeks.  There have been a couple of small instances that quickly dissipated only because Michelle was with him and knew what to do to calm the situation.

Tuesday evening he looked at me and I heard the words I have longed to hear from him for years.  “Mom, I can’t wait to go to school tomorrow.  I love my school!”  I tried very hard to control myself!!  I was ready to jump for joy!  He quickly followed this up by “Now, don’t get used to that, I may not feel that way every day!” but at this point I’ll take what I can get!

Then last night he asked us to get him up early so he could go for a bike ride or a walk before school!  He was actually up this morning BEFORE we woke him.  Had breakfast, got dressed, made his bed and was outside for well over an hour before he had to leave for school.  WOW – just wow!!

I know this could all change by the time he gets home this afternoon, but I’ll take what I can get at this point.  He is enjoying his new school, seems to be getting to know some of the kids and is getting back on schedule.  His mood has improved drastically and we haven’t had 1 meltdown since school resumed.  *sigh of relief*

Until next time…
