I almost cried today.
We had a meeting with Parker's head start teacher today, to decide about next year. Parker also goes to an autistic preschool. I learned today that Parker is doing so good that his academics are way above the other kids at head start. Granted, he are older, but he does have autism. I was so proud of him! They said he was making all his goals, making friends and listening well. He answers questions at circle time and is just doing great. They said they wish they could keep him for another year. Unfortunately he is older than the kids in his head start class so he'll have to go to a different head start next year. Everyone just had such great things to say about him. They said he picks things up fast and is adapting so well. For some reason, as happy and proud as I was, I felt sad. I can't really explain it. I guess I feel weird when things are going too well. Or maybe I know that grade school might not go as well for him. I really don't know what it was.
