More Firsts

Today is Lainie's first day of school for this year, and she is excited. She came down the stairs this morning, proclaiming, "I wake up! I wake up! Go to school!" She looked adorable in her Dora the Explorer shirt and Dora backpack. Right now, I'm guessing she's listening to a story or making a craft. I'm confidant she's having fun and getting that fabulous interaction.

I have so much faith in our school district! At her daycare, there are 3 kids who need transportation to school, and one of them is in a wheelchair. So, the district sends a van just for that one stop. Then, they had another guy come from the bus barn to help get the wheelchair in the van and make sure it all worked well. AND, because of Lainie's history of seizures, they require a paraprofessional ride in the van, too, in case she would have a seizure on the way to school. So, for three kids, this morning, there were 3 adults to help. How's THAT for a ratio!

And the other first? Natalie's started rocking on all fours. She was getting in the plank position last week, but last night she continually got on all fours and rocked back and forth. This is extra exciting to us because it shows her Gumby foot doesn't hurt her mobility and it's months earlier than her sisters did it. Way to go, Natalie!
