Pre-school update - The past 2 weeks

So the girls have been going to pre-school for 2 weeks now.  And all has been going well.  We have a good routine going with getting them up early in the morning, getting Haley on the bus to school and driving Rachel to school.  It has been an adjustment for Thomas and I with getting up early to get the girls ready for school.  We are not morning people!  But we will do what it takes to get Rachel and Haley to school because they seem to like it and they are already learning new stuff.  Rachel is being introduced and working on coloring, letters and colors.  I already have some of her artwork to hang on the fridge!  She is continuing to learn sign language as well as continuing to work on speech.  Rachel and Haley still have their speech therapist come see them 3 times a week at home.  In Haley's class the teacher is working on getting Haley to feed herself.  Her teacher is optimistic that she will be able to do it by the end of the year.  It is definitely harder for a child who is blind to learn how to feed themselves.  Haley's teacher is also working on potty training.  Haley has already had her school pictures taken at school.  Rachel's school already has sent home fundraising info and school t-shirt order forms.  Things are in full swing for the new school year!  Overall, pre-school is doing good for Rachel and Haley and I look forward to reporting more updates in the future on what they are learning.

Here are a couple of pictures from this weekend:

  1. I have never seen if they have had a Cerebral palsy diagnosis but potty training when they have CP or similiar are SO much harder .Good luck!

  2. Wonderful news! I'm very happy to know that they enjoy pre-school and are already making progress. Congratulations, they look so cute (as usual)!
