Back to School

Glorious day! This morning, Joey was SO excited to get on the bus and get to school! He was so ready to get back to his life and friends and teachers. Its a momentous occasion: the first day of school.

The real surprise was when he came home. I asked, as usual, "Did you have fun at school today?" and he answered... yes, he ANSWERED... "yes!" I asked him about people he saw and things he might have done. My child can communicate to me about what he did during the day! Its a miracle!

Some days I watch hi mwith other kids and wonder if he will ever be able to blend with his peers, to communicate and connect with them. Then there are days like today, when I think, hey, he's a hard-working, sweet little guy! People like him! He's going to make it!
