Hank and Bear have had a much needed haircut but I don't seem to have a photo of it. Bear must have had his hair pulled while the groomer was brushing him because he literally almost chewed a hole in his leg after his appointment. He has had a cone on for almost two weeks because he won't leave it alone. Again no photos because along with no blogging I apparently can't take a picture either. He is healing up although a big patch of fur is off his leg. He doesn't even seem to mind the cone anymore, that is how long it has been on.
We are waiting the final copy on some educational testing for this cute boy. His school is not understanding him. Teachers are amazing and dedicated but they just don't understand the way his brain works. It is frustrating for me to see assignments and tests returned with bad grades because of specific wording of the questions or because he did not complete the busy work on time.
This is one of those examples. The vocabulary word is compile.
Please compile a list of two items you would like on your ice cream.
LB: Mom I don't like anything on my ice cream, I like vanilla ice cream and that is it.
Me: Okay, please compile a list of two items Mom would like on her ice cream.
LB: Mom you can't eat sugar, you don't eat ice cream.
Me: Okay, please compile a list of two items Dad would like on his ice cream.
LB: Oh, Dad likes Oreos on his ice cream, do you think he would like skittles?
Do you see the issues? His brain just does not work like everyone else. He would have been stuck on this problem and not been able to finish the assignment if he had not been at home and the problem was reworded. He is unique and wonderful but not a neurotypical child and frankly the public school system does not do well with a non-neurotypical child in a regular classroom. I am still searching out options for him for the rest of the year and frankly until he graduates from high school.
Just because I post this photo every year I had to post it again even though we are well past Halloween. Little Buddy was a Minecraft Zombie but for some reason those photos did not download on my computer. Imagine a 100% polyester zombie body with a big square mask that looks like a green cube and there you have it. We were the only ones trick or treating in my neighborhood. Most people had a bowl of candy on their porch or had their lights off. Still my little boy thought it was fun to walk around in the dark and ring peoples door bells.
