Og. We have all had enough of the rain already! May is flying by just because it doesn't feel like May, the weather has been so dismal lately. Once the sun comes out it'll be nearly June and we'll all wonder where May went.
I am working on the boys "All About Me" introductory documents, because I figure any day now we'll have that kindergarten transition meeting. It was scheduled and rescheduled and then cancelled, and has yet to be put back on the calendar as of right now, but I was talking to a teacher friend of mine who said that they will most definitely have the meeting before the school year ends, so I guess I better get ready.
This week while doing my weekly volunteer session in Aliza's school library I ran into the school secretary. The one I spoke of here, who ripped my heart out when she wrote "special ed" next to my boys' names on the kindergarten roster. Yeah, that one. I get a little guarded when I see her because I'm worried she's going to say something that feels like a punch. She's a perfectly nice woman, I just don't trust her now.
The school secretary said she'd heard the boys will be attending Sky Oaks elementary, and she wondered whether I was going to transfer Aliza there as well. I told her no, the schools are only a few blocks from each other and Aliza is pretty happy at Gideon Pond; she has friends there and is familiar with it, I don't think moving her would be a good thing for her. She said yes, and she knew the boys would be attending Gideon Pond as well but for their special education needs and I thought, you don't miss an opportunity to say those words, do you?!
