Major Changes in the Air

Griffin has expressed that he “hates schools.” This attitude started at the beginning of the 2008-2009 school year and has increased exponentially. Over the pass four months he has starting crying in the morning about school and throwing temper tantrums, if school is mentioned on Sunday evening. He walks down the driveway every morning head hanging, shoulders slumped, and feet dragging. As they say down on the farm, "Somethin' ain't right wit that boy."

To our surprise Griffin requested something we'd not really considered. He said we wanted to go to Will's school, our local elementary. Because he's hard-of-hearing (HH) he's attended another school system since pre-school. That's all about to change.

Joe and I decided it was time to mainstream this little guy . . . at least for a couple months. As of this morning the IEP (Individual Education Plan) states he will indeed attend Will's school. Such a huge change I can't wait to tell him tonight. I hope he's excited!

I feel the SAME way about work on Sundays as Griffin feels about school on Sundays. I dreaaaaad Mondays! Hopefully going to Will's school will alleviate some of his dread!
