Yesterday Anna went back to school, which coincided with the rest of the students returning from winter break. This was her first day back since September 20th, and she was really anxious. She had only had a couple of weeks of 9th grade before we got the call, and now she was starting all over again.
Thankfully, she had a good day. Although for separate subjects, she's in a cognitively impaired classroom with the same teacher for the majority of the day. She's the same teacher who came to the house for her homebound services, so she know where Anna is at right now. In her general education class, her teacher is a really good friend of the family, so she is very fortunate in that regard, too. Coming back in the middle of a trimester would be difficult otherwise.
We decided to follow the advice to have her only go for a half day the first few days to get her used to the schedule again, and that turned out to be a good call. She took a three hour nap in the afternoon!
I am thankful that we are starting to get back on a schedule of sorts. We need that after several months of Saturdays!
