|This is Debra, Max's "substitute" aide. They have yet to find someone who can fluently sign (long, frustrating story). But she has been absolutely fantastic with Max...so loving and patient. We love you Debra!|
|While Max doesn't yet "drink," he is interested in taking a few sips of chocolate milk at lunch. I love seeing how grown up he is getting his own milk (with some assistance.)|
|Max helps pay for his lunch. (I'm not a big fan of most school lunches, but sometimes we do it for a little variety.)|
|Max cut the entire pumpkin all by himself!|
|We just love having Max's buddy, Dylan, in the same class.|
(Plus he always greets with me such an enthusiastic hug...you gotta love that!)
Helping him is Molly, one of the paraeducators in the classroom. She is fantastic!
(Notice how big some of the kiddos are? They have kindergarteners through third grade students in this class.)
