I decided to unplug a little bit so I set up posts of my tangle alphabet to post last week and next.

I only have 4 weeks left of school and then I have about a 7 week break. In the next four weeks we have the final DBA (District Benchmark Assessment), Play Day, The Janice Saavedra Fun Run (So named for the woman who started it, 23 years ago, and passed away last summer of cancer.), the dedication of the gym in Janice's name, report cards to finish, the 5th grade party and finally the graduation.

I am really looking forward to the summer. It usually takes me a couple weeks to unwind and to find a new rhythm with Sam. So, I want to plan ahead. In the mornings we can go for a walk, run errands and play at home and I'm sure we'll be spending a lot of afternoons at the pool. I also need to plan for next school year, clean my refrigerator, clean the garage, finish the FINANCIAL PEACE UNIVERSITY CLASS I am currently taking, clean the carpets and do some decluttering.

We are saving family activities like: the zoo, aquarium, a day in Santa Fe and a train ride for Richard's Wednesdays off.

We will probably get Sam's eye surgery out of the way too.

This past week we had a meeting with Child Find to determine if they will be picking him up when he ages out of Abrazos. They need to do an update on the needs assessment since the last one they did was almost a year ago. Then they will decide how much intervention he needs. I am hoping he gets to start pre-school (5 days a week, 2 hours a day) in August.

So, what does May look like for you?

With so much on your plate, I am grateful that you prepped your alphabet posts - I have been enjoying them tremendously. I just back-checked your post on Sam's eyes - I'm glad that you're being proactive and advocating effectively for your son, so that he accesses what he needs and doesn't undergo any unnecessary interventions. It's a fine line and a difficult one, but you are doing it like a pro! He's a lucky little laddie and I wish you much joy of him this summer.
