Happy Easter!

Hope everyone had a nice holiday. For me however, it was just another day. I completed my first writing assignment in my psych. class. A fitting article about Savantism. I was happy to get an A on it! I find out tomorrow what I scored on our first test. I think I did pretty well, but we will see.

The boys seem to be doing well. I talked to them a couple nights ago. The evaluation team came to our house last week and met our sweet Nicholas. They are now trying to match him up with a therapist. Mike and I both said the same qualities: Young, a bubbly personality, and someone who gets in his face. He seems to respond very well to those types of people. The more expressive the person, the more he is apt to pay attention.

He is speaking his mind more and more, which we are absolutely thrilled about. Mike told me they were parking the car in the driveway and Mike said "Seatbelt off" as he turned the car off. Nick responded back with a "shut up". Of course, Michael immediately burst out laughing at the fact that his 5yr old brother had just told off his daddy. He is doing better in school as well. The new program he is in has said that they will send his therapist to school with him twice a week for more one-on-one time. He will also probably be transferred back to Evergreen next year. The school is getting better, but they still are not equipped to handle him full time. He is going to need an aide for kindergarten. No question about it. We are excited though about the progress he has made, and the new services he will now be getting. Other than that, not much else to report.

Have a great day everyone! Thanks for thinking of us!
