School prep and prize givings
It gave us a bit of time to chat too. So I made use of trying out my new phone's camera while I was there for a few minutes.
It was a VERY hot day. Still 32 degrees after 5pm!!!
This was his self portrait.
We had a lady from the Ministry of Education visiting with us today. She just loved how sweet Anastasia looked, so took these photos for me.
I really enjoyed spending time chatting with her and also getting her feedback that Asher really is ready for school. She pointed out many positive things that she could see in Asher through the bit of time she had there and so it was really encouraging.
She always looks very serious when receiving badges.
Rachel had a ballet lesson before St John, so we had left by 3:30. Hannah and Hezekiah had asked Brendon if he would take them to the pool. He was unsure about taking Asher but decided to give it a try (I had mentioned that last summer she had been to the pool a lot without seizures). They all had a great time but unfortunately Asher had a seizure while in the pool. It's made us a bit nervous about taking her back again. It has been so very hot though and he says she did so love the time she had before it hit.
Wednesday 6th: Asher missed out on her full morning at preschool today as she had a seizure at 10:30. She then had another one at 5pm. So a rough day for her. She started pacing again in the evening and so Brendon just gave her an extra dose of her medication. Unfortunately these pacing sessions are happening a lot more frequently now.
This evening Anastasia and I were out again, this time to the Te Kura prize giving as Rachel had a couple of certificates to receive. She has done very well in her English NCEA Level 2 this year and has worked hard on all her subjects. Well done Rachel.
