all ready to go...check out the tummietote peaking out! ;)
Today was Bean's first day of second grade. She looks so big...and she should because she has gown about an inch and half since April!!
Ubergeek, Bean, and I had a 'brief' meeting with her teachers, the new nurse, and the new principal yesterday to go over the 'quick version' of the D care so they were prepared for today. They were all very receptive and the new nurse even knows about T1...HUGE improvement over last year, to say the least. A meeting to implement her 504 plan and have more in depth training will be scheduled soon.
She handled everything herself today (with teacher's supervision, as detailed in our meeting) and overall she rocked it!! Not that I had any doubt, but with the excitement of friends and such...
After recess she was 68 (yikes! need to change that 'not below 130' to 'not below 140' so she has her designated snack...she was 134, btw, before recess, and that little snack would have held her pretty steady during recess). So, she slurped down her squeezable applesauce she carries in the D-backpack, and decided not to dose for her lunch, but went ahead and ate. About an hour and a half later she tested and dosed. She had only gone up to 266, so I think she made an excellent call!!
It was also my first day at school!!! I found out yesterday at 2 that I would be filling in long term for a teacher who transferred to another school. HELLO?!?! 18 hours notice to start teaching....seriously?!?! Thankfully I was able to meet with my team teacher for a few hours so we could figure out a plan for today.
It's an interesting situation that I won't even try to explain...reason one being it's an incredibly bizarre schedule and reason two being I had about 3 hours of sleep last night!! In a nut shell, I'm team teaching 4th grade Language Arts and then a 4/5 combo Language Arts and Math.
Today went well. And it felt really good to be in the classroom again.
So...you will all have to pardon me as I fall behind on reading and commenting until we get into a groove. It's quite to shift to our schedule ~ me working, Bean back to school with various after school activities, and Bean (oops correction) Bug going to childcare three days a week (the other two with Grandpa). Yikes!!
Know that I am thinking of you all and missing your words terribly! I will do my best to post here and there, but I'm not promising much...today was a 10 hour work day on 3 hours sleep...TIME FOR BED!
