    I am so exhausted with this whole process that I feel like I am totally letting the advocates take this on, and I am just a puppet. But I am also ok with that.

    While on vacation, I met with the advocates one day for 6 hours. They are bringing in a 3rd advocate, also. One well versed in civil rights, as they believe Wee has a very strong civil rights suit, if needed. Another day of my vacation was spent on the phone with them, and tracking down a computer and a printer in the boot heel of Missouri, to type, print, and mail a certified letter to the school.

    I got a response to that letter on Friday. An IEP meeting has been scheduled for 8:30am this Friday.

    There is open house at school this week for Wee to see his classroom and meet his teacher, etc, but I think we will stay away.

    I guess I should also say the primary focus of this meeting is getting the school to keep him all day.

    I'm glad you have advocates really helping out. Hugs as I know how draining this is and prayers that his school day becomes all day.

    We are very good friends with the bus mechanic for the school. I talked to him tonight and he said if they won't keep him, to have them send him to the garage. He'll handle him.

    (The sad part is...he would...and COULD)

    I pray to find advocates like yours. And heck, learning to be a mechanic would be a great backup plan!
