Back To School Night
Last night I attended Back to School Night at Nathan's school. He has quite a day and is mainstreamed for part of his socialization skills. There is a group of kids in his 5th grade homeroom class that has taken to him and watches out for him. Tonight when I took him to the library, I overheard soft whispers, "Nathan, Hi Nathan" ... some of his classmates were there and made a point of saying hi. He returned their greeting in his "jibber-jabber language and not one kid made fun of him. Seems wherever we go, there's someone calling out his name. Last month at Spokane's Children's Hospital, a man came up behind and said, "Hey, aren't you Nathan?" It was the uncle of one of Ann's friends that works there. I hardly know two people in town and am beginning to feel left out (sigh). Have a blessed weekend.
