Who else is really happy that it's Friday?!! Well I know that I am really happy! This week was really no fun, I guess I can't say that, I did have some fun this week but the fun events seem to be taken over with the not so fun events. But who cares right?! It's Friday...ok so you can tell that I do care otherwise I wouldn't be talking about it, but let's just say that I've moved on from the school downfalls this week.
Today went pretty well, I had class from 9-12:30 so that wasn't too bad. Then I was able to miss work to go visit the little girl who work with at her new school. It was really interesting to see her in that atmosphere. She goes to a new school that really focuses on ABA style teaching so it's a little different than what we do at Fraser. Yea I don't really understand all of ABA or at least it's hard for me to explain, so your best bet is to google it :) But this new school is just doing wonders for her! She's sitting for long amounts of time and following directions REALLY well! They do a lot of demands followed by a reinforcement-so she does really well. It was a very comfterable setting as well; there are only 7 kids total at the place so 2 of Hailee's teachers were able to sit and walk me through everything that they were working on with her and gave me some really useful information for when I work with her at her house. I figure whatever I can do will hopefully help her. I have to say that I was very excited when I first came in and Hailee saw me she came right up to me and wanted me to pick her up and give me a hug! It made me feel soooo good! And the teachers were excited that she was able to recognize me in the school setting because I had never been there before! So that kind of made my day! She is sooo sweet!
After I left Hailee's school, I headed over to the Mall of America to meet up with Raymond to get something to eat...bad idea...I was in trafic from the minnetonka area to bloomington for a total of 1 1/2 hours...no good...no good. So I did something I never thought I would do..I turned to the a.m station! My Dad has always listened to a.m. and I never thought that I would switch to the a.m side but you can only get too much Christmas music and music talking about a girls hump so many times. So I did it...I listened to 1280-the patriot, and sad to report I really liked it! No wonder why my Dad has always been so relaxed; how can you not be! So I made a.m. pre-set dials and for now they are on the down low (man down low...am I back at high school...oh well, it's ok to reminise).
Well I guess I should hit the sac...it's been a long week!
-Ok so it turned out that it's Saturday now and this entry that I wrote on Friday I forgot to send...so it should be for Friday the 18th...sorry!Posted by at November 19, 2005 7:45 PM
