This kid (the little tiger on the left) is blowing me away. Seriously.
He has grown by leaps and bounds in just a few short months. His educational therapist from the IU is praising his ability to remember letters, which has been a HUGE setback for him this year. This week, at the grocery store, he pointed to a sale tag and asked, "Is that tenny free?" (translated: "is that ten and three?") Indeed, it was the numbers 10 and 3!! He recognized them on his own, in random sequence! Then, when I picked him up from his last classroom day in his transitional kindergarten today (tomorrow, his official last day, is "park day"), he showed me how he wrote his last name...PERFECTLY! That was right before he held the door for all of us leaving the building and then asked, "Mom, can I please have grilled cheese for lunch?" HE SAID PLEASE!! You bet your sweet bippy I was praising him up, down and all around for that progress!
