Of course it was also Friday night, pizza and movie night, how can it not be happy! It is definitely the one night we can count on to be fun, relaxing family time.
I think that from now on we will have to constantly stay on top of her, make sure she is working at her best pace at school and that the necessary accommodations are being made before things get too overwhelming. Her teachers really are trying to help her. They have been kind, understanding and flexible. I think everything just gets "lost" in the translation between school and home. Today, her teachers started a new homework communication sheet with her. This is a great idea! I think it will definitely help. Elena continues to try so hard to keep up, sometimes to her own detriment. We don't want her hard work and determination to prevent her from getting the rest and exercise she also needs.
As we think about Elena and her struggles, we still can't believe that we will have some of the same battles to fight with Olivia. It's hard to see the big picture right now. There seems to be so much work ahead of us for both girls in terms of their learning.
Please continue to pray for us:
*to have a clear frame of mind
*be able to find the best resources to help our girls
*figure out a reading remediation program to use at home with Liv
*and for us to have the patience and stamina to do it all
Thanks for continuing to check in on us. It has been such a very long journey.
