School's Out!

Whitney is officially out of school for the summer. Yesterday was her last day of kindergarten. Melanie dropped in with treats for the teachers, assistants, therapists and the interpreter and Whitney came home with the rest of her school work and her report card.

I'm not really sure she understood that she won't ever be going back to class there again, but I'm not sure how to explain it to her either. So for now we'll just tell her it's summer time and have some fun. We've got a big month of July planned with the 4th July weekend almost upon us and then the annual 1p36 Deletion Support & Awareness conference in just a few weeks.

Then Whit will begin first grade in August. It's hard to believe my oldest is a first grader and I think I've mentioned the concerns Melanie and I have about Whit making it all day at school. She's exhausted after just a half day of kindergarten! But we know they'll take good care of her and that she'll keep learning tons. She did so well this last year and we can't wait to see more of her progress. Thanks to everyone who has worked so hard to help Whitney this last year in kindergarten. We're very grateful for all you have done!

Good luck keeping Whit busy this summer. Zoe's school was closed Thursday and Friday for the holiday and by Saturday night she was signing school. Apparently we just aren't entertaining enough for her!

Haha! Whitney's the same way. So far we've kept her busy enough that she's not asked for school. Going to go play in the water a bit today and do some more fireworks. That should help. Until tomorrow...
