I love to praise my kids and this week they deserve a mention.
First lets start with the Little Man. He's had a struggle since being at school, I've found, having three Summer babies, that starting school can be difficult because they are younger than most of their peers. The Little Man was immature, but he's also pretty clever which is quite a mix. His behaviour hasn't been good, but his work has.
Yesterday it was his parents evening and the teacher was full of praise. Over the last term he has calmed down a lot, his behaviour has improved considerably and he's settling down to do his work. His work has been fantastic with him being in the top group of the class for all his subjects, although he does need to work on his writing a little. He's six years old, I'm sure his writing will improve.
I am so proud of him. I'll be even prouder on Friday as we have been invited to the school to see him receive a certificate in assembly.
It's not been plain sailing with him. He was referred to the school nurse because of his behaviour and a few other issues. He has hyper mobile joints just like his sister which means he gets some pain and could also be the reason why he has trouble with his writing as his fingers are hyper mobile too. (Most members of our family have some hyper mobility issues.) The nurse has decided that he needs a few sessions of one to one as he has some emotional issues. One of which is that he is not dealing very well with me being ill. He really wants to know when I will get better, but he hasn't asked me or his Dad. We have tried to talk to all the kids but it's hard when we don't even know ourselves what is going to happen. Hopefully these sessions will help him.
Last week we had to attend an assembly to see Boo receive a certificate in assembly for Engagement in her lessons. She's doing really well at school and we've never had any problems with her. I will always be proud of my sweet Boo.
Then there is Star, who is about to undergo a huge change as she will break up for an extended Easter holiday next week, and when she goes back her school will be in a new building. Yesterday she came home really happy because she'd been for a tour of the new building. She was one of a selected few and had a special pass made for her. She was chosen as group who find change difficult, so the school is trying to recognise the needs of it's Autistic children. I'm glad that she's taking this all so well.
