Shelby's School

Ready for school!

The pool that Shelby loves swimming at every Thursday

For some reason Shelby had a really hard time adjusting to school this year. Same teachers, same classroom, but not a happy Shelby. For the first month and a half of school it just kept getting worse and worse. She would cry the second that I walked into her room in the morning, she HATED the bus, she would cry at school, she would cry after get the picture. It was almost to the point where I was about to take her out because it just wasnt worth it. LUCKILY, Shelby has the greatest teacher ever. She is so wonderful and amazing with Shelby. We set up a meeting and talked a long time about what would be best for Shelby. We decided that it was a combination of the cranky, old morning bus driver, emotional immaturity and waking up too early. I also had a meeting with a child psychologist that gave me some great tips on things that would help Shelby. I started taking her to school. I dont wake her up early, just take her when she wakes up. It has made a world of difference. She is back to her normal, happy self. She loves school again!
I am so truly grateful for Shelby's school. I feel like there is no better place for her right now. She has 2 teachers and 2 other students in her class. She gets so much one on one time. She is able to be seen by a physical therapist, occupational therapist, orientation and mobility specialist every month. It's a wonderful blessing for us!

A great weekend!

We loved it!

Snow White

Keaton was mesmerized

The Mayan!

Keaton will NOT look at the camera.

We had a really great weekend this past week. On Thursday night we decided at the last minute that we wanted to take the kids to Disney on Ice. So we drove down there and got some cheap tickets. The kids loved it! Keaton never took his eyes off the whole show and Shelby was screaming with excitement the whole time. On Friday night we decided to take the kids to the Mayan. They have never been there so I thought that they might like it.

Check out those GUNS!!!

I thought I would see if Keaton was ready for potty training this week. Not so much....


Happy Birthday Ngoc Lan!

Keaton did not appreciate trick-or-treating. Strange kid.

Shelby liked it for a few houses. Then she said "I'm done"

Goofy and kitty!

Here are a few more Halloween pictures. We went to Josh and Ngoc Lan's house to go trick or treating and celebrate Ngoc Lan's birthday.
