Today I am going to school with Griffin.
We are meeting with the Principal, and moving Griffin into a new class, with a new teacher.
This HAD to be done... there is no way my son is staying in a class where the Teacher treats him with disdain and derision... and tells him to his face that he is "JUST LAZY" !
My son has dyslexia, dysgraphia and dyspraxia... it has been PROVEN over and over again by various 'experts'.
For some ignorant pick of a man to poo-hoo all those reports and thinks my son is lazy is beyond belief!
I just hope I don't see him today... I might not be able to hold my tongue!
Fingers crossed for that not happening, cos I know lots of very, very bad words. *smiles*
At this point, I do not know if the flooring men will be arriving today or tomorrow. I will probably find out sometime this morning.
So, I went up to school and saw Griffin into his new class, but didn't meet his new teacher as she wasn't to be found, even though the Principal and I searched for her. Oh well... I'm sure I will meet her eventually.
Home now and I haven't heard from the flooring guys, so maybe they won't be here today.
That's OK, now I can relax for the day!
I'm off now to sweep the floor... there was a fair bit of dust under some stuff in the kitchen/family room.
VICTORIA: Griffin used a laptop and 'WORD Q' for all his work in his class last year... but the male teacher this year wouldn't let him use the computer, or Word Q it would appear.
I intend to still push for an IEP so that these things can be sorted out asap, so Griffin can actually DO something in class.
Mildly annoyed. Lacy and I have to attend a 'round table' meeting with Wade, his lawyer, our lawyer and us to discuss how the access visits are going, and to sign off the amendments that we have made.
Wade and I didn't think there was a need to have this meeting, as we were both happy with how it was going... but Wade's lawyer is insisting so dammit... we have to go.
On Thursday. While the flooring people are here. Grrrrrr.
There is to be some talk about the Protection Order Lacy has out on Wade too.... that should be fun. NOT. Luckily THAT part of the meeting will not involve me, I hope!
Things are very amicable between Wade, his family and me, and I don't want that to change. It is in the best interests of Keera that we get on with each other.
Griffin enjoyed his day in the new class, what a relief. Now I just have to wait and see how it goes.... because Griffin LIKED his first day with the other teacher... and look how THAT turned out!
I fell asleep on the couch after lunch today... been really tired lately. Could be due to having less energy due to the changed eating? Not sure... just know everything is an effort right now.
ABOVE: three bracelets I bought at the mall this morning. The top two are mine and the bottom one is for the girl from the bus.
She is still in hospital as she cannot stand on her own yet due to the broken collarbone and leg, both being on the same side of her body. Poor kid, I hope she continues to improve and is out of hospital soon.
End of Day: just took left over dinner to Lacy, it was nice to sit and just chat with her for a while. Keera had her first tumble today, fell forward while in her bouncinette, but not much damage done... except to Lacy's stress levels !
