Zoya's dream came true this morning...She started kindergarten! For months she has been going with me to drop off the other kids off in the mornings and many times she had packed her own backpack and lunch wondering if today was the day mom would let her go. :)
We have been waiting on the IEP Meeting, which was finally scheduled for yesterday. (For those who don't know, an IEP is an Individualized Education Plan, for students who require special ed or extra services). She tested very low developmentally and academically so it was determined she will start out in special ed classes primarily, but will spend 1/3 of her day with typical kindergartners (lunch, recess, computer, PE, calendar/circle time, and music). In the typical class, she has Hope's teacher, and in special ed, she has Joseph's. She was soooooooo excited!
It was about 10 degrees out here, thus the red noses and panicked expression on Joseph's face. I am quite sure his nannies would never have allowed him to go outside in that kind of weather.
I'm sure you are wondering how her first day of school was......
The below picture of the progress reports from Mrs. Riggs will say it all! Let's just say Zoya got a ride on the dirt bike while Joseph watched!
