We are slowly moving away from the weird limbo that our lives have been in for the past few months....but we are not quite there yet to the other side...and there are still obstacles in our way...
We toured a couple out-placement schools for Michael. We liked both, but found one that seems to be a fit for him. I am being overly cautious on this...it would be a very good fit, and I do not want to even mention how warm our reception was, how much they "got" our son. Because I do not want to be heartbroken if, for whatever reasons, he doesn't not end up going there. All I can say is that they took him into a couple class rooms and he was talking with other children and seemed welcome and was so happy. Luckily, everyone agreed that he would fit there...enough so that he will spend two trial days there next week to see how it works out. I cautiously hope that this leads to a transfer to this school.
Chewy starts his new adventure with a bang on Monday, by going to NYC for a few days for orientation. He is excited and anxious, as one is with any new venture. Gonna miss him, but glad it is the start of his job.
Willow lost another tooth AND has a cavity in a tooth in the back. We will have to get that dealt with in the new year. Also, apparently Michael had his vision tested at school...and, surprise, he is nearsighted like his parents! So glasses are probably in his future also.
The holidays.are here in full force too...we have Hanukkah starting this week (when Chewy is gone), so we are letting the kids open their first night of Hanukkah presents this weekend. And tomorrow we are going to a breakfast with Santa.
My birthday is coming...feeling older and tired...a little wiser...unlike last year, I really want this year to be over already.
