Some news to update everyone on Alexis' status with Perkins. On Friday we got the phone call that said, YES SHE'S BEEN ACCEPTED TO PERKINS. :-) Unfortunately though, we think Alexis suspended frequently for disrupting the teachers and administrators from their other jobs. She had 12 people watching her and she was a MAJOR HAM! HA HA!
We will determine on Monday when we officially start, probably some half days and then hopefully full time. We'll see how well Matt, Jessica and I adjust. It'll be great fun for Alexis, the teachers and the classroom are a lot of fun.
We start this week the horribly sad process of saying goodbye to our Early Intervention Therapists. It'll be quite sad sad sad. When we "graduated" from the NICU / Special Care Nursery, we could always go back to the hospital to visit with them. For the Early Intervention therapists, there are few rare times that we can visit when they are all together (& when Alexis is awake & not at school).
Thanks for staying tuned to us.....Catherine
