difficult child is having a great school year! We just had his conference with his case manager. She said that he so personable and well liked. She remarked about how much he has matured and how he has friends all over the school (even though he never does anything with them outside of school). by the way, his report card earned him all As and 2 Bs. (Again his classes are all at a lower level but he is working and trying). He is in a ceramics class and making the coolest projects. He said he gets to be a TA in the class next year. He is involved in a club called Peer Partners. It is a club for those with disabilities and those without. Yesterday he went to a Special Olympics bowling event where there were both kids with and without disabilities. He ended up bowling the highest score from his school-lol. When husband went to pick him up he sat next to one of difficult child's aides. She was going on and on about him and what a good role model he is to others faint. He still struggles incredibly with reading but was actually trying to read a bit by himself this weekend. Starting tomorrow he has has wrestling practice 5 nights a week. This is his second year in wrestling and although he hasn't won a match yet he loves it. While we love seeing all of this and are very proud of him we wish we were seeing more of it at home. He is always taking all of his anger out on me (although I am thankful that it is no longer physical). He follows poor husband around all the time unless he isn't home and then he is the same way with me. He and easy child/difficult child have a like/hate relationship like most siblings. His anxiety is very high whenever we leave him home alone (which we don't do very often).
