Back to School!!!

Lily went back to school today!  She's been wanting to return, which is a great sign, but I really didn't know if she could handle it.  She's in the middle of IEP testing, and it feels like we're miles from the stability I want to see.  But part of what may help her is getting back to some sense of normalcy.  If I communicate confidence in her ability to handle school, or social situations, she's more likely to share that confidence.

So she's enrolled in only three classes - but that's a huge victory!  And she had a good day, she liked being in class and didn't need to be rescued - to leave early.  I was able to work a couple of hours, and I'm feeling good about tomorrow.

I don't imagine we'll progress without any hiccups, but I know I need to expect success so we have a shot at it.
