With summer looming, I’ve spent the last six weeks helping Peach ease back into school. She’s doing SO well, she amazes me every day. And while she isn’t quite ready for a full day’s immersion, or riding the bus, or being there on her own without me nearby, we are totally stoked to have her eating lunch in the cafeteria again, going out for recess, staying for art each afternoon and working with her tutor. She’s even gotten back into a classroom over the last few days! Believe me, for a PANDAS kid who’s been out of school and homebound for six months, this is HUGE.
But, as you might guess, I personally have a lot of time on my hands right now, hanging out in the school lobby or sitting on the floor in the hall outside her classroom. I’m writing a bit, but I’m also doing some reading to pass the hours. And I just had one of those “Whoa!” experiences I’ve mentioned before, about all this stuff that’s swirling about in my head lately, thanks to a great little book.
I may ramble, but there is a point here… That’s how I roll.
