    Back To School Starting Year Four

    Just over two weeks ago Ethan returned to school to start year four. Our summer holidays passed quite quickly and Ethan was soon asking about school. He was happy about having his school routine back. This year Ethan is in a new class and has a new teacher. We are keeping everything crossed that this will mean he doesn’t start his throwing again. Year four has started off being quite busy for Ethan. They are already horse riding once a week and they have the chance of extra swimming lessons which means they start this week too. I’m sure they will soon start the preparation for the Christmas concert as…

    Saying Goodbye To Year Three

    This past school year Ethan completed year three. His first year in the junior section of the school. It started of well but his behavior becoming very challenging and we have had a tough year. I think that perhaps Ethan wasn’t placed in the correct class for year three. I know they were worried about the sensory side of things for Ethan. Ethan has always been a sensory seeker and he would need time in his day to have that need fulfilled. We do believe that Ethan is actually a very bright boy he just can’t express that due to his lack of speech. Ultimately Ethan has actually proved this…

    Our Beautiful Boy Now You Are Eight!

    Dear Ethan, This month you tuned eight. Eight! It feels like such a big number, so close to ten and the double-digit numbers I remember craving to reach when I was a child.

This did mean you were able to go on your very first residential camping trip. That adventure happened last week and…

    Swimming 50 Metres Independently

    Ethan’s swimming journey has been quite a long one. We have been taking him to swimming regularly since he was two years old. This has been with mother and baby lessons, and then moving him on to a special needs swimming club. He has also had lessons at school and little by little he has started to swim independently without armbands or woggles. In June last year Ethan proved that he could swim a width of the pool and was awarded his 10 metre certificate. Before Christmas he added even more to his swimming achievements. Ethan gained a certificate for swimming 50 metres. I am so proud of our little…

    Young Writers Award and Publication

    When we returned from our holiday Ethan had a letter waiting for him. This isn’t something unusual in our house as the children do tend to get more letters than us. Normally they are appointments or reports that need to be kept in a safe place. Ethan has more paperwork that I dare to count. This letter was different though it contained a certificate. A certificate for a talent for writing. Ethan had written an original piece of creative writing and it was selected for publication in a young writers anthology. Now I must admit my first response to this was that is was sent to the wrong Ethan. There…
