Michael has been gone for 3 weeks. To Kansas, to school for Beechcraft. It's been a long 3 weeks and we are very happy that he will be home tomorrow. It's really good that he's been gone in order to learn the plane. I can't imagine him actually learning an entire plane inside and out while being here at home. But man. 3 weeks is a long time. But then, as I type this, I think of Michelle and the other military families out there that would LOVE to only be apart from their loved ones for 3 weeks and I am put back into place again. We are lucky that he was gone for only 3 weeks!
I'm just proud that they liked my work enough (or couldn't find anyone else to do it - ROFL) to have me do more work for them! :)
Found more high school friends on Facebook this week - Fun! So fun to see how everyone is after all this time! One was a really fun find - for he has a daughter who is 4 months older than Matthew - and, get this - has Down syndrome too! What are the odds of that?
There's so much talk of all the budget cuts for the state around here. There's talk that Matthew's services might get cut - the music therapists are in for a 53% cut in their pay! :0 Crazy!!!! And there are lots of budget cuts going into the education system too. The Young Learners program is gone next year, they say. And they are pretty sure that Kindergarten will go back to 1/2 days around here too. If that happens, then my hopes of going back as an aide in one of the K classes at the boys school next year might not happen. Not sure how it's all going to shake down in the end.
It's been really warm here this week - getting up into the low 80's. Nice, but reminds me too much that the heat will be here soon!
Well - it's midnight now. I really need to get to bed. The next few weeks are going to be busy too - Matthew's field trip coming up, Ryan's band concert at school, Matthew's IEP meeting for school and his birthday coming soon! Spring break's coming up soon too! :) Nite!
