Wow! I am still tired from this weekend. A second cup of coffee would have been nice, but I had some shopping to do. I prepared my list last night. Unfortunately there were not many good sales, but there were a few items I needed to go along with some dishes I wanted to make.
I am hoping little face will go to bed soon. He has been in his bed/room for an hour now and no sleep. Sleep is not only for him, but for me to have some rest too. I am waking him up early to go to an awards ceremony for the older kids at school this afternoon. We have standard tests here in Texas and they both got Commendable Performances for their scores.
This is a huge accomplishment for my daughter to receive such high marks without any assistance. We had her tested this year, and she has dyslexia. I don’t know if any of you have a child with any disability, but it is hard to hear. To know your child is not only different, but the difference has a name. It now makes so much sense with all her troubles she is having in school It was a relief to hear that she can get help she needs. I was unsure if I should blog about it and announce it to the world. I have gotten more comfortable enough to write about it. Please comment if you have a child with a learning disability or know of any good blogs or sites to visit. I have been checking a few out on my own. I want to do my best to help her, since we have struggled so much in the past.
This is basically how her little brain sees words. She knows all the letters in a word. She just has difficulty remembering what order they go in.
I will post my shopping trips tomorrow, since this post went into something I had not planned on writing about. I am tired today and need to get ready to head to school in a few minutes.
