Day 1 Homebound School

We just finished Day 1 of our public school homebound packet. Chloe was not excited about doing school work. She thinks she is on break. She doesn’t understand all of this commotion or that there is a bad virus out there.  I wouldn’t even know how to explain it to her.

I love her teacher and school therapists.  They set up everything so well. Chloe has a binder with specified work for each day of the week. Her therapists sent home a box of activities along with instructions and other ideas. So thankful for them.

Our school system is also providing free breakfast and lunches for all students.  We have to pick it up, so not sure I will do that. The nearest school is still quite a drive and I’m trying to save on gas.

So I’m back to homeschooling,  but with curriculum provided. Chloe is starting to get stir crazy already,  so after OT therapy tomorrow I may take her to my parents so she can run off some energy. She has been scripting a lot!! Red flag that she needs movement. It’s been raining a lot, so hopefully tomorrow will be nice out.

We are chugging along here, praying this virus goes away soon. I hope all of you are safe and well. Take care and prayers for good health.

Have a good evening 😊

Public School At Home

Good morning 😊

Schools are being shut down all over the country. Its a good precaution to keep everyone safe and healthy.

Our school system and many.others are sending students school lessons online,  or in our case we are picking up packets to work on. This way school days don’t have to be made up and learning continues 😊

We are getting a packet since I don’t have internet at home yet. I have explained to Chloe that we are not going to school, but that her teacher is giving her work to do at home. She seems fine with it. The 3rd week is our school systems Spring Break. Not sure what we will do since everything is shut down.

So we are picking up Chloe’s packet today and starting tomorrow . I appreciate our school system working so hard during this time.

Are any of your child’s schools closed?

What are they doing about those days?

Thanks for stopping by today. Stay healthy🙂

No School For 3 Weeks😲

Good Morning 😊

Well schools in our state have shut down because of the coronavirus. I know this is a serious illness, but the media is making it worse, of course. I want what’s best for everyone,  but this will affect Chloe greatly.  She was just getting into the groove of her school schedule.

Our school system is doing at home learning for students. Chloe will get a packet of work for the next 2 weeks to complete. The 3rd week is our designated Spring Break, so no school that week. So I guess Im homeschooling again the next 2 weeks😀.

This virus is serious, like the flu, but I think it is also a political thing. The timing is strange, but again safety is important for everyone. I am just horrified by empty store shelves and rude people. We forget that we need to come together and help others, not be so rude and unloving.

So Chloe won’t return to school until April 3rd, hopefully.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day

Haircut and Picture Day

Good Morning 😊

Today is Chloe’s first School picture day in 3 years😁

I needed her hair trimmed and layered for today. On Monday my older daughter Mattie came over and trimmed Chloe’s hair. Chloe loves her and will let her do things no one else is allowed to. Lol. Her hair looks so much better.

Spring school pictures have to be paid for in advance.  I always thought that was unfair. I think we should see the pictures first and decide on what we want. So it’s a roll of the dice😏 Her past pictures were super cute. So I guess we will wait and see. 

The toughest part of this is what she will wear. I can’t just go buy an outfit I think is pretty, because she most likely won’t wear it. So i pick 2 tops from her closet I think will be ok and let her choose. 

I’m excited to have a new picture of her. It’s been awhile. I will share it with you when they come back.

Welcome to my new followers 😍

Have a wonderful day

Great Report From Teacher🍎

Good Morning🍎

Chloe is doing so well in school. I couldn’t be more proud of her. Her teacher sends me texts about her progress often. I love it❤

I recently got pictures sent to me showing how Chloe is learning addition with carrying over. We were beginning to work on this in homeschool before i placed her back in school. Her teacher said she is catching on quick. She also said Chloe’s reading skills were outstanding! That made me feel good. I always worried if I was teaching her well enough.

Chloe receives Speech and OT Therapy at school. She is very happy with her therapists. Next week I have a meeting at the school to set up a new evaluation for her since its been 3 years. I am excited to meet her other Special Education teachers and therapists.

I called today to get the appointment for Chloe’s Occupational Therapy Evaluation at her therapy center outside school. We are going to be quite busy once everything gets set up. I, for one, am very excited for Chloe to get the services she so desperately needs.

Chloe’s behavior has improved a lot since starting school. She is calmer and going to bed without fussing. She has buddies at school and outside school. I am so happy for her😊

Back To School…Finally

Good Morning 😊

Yesterday was Miss Chloe’s first day back to school. She was off an entire week! She wasn’t very happy when I turned on her light at 6:00 am yesterday morning. She said “Mom lay down”. Lol

Once she was up she was moving right through her schedule.  She is still having trouble eating, but ate some of the light foods I sent in her lunchbox.  She was very excited to see her buddy and she got to go to the playground.  She was very happy when I picked her up.

She has school pictures coming up, which I am excited about. I need a new picture of her. Her sister Mattie is trimming her hair for me. It’s been forever! So thankful Mattie helped with that, since I can’t take Chloe to Great Clips.

So she is back to school and I am working cleaning houses. I’m self employed for now. This Fall I may find a different job, but for now I love this😊

Thank you for stopping by.

Have a great day🙂

Beautiful Day🌞

What a beautiful day we had yesterday! 

Chloe and I have been sick for 2 weeks. Today was the first day we felt like being outside. I took Chloe by the lake to play. It was packed! There are several playground areas there, so I found the least crowded one. She was quiet, but enjoyed herself.

I am happy she is finally doing better and can get back to school. She still has a cough, but no congestion or fever. She is having a hard time eating. If she eats anything heavy she throws up. So I sent very light foods on her lunchbox. This flu virus is a monster!!!

I’m glad she got to play today since we are expecting rain the next 4 days😲 This week Chloe should finally get tp begin therapy outside school. Just waiting on her insurance cards. They were sent to the wrong address the first time🙄.

So we are both on the mend and getting back on track😊
