Bummer weekend...

We stayed home all weekend and it was boring. Saturday dh worked and I stayed home and cleaned the house. Fun fun. Sunday wasn't a whole lot better except Bobby was home and we changed the living room around some. We brought in the table from outside and put it in the living room. We also moved the desk and changed a few things around. I'm really happy with it. He also hung up a few things for me that I've been wanting him to hang up. We played a few games of Rummy afterwards. That was nice. I'm in such a blah mood because money is tighter than tight, I'm behind on my school work and we've been stuck at home. Also, our great respite worker told us this weekend that she is going to move back to Vermont at the end of October. I am so sad about her moving. She is the best respite worker anyone could ask for. How am I going to find one as good as her? I guess everyone has times like this. It's been putting me in a bad mood and I hope today is better. I have a lot of worries and I need to give them to God and then leave them in his hands. I don't have any other choice.

I got Parker's assessment from his preschool teacher. It was an assessment of some of his goals. He did great on most of them and met a lot of them. The ones he really had trouble with were the tracing and the alphabet. He has no interest in letters and we need to come up with a way to get him interested. Does anyone have any good ideas. Thanks to Julie, Parker's ABA worker is going to print off a bunch of dot to dot pages for Parker! He thought that was a great idea!

Here's hoping everyone has a great Monday!

I'm teaching my 3 (soon to be 4) year old to write his letters. The other day my son did not want to follow the lines he wanted to go where he wanted to. This is funny to me now but then I was so aggravated with him. I wonder what they are thinking when they are learning new things?

Aawww, I'm sorry to hear about your "bummer" weekend. I hope you're feeling better by now.

I found those dot-to-dot books at Walmart near the coloring books. They had a lot of educational activity books.

My son has no interest in writing letters, either. I'm sure we'll do the dot-to-dot thing, but I don't know if that will be enough. I was thinking of making him a book using pictures of his Thomas trains arranged like the letters. ??? Don't know, but I'll try anything!

Good luck to you!
