So out of this habit it’s ridiculous. So guess I’ll just start with a small post. I never finished the Christmas newsletter picture section – but will just start over with that next Christmas season!
I’m still working many many hours for our sweet Chris, and we have discovered new parks to walk in, which I try and eventually introduce to the rest of the family eventually. This one is the Perry Bluffs and is so beautiful! The endeavor for an easier way for Christopher to communicate continues, and we try to get more and better ideas all the time. When we get a day all together as a family we treasure it. Funny how when something normal like that is discontinued for a time it is so treasured when it happens!
My three month semester break was ending May 31, and I knew I was not going to make that deadline. So I wrote and asked for another month, not thinking I’d get it, but they granted it until June 30! So I won’t have to return to my courses until July 1. Hopefully by then things will be more stable for us with my work schedule and everything else. I have one more semester of lesson plans, then another semester to write a large research paper.
The BAES degree is more described here BAES Degree– I have decided to get it and believe I will be satisfied with it. I will have a solid background in both special education and regular education and the ability to make lesson plans, and also I have the year or so of speech pathology and related prerequisites from Kent. when I do finish and get a job at some point I may seek something managerial in perhaps even the special needs/disabilities arena for adults, or something similar. I am most familiar with that! We’ll see what happens. If everything goes right I should graduate by June of 18 or a little before. I will also have the opportunity if I wish to to reenroll later and get my teaching degree by completing student teaching and observation.
