Victor came charging up the driveway just now, jumping over ice and snow and kicking at piles of slush.

Good things )

Going back to school on Monday and Tuesday was tough for Vic but he managed it.
Doing his homework the rest of the week was also tough but he made up for it by doing his work during Homework Club and didn't lose any points for having not done it at home.

He had an unsatisfactory on Monday, a good on Tuesday and the rest of the week has been outstandings every day.

Today he brought home his spelling quiz. He got 100%.

I could cry for joy I really could. Before the holiday, he got a 0% on his first quiz.

Now just a few short weeks later, he aced the whole thing. And I thought he was only copying the words and didn't know how to sound them out and wouldn't be able to do it.

I was so, so, so wrong and this is tangible proof that yes, he can DO THIS. He can do school.

He just has to have the right environment and he is finally, FINALLY, where he needs to be.

I'm taking him over to CVS to get him a prize for that perfect score.

Well. Vic starts at the TEACH program on Monday. All fingers crossed.

The classroom was set up similarly to the program he was in in California. The way it's structured is also similar with everything integrated except for particular special needs that need to be done individually.

The doctor we talked to paid attention and connected the dots, in my view, correctly.

It just felt right.

It's a long ride away for Vic but as long as they have a yellow school bus I think he'll be okay. Still. We need to get him a nose-clip for that ride out to Coatesville.

I have hope.
