Small Moments in May

We went to a special needs bounce night at our local BounceU.  Brandon's physical agility never ceases to amaze me.  He can hang right there with the big kids.

I got a Master's degree in Elementary Education and accepted a position as a 4th grade teacher!

We started Gemiini (an accelerated reading and language therapy).  I have no idea if it will help, but we will see!  So far I like it.

We were playing in the backyard.  Brandon looked up at me and I saw this:

Because had been doing this...

We went to the lake.  The first weekend of the summer is always hard for him.  He does great on the boat, but back at the lake house he has a hard time in the new (but not really) surroundings and all the people around him.

Brandon loves it when I spike his hair.  He will find the hair gel bottle, bring it to me, and start patting his head.  Then he'll put his head all up in my face to make sure I know he wants me to do his hair.  I love it.

Brandon said some numbers at Speech Therapy and attempted to hold up his fingers!  Yay!

Brandon's new thing is to knock on doors and windows.  Eh...who cares, right?  Wrong!  When his class is outside, he knocks on the other classes' windows and disrupts them.  When he wakes up in the morning he starts knocking on his own door, waking me from a deep sleep...and scaring the crap out of me.  At the lake house, when he woke up at 6:30 a.m., he walked down the hallways and knocked on everyone's door before I could stop him.  (That one was actually a little funny.)

We started a summer playgroup for non-verbal and/or non-reliably verbal kids.  It was so fun.  I met some great ladies, and I was so proud of how well-behaved Brandon was (mostly) and how well he followed directions.

Brandon is still in dance class, and is doing a fantastic job.  It's a night and day different since that first month.
