"Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion; it
is not the expression of personality, but an escape from personality. But, of
course, only those who have personality and emotions know what it means to want
to escape from these things." ~T. S. Eliot

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you
did, but people will NEVER forget how you make them feel ~ Maya Angelou

I've always been drawn to things that display class, glamour, and beauty

The Begining of Summer

Ahh, yes the end of the school year the begining of Summer. Most people will plan their family vacation, put kids in programs and parents waiting for the school year to begin.

We'll be planing a vacation, were going to check out the libary for some programs for Ryleigh, and then the school shopping and her returning to a new school next year.

Yes I'm alittle nervous but for Ryleigh she doesn't even know..we have talked to her to let her know she'll be going to a new school but all she says "Ride the school bus!" So I'm not going to worry about it and enjoy our summer.
Everyday she gets notes in her planner and then some paper work, so last night while I was looking thru her folder there was a packet from Ms Kristin, her Occupational Therapist who we absolutely love, and there are list of things for us to incorporate in her routine for the summer here is the list that was sent home.


Here are just some of things will be doing this summer
*Upper Extremity Strengthening
Dusting table, she love this one and cleaning window!
drawing on chalkboard, which she is more than willing to do.
*Bilateral Coordination
buttons or other fasteners
folding towels and clothers
*Visual Perceptual Motor Skills
Magna Doodle, which she has about 6 of them
tracing pictures, words, letters, shapes.
*Eye Hand Coordination
pop bubbles floating in air with finger tips
batting and hitting beach balls
*Fine Motor Skills
play dough activities..oh yeah! outside we will be doing this
cutting items such as play dough, sandpaper sponges
Hop scotch
standing on one leg for 5-10 sec

There is so much more we need to do but I think I've made my point.

Having a child with a disablity has really enlighten me to how a child needs to be taught and the process of teaching the child in the way he or she may have to learn.
I am so proud of my little girl and she has taken big huge steps in this process this school year.

We love all our children and want to protect them from the world and from the bullies of the world but I got an email from Ms Everson some while back stating "I don't think you need to worry about Ryleigh, she takes up for herself and doesn't let anybody bully her."
Wow I thought, this shy little girl, guess she's going to be just fine.
