This school year went by so fast! Maybe its because Jack’s in Kindergarten and watching him grow and learn was so amazing. How far he has come this year is so inspiring to me. For those of you who don’t know Jack was diagnosed with a communication delay when he was 2. He has been in the public school system since them. Everything that Jack learns and achieves he has to work harder for than your typical kid.
This year has had a lot of firsts and some big moments for Jack. His first friend birthday party (more than one), first field trip (went to zoo without mommy), learned to write his name, count, READ and so much more. I am so bored of all the progress he has made this year. And I know that he would not have achieved so much if it wasn’t for his amazing teachers. His general ed teacher was great. But his aides, Ms. Christina, was amazing. She sat with jack every day and helped him stay on task. Plus she was with in his after school reading program. Ms. Grimm was his speech pathologist and she got him answering the what and where questions. Thanks so much!!! Now he can answer me when I ask him where his shoes are. Sarah, the school psychologist was great with him too, and same with Ms. Jespson the school resource teacher. There are so many great teachers in Jack’s corner helping him succeed. I don’t know what I would do without these amazing woman. Oh my, I am crying just typing this.
So to show them how grateful I am to them I made this cute little appreciation gift. You can get the printable HERE. I decided to do this one because it was something that Jack could help me with. And we had so much fun doing it together.

Since Jack has a summer birthday he had an ‘un”-birthday party at his school. I asked him what kind of treats he wanted to take and he said “dinosaurs”. I love that kid. I made this cute little printable because Dinosaur Train is one of his favorite shows.
He loved it and so did the other kids.

He was being really goofy when I took the pic.
