Hey ya'll... long time no post. We are finally back in school. It has been a disaster. Stevie's new teacher is .... well, I'll be nice and just say overwhelmed. I'm sure it isn't helping that his behavior has been really bad for the last few weeks. Hopefully as she gets used to him it will calm down. Jesse is doing great in his new high school. I'm finally seeing him get excited about school. He's loving his IT classes, and likes all his teachers, except the PE teacher.. but of all his classes, that one he will do well in even if he hates his teachers, lol. I think the smaller atmosphere is just what he needed, hopefully his success continues.
I did not get the full time job I wanted, but I'm still looking and will be applying for positions that look interesting. In the meantime, I'm still working in the kitchen and I do like it, but additional hours would be a much needed boost to the budget, LOL.
We have been doing a lot of meetings for Stevie's placement. We met with the folks from California in July and they have a really solid program, but they are still in the process of getting set up with the state, so it will take some time for them to be a really viable choice. We finally met with the program in Idaho two weeks ago. This program already has clients from Alaska in their facilities and they have a couple openings in a home that would be a good fit for Stevie. We loved the information on their homes and feel very comfortable with them. Now, we are just waiting to see if they will be willing to take Stevie on. If they decide to proceed, we are probably looking at him moving down there sometime around Feb.
Diet has not been going well, I have gained 5 pounds, but now that we are back in a schedule and getting back on track, I'm sure I'll be able to drop them shortly. Anyways, hope ya'll have had a good summer, I'm glad it's over, LOL.
