I dropped my son off before his morning class. His last words to me were, “Pray for me.” Oh, I have been...a lot. I put that on Facebook, so S had many prayer warriors praying for him.
It was a pretty awesome moment to see him take his first “step” (I should say roll) into this new chapter of his life.
|I was allowed to take a picture at home but not at school.|
His first day went well. He didn't get lost. He ran into a student he attended co-op with a couple of years ago, and this kind young man made sure S got to the right classroom for Statistics.
He said the worst part of the day was just trying to get everything back into his bag. His pencil fell on the floor. His audio recorder fell on the floor and the batteries fell out. When his dad went to show him that the file was still on the recorder, dad deleted the file. Oops! (Dad is buying him a new recorder tonight.) Packing his bag up has always been a challenge for him. It will get faster and easier with practice.
He talked to his teachers about his accommodations. He went to the Tutoring Center and is set up to start Statistics tutoring next week. He met up with the Assistive Technology Coordinator in one of the buildings, and this very helpful man made sure everything was set up in the classroom for S.
He is working on his homework as I am typing this. We are thankful Day 1 was successful. Tomorrow is just English class. Hoping for another successful day!
You will find me on the couch with chocolate celebrating the successes in life!
