What a First Day!

Makenzie had a great first day of Kindergarten! I was very impressed to see a whole army of specialists there first thing this morning to make sure Makenzie had everything she needed.

We started out the day making sure her chair was set up the best it could be for Makenzie. Then we moved into the classroom and worked on switch access with the AT team along with the school team. We learned how to ask to go to the bathroom...hehehe, what Makenzie;s friends names where, the class room rules, how to stand in line, and the number one. Makenzie wrote her name a couple of times with hand over hand help and did a super job making choices with her switch. We also got to go outside and Makenzie went down the slide 3 times walking with help all the way up the stairs and over the bridge to get there. Smiles, smiles, and more smiles!

When we were getting ready to leave one of the specialist gave Makenzie a hug and told me how excited she was to be able to work with Makenzie. She told me how much potential she saw and how smart she knew Makenzie was. YEAH! Finally a person in the education system that really sees it and I feel believes it too! (yes Dan I know you do too and thank you for all of the hard work you put into making this year the best yet!)

I still feel Makenzie would be better served goal wise from a social perspective in a preschool class but you win some and you loose some. Even though I have full trust that these people at will do a wonderful job with Makenzie and she is going to learn a ton!

At the end of it all I am pretty sure kindergarten wore me out WAY more then Makenzie. We came home and I fed Makenzie and she had OT. After that I cuddled with her on the couch and before I knew it I was sound asleep!

Day number 2 is coming up and I am sure it is going to kick my butt again so I better get to bed!

"Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart,
as working for the Lord, not for men, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving."
(Colossians 3:23-24, NIV)


 Believe... Prayer Works!
