I’ve had a few of you comment asking where I was. We had a whirlwind spring break and I will write about it when I can actually stay awake.
A few blurbs though….
Bob’s Red Mill Homemade Wonderful Gluten Free Bread was a big hit. So much so that I will be investing in a bread machine to help make it easier. (Any recommendations?) J thought the bread was awesome, especially since we told him we were making it like the Little Red Hen, one of his favorite books. Cinnamon raisin from the same brand is next on the “to do” list.
We made the Pizza rice crust. Either I did it wrong or it wasn’t what I was expecting. Either way, J liked it. Little J, not so much. I will try again one more time and then consider moving on. I found some other recipes I could live with.
We hiked up Piccacho Peak on a moderate trail that is .7 miles each way. They boys led the whole way at a super fast pace. We had a great time and are planning more hikes in the future. J wore his “cactus shoes” proudly.
The boys stayed over night with my parents Friday without me and it was super successful. Do you know what this means? It means that this summer when my mom is off work, hubby and I can have a few weekends to ourselves. 😀
Had a planning meeting with my Assistant Organizers for my Special Needs Moms meetup. It went well and we have a plan for the next month. Met another mom from the group tonight and it was good. The boys all got a long well, when they weren’t ignoring eachother 😉
IEP meeting on Wednesday. This is my first real one. The one they did in November, well I didn’t know what to expect. And since it was just for Pre-K, I just went along with what they said. Sounded good to me. But now we are planning for real. His teacher mentioned last week that she was going to recommend a 60/40 split in favor of special-ed instead of mainstreaming like they mentioned in January. I am actually happy about this because I found out a few weeks ago that the K classes in our district are going to a 24:1 ratio. That would be an absolute disaster for J. That much I know. So wise mommies of the autism bloggy world. What kind of things should be in his IEP? Is there a website I should know about? Email me if you need to. KarameiaKS at netscape dot net.
