Tomorrow is the IEP!

Tomorrow is Dylan's IEP.  An IEP or individualized education plan establishes which special services a child needs and how those needs will be met in the school system.  I toured two schools last week however, upon meeting with the coordinator at the first school she told me that they were recommending that Dylan be placed in a school that has a full time nurse which only gives us one option.  Wait, did I hear you correctly MS. Coordinator/Facilitator, ONE OPTION!?  Then we were told that this first school only had a nurse on Wednesdays so he couldn't go here anyways.   WHAT?!  Wait a minute, Dylan does not require nursing care, he is not on medication, he does not have a feeding tube, he does not have epilepsy, why would he need a full time nurse?  She wouldn't tell me, only that we would talk about it at the IEP.  ARGHHHHH!!!   I already feel defensive.  I feel as though I am going to have to put on my mommy armor and go into battle.  Maybe it won't be that bad?  I am going to try to go into the meeting tomorrow with a smile and come out the same way.  

Ok, so before I get myself all worked up about tomorrow I am just going to post some random cute pics of the kids from the last week.  I will post after the meeting with the outcome.  Send me some good prayers. :)

I love this, he just loves his big sis and wants to be where ever she is.
Peek a boo!
Dylan's gait trainer finally came, it only took SIX months!  Thanks again to everyone who participated in the fundraiser over the summer so that we were able to get this for him.

 Working on some spoon feeding, before this pic he was actually getting the food in his mouth using his spoon.  He still would rather just make a mess.
 Our little goof-ball
Our little animal lover.  Dylan always finds his way over to any furry friend, this is Cowboy, my mom's dog.

 Waiting for the PT to come and going through the mail, I think this one is a bill by the look on his face.
 Dylan, always the perfect patient.
 Lukey got his first haircut this week.  This is before...
  ...and after, thanks Auntie Kerri!
