Not a lot of knitting going on right now...it's Monday and it's been a long day. I have gotten new designs charted and a few already test knitted. Thanks, Shirl! I'm trying to get enough designs done so that we have the rest of the year's KALs all set up and ready to go. Then I can focus on my knitting without worrying about the next month's KAL. I hate pressure. lol
I had Ms Thang's IEP (Individualized Education Plan) meeting today. (For any of you who don't already know...she is deaf and has a cochlear implant.) This normally only takes about 30 minutes tops but today was an hour long meeting. For the past 3 years, she has been in a Learning Disabled/Self-Contained classroom and she has really done well and made so much progress. Since she's going to middle school next year...we thought this would be a good time to mainstream her back into a regular classroom setting again. She will have accommodations to suit her needs and extra support available for her when and where it's needed. I am so proud of her and really excited about next year but terrified all at the same time. It's going to be a very hard transition...adjusting to a new school environment on top of the mainstreaming but she's so smart and adapts really well. I can't believe she's growing up so fast...MAN! it's hard to let them go!! It's time for a chocolate cake to celebrate her success!!
I really need to try to get a better photo on a sunny day. These fields are everywhere...not sure what it is but it's such a shock when you "round" the curve and suddenly you see these bright yellow fields pop up out of nowhere. When the sun is shining...it's gorgeous!! I hope they don't disappear before I get more shots.
I'm off to get some rest and re-charge my camera batteries....just in case.
