I had put the left over cake in the freezer and took it out last night. I was thrilled to see that it froze well, and so I brought the 2nd half up to the school today for their morning tea. There are 4 boys that have turned 5 in the last month, so it was nice to sing to all of them.
At 4:30, not long before we got home, Asher had a 1 minute Tonic Clonic. Brendon said it was really violent with her going very blue around her mouth, so I'm pleased it was short. We are also thankful that she didn't have a seizure yesterday. For the previous 5 Sundays (the day we do her medication decrease) she has had seizures. So although not totally surprised that she had one, it was great that it wasn't on the Sunday. It may still be related to the decrease, but we are almost there with getting her totally off it. So hopefully things will settle down soon.
Tuesday 11th: When I collected Asher from preschool today she had this pretty little skirt on. She looked so cute. I didn't have my camera though, and I think this questioning look is because I was using my phone to take a photo. :-)
This evening we went to a family dinner at the farm. I again forgot my camera! This does give a nice idea of what a lovely evening it was though.
Brendon and I spent most of the time running around after Asher. There were a number of children present, and a whole range of ages. It was a reminder for me of how much harder things are with Asher. As her OT said on Wednesday "it's good to be reminded like this as to why you are so tired."
And another photo at home, showing her stripes on her top. She had finished earning the promotion a while back, but there kept being hiccups in getting it presented. So it was lovely that it was presented at such a special event.
Wednesday 12th: Champion Centre again today. Even though she has had a 2 week break, she fitted right back into things. I just forgot my camera - AGAIN!
Emma had even bigger gel balls today (the size of an egg). Asher was last in the playroom, so she could squish them to her hearts content. Emma had specifically kept some nice big whole ones for her to break too. Emma got some photos of those. She enjoys it so much and when she broke the big ones she would look up at Emma and I with such satisfaction on her face.
It was nice to see her spend a bit more time painting today. Lately she has only done a couple of dots and then moved on.
Thursday 13th: The big news for the end of the week is about Hannah's school class. On Wednesday after school I went with Hannah to her class to find out more about her homework for this week. She had again missed some information that the teacher had given on Monday. So it was good to clear that all up. I ended up chatting to her teacher about some of my concerns with Hannah. She is in a very big class of combined year 4 and 5 children. I think it's around 28 children. So Hannah is just hiding in the crowd.
Hannah's class situation has been on my mind for a while now, so after chatting to the headmaster on the phone on Wednesday afternoon, and then seeing him on Thursday just before school finished - we finally had a conclusion on Friday morning.
|I finally took a photo of the newsletter that Hannah was on.|
