Return to Krista's Korner

"Each of us must come to care about everyone else's children. We must recognize that the well being of our own children is intimately linked to the well being of all other people's children. After all, when one of our children needs life-saving surgery, someone else's child will perform it. When one of our children is harmed by violence, someone else's child will commit it. The good life for our own children can be secured only if it is also secured for all other people's children. But to work for the well being of all children is not just a practical matter-- it is also right!" - Lilian G. Katz, Phd.

Life goes on

I am getting ready for work this morning, and it is hard to believe the normalcy of the day.  Kids off to school, showering, picking up the house, hustling.   Aidan gave me his tests results for Project Inquiry, which is the fancy name for our honors program.  He got a 92 percentile in Verbal, 62 percentile in Quantitative and 53 percentile in Non-verbal.  He did not get into PI-  they require 97 percentile, but he is a smart cookie.  It is a family trait.  The only thing that worries me is the large differential between Verbal and Non-Verbal.

Konal's IEP is tomorrow.  IEP's are hard.  He is not doing well in school and we are at a loss on how to help him.  Written Expression and his assistive technology are the areas I think we may need to concentrate on.

It is a rainy day here and a snow day in Flagstaff.  I am feeling this in my bones.  I need to get ready for work, though, so off I go!
