Progress on the Education Front

After being told for two weeks that nothing can be done until we finalize Hope, the school district has had a change of heart. Shortly after I called the principal of the neighborhood school to inquire which kindergarten teacher was going to get stuck with Hope  on the first day of school, the special ed people called back and asked me to send any information I had on Hope to them. Progress.

We have decided to start Hope in the little room, with monitor, alarm, bed and new bedding. We are getting an L-shaped bunk set, with a built in staircase, storage drawers, and a desk for GB's room with the idea the girls may possibly share a room at some unspecified  point in time.  GB is very excited and is stuck on getting to Texas. We have decided to make Hope her first name and give her Faith as a middle name. GB considered taking Faith as her middle name, but ultimately decided her own middle name was much prettier. I still do not know which one of them will be finalized  first. The only appropriate placement for Hope that can finagle an opening, is the special ed preschool GB went to. That is the placement I am going to insist on. I verified today that the school takes a couple of kindergartners  every year in its Pre- K program. There are several children in each of the 4 year old classes who are working on toilet training, so Hope's pull-ups will be a non-issue.

My oldest girl is off and raging again, with the baby expected any day. D takes his final tomorrow.

I am glad that the school system is coming around to understand not to mess with a momma needing something for her child. :-) Hopefully this is a sign that you are not going to have the struggles you did last year for GB.
Awesome the girls get to pick their own middle names, that is what I got to do for the girls, they were to young to do it for themselves but it is something special between us.

I m so proud of you getting something done about Hope's future school. Way to get results...even if you did have to go to the principal. Also, I love the arangements of the rooms and the new middle name. I am relieved you have kept hope as her first name. You are doing so awesome! Keep it up.
