Let's get the summer board posts higher. It's been a little slow around here. Feel free to come out of hiding...and share a little about yourself, kiddo's and summer plans.

I'm Jessie. I have three kids. One step daughter Jasmine,who graduated high school and is heading off to college in the fall. Gabe is 5 and starts kindy in the fall, and Zane is 17mo and moves to the toddler 2 room in the fall. I work part time as a respiratory therapist and love having days off to spend with the kids.

Our plans are to hang out by the side of the pool all summer. I am pulling Gabe out of summer school and cutting is therapies back to 2hr/wk with wrap support for social skills to 10hr/wk. Zane also started speech therapy. Gabe needs a break from all his hard work..and I want him to enjoy this summer. He does not know what it's like to not go to school or therapy at min. 3 days a week. It's going to be a good summer. I hope I won't regret pulling him from school, but I just think every now and then you need a break. If he regresses I'm going to feel pretty crumby....but I have good feeling :-)

Our only summer holiday plans are to go to the beach and maybe do some day trips. We're gonna play it by ear.

Any of you guys have fun things planned?

It has been crazy here. Alexis will be starting 2nd grade next year and she will be 7 on July 4th. Sammie turned 5 on May 31, so she will start kindergarten. And K has to wait for school till she is 3 in Jan. She will go to public school, cause she has CP.

Her OT was here this morning and we were out doing sidewalk chalk and then had Popsicles. Next month, her PT will be at the ECI office, so I asked if she can do her OT there that day, too. They have a lot of good stuff there so I can't wait for her Pt and then OT sessions. Her Pt was saying they should have a tricycle K can barrow. So that is good news. I don't have a riding toy for her and she wants to keep up with the older ones. Her Ot is also going to talk to another family about a group class for the 2 girls. I asked today if a class would be possible for her. So that will be fun. She gets OT sessions 2 * a month.

We also have a beach trip planned. My bro and SIL live at the beach. So my parents and my family are going to take the RV and go see them. Dh has to work, but the girls and I will stay in the RV. And the library has a great summer program. So we do that each wed we are in town. Plus any VBS's I can find for them. And we have a little pool for them a couple of times a week. Oh and Alexis is going to camp Thur till Sat this week. She is so excited.
