Last week was the wax museum at school. For the third year in a row, Aaron has chosen to represent a strong female character. I'm kinda proud, and kinda hoping it's because of the strong women in his life. I keep trying to live up to what he needs.
First year he chose Amelia Earhart, second was Helen Keller. This year was Eleanor Roosevelt.
Now, every child at his school is severely handicapped. It's the prime requirement for enrollment there. Federal law requires a child be educated in the least restrictive environment (LRE) possible, and this is pretty much as restricted as possible without being confined to home/hospital education. In short, none of these kids are at "grade level" so to speak. (In spite of the fact that I got an invitation to test my sixth grader for the ALL program, Advanced Learning Lab, the honors program in the district. Whatever.)

after his vaccine. I think
he was relieved it was so
much easier than an IV!
