School is underway and going well...

Well, Caitlyn started school on the 10th. So far things are going well. She loves going to school! I am excited to announce that we were able to get Caitlyn a 1:1 aide for school! We are thrilled that she has this, and think it will make a huge difference in her ability to participate! We are looking forward to just sitting back and enjoying this year of preschool. I know the time to think about next year will sneak up on us, and I'm not ready for that. I just hope that everyone is able to see her potential in the next year. We will not give up on Caitlyn's academic abilities, and will not let anyone else give up!

We are awaiting the results of our stroller claim. Here is a picture of what we are asking for. At 41 inches tall, she has completely out grown our umbrella stroller, and has about an inch before she outgrows the travel system stroller. Those that know Rett Syndrome will laugh as hard as we did when we found out they want to know why Caitlyn can't MANUAL propel a wheel chair! Even if she could learn to push those great big wheels, can you imagine her going like half an inch in between mouthing her hands? just picture that...

Well, I'd like to leave you with some recent pictures of a princess...(Taken by Thomasina Cooper)

Deep in thought

And this one...because you can't get much more "Rett" than eating that hand..
