Out of Gas!

These past few weeks have been absolutely crazy! Within 3 weeks I had to bring a school year to a close, get ready for one of my step-daughters to visit for a week, get ready for a new school year, and now my sister-in-law and brother-in-law are in town. I can't forget the fact that I am trying to write a grant for $1000 worth of Signing Time products.

This summer I noticed some of my former students fingerspelling to each other on the playground before school. It hit me right then that an after school ASL club would be fantastic! We have a brand new principal who seems to really be student-centered. I went to her to ask if she allowed after school programs like that (I don't think it would have been as easily accepted by our previous principal). Whether or not I was truly intending on doing it (which I was)she ran with the idea and even talked about how we could do an assembly for the school down the road. I am really excited!

A few weeks later we were sent an application to apply for a grant for $1000 worth of materials. It was perfect timing. I am trying to get it written this weekend (with the help of another teacher- thanks Deb) and signed off by my prinicpal on Tuesday. I really hope I get it!

Another bit of good news, actually HUGE news, is that we just got a prescription to get Matthew a reverse walker! We are picking up the prescription on Tuesday, so hopefully we will find a place that has them in stock. I am so excited (until I have to start chasing after him).

This week I have been sleeping 4-5 hours a night. It finally caught up with me last night. It's a good thing we have a 3 day weekend! Next week I have open house for Leigha on Tuesday night and I have open house for my students on Wednesday. Hopefully, after those days, things will start to settle down. Not likely- but I can hope!

I will close tonight out with some pictures of the kids playing this past week.
