First Week of Summer & Friday Follow

It's Thursday night/Friday morning and we are almost at the end of our fist week of summer break.  We haven't done much but to try to adjust to a new schedule.  A schedule which is hard to figure out.  You see when you have a child that is ADHD, ODD and has Anxiety they thrive to have structure and schedules.  But we try very hard to ease the structure and schedule out a bit so that we can relax and enjoy our breaks.  We've made a calendar for him that has all of our daily "outings" on it along with required appointments and of course his daily chores.

He is still going to have tutoring over the summer and I have to say we have the best tutor!  She is going to be a senior in High School this year and will be going to college to be a teacher.  She has the best demeanor with Sam and has stuck it out with us even through some of Sam's worst days.  I am letting her take the reigns over the summer and today was our first meeting with her leading everything.  I have to say WOW!  She had Sam doing Math, Science, and Reading.  He is going to do one Math problem a day as his homework and he has a sheet of finding words hidden in sentences for fun.  Let me tell you that I have now seen something that I have not seen before...Sam couldn't stop working on the hidden words!  He even worked on it all the way home.

Tomorrow we'll be spending a good part of our day at Hawaiian Falls Water Park (thanks Mom and Dad for our season passes!) and I have to say that I can't wait.  In the evening our church has the whole place to ourselves!  It's a way for us all to get together and kick off the summer.  I'll be sure to take the camera and take some pictures for you all to see.

If you are here from Friday Follow....WELCOME!  Let me know that you were here and have followed me and I'll do the same.  I hope you have a great Friday!

Adjusting to new schedules is hard...even with kds that don't need much of a schedule. I can only imagine how hard it is on Sam.

Glad the tutor is so good. It may be hard to see results at times, but God has definitely put the right people in your lives to help you give Sam the support he needs. Praising Him for that!

Have fun at Hawaiian Falls! Alex actually got in the big pool yesterday and HAD A BLAST!! Such a huge change from last summer. :)

Tell Sam that David says hi!
