End of School Year & New School News

Matthew had his last day of preschool on Friday. He's off for 3 weeks and then returns for 5 weeks of summer school (4 hours per day). He will be attending a new school in the Fall. It is the same PAC program but in a different location. It will be a transition for him, but we hear the school has a good reputation and one of his classmates will also be transferring.

The teachers at his current school made this video to be shown at a potluck dinner for all the preschoolers and their families. We had terrible storms that night so the dinner was cancelled, but Matthew's teacher sent a copy of the video home and Matthew LOVES to watch his friends. It's a 6 minute video and most of Matthew's "close-ups" are during the first song. (He's the only blond boy with glasses so it's easy to pick him out!)

P.S. All of the children in the video either have the "developmental delay" or "autism" label. They are a great group and we will miss them!

That was so sweet of the teachers to do. I loved the music too. Thank you so much for sharing, it kind of brought a tear to my eye! (in a good way!)

I remember how amazed and emotional I was at the end of the Prince's first year of pre-k. All the kids had made so much progress.
