I think I have become the official non-official spokes-mommy for Evan's school. They held their grand opening for the McKenzie Towne location (which is where Evan attends) and they asked me to speak at the ceremony. I really love this school! I love the staff, I love their training, I love how open they are, I love their "curriculum" and I love that I get to decide how, when, and what my child's goals should be. This particular location that is so close to us is integrated and I am so happy that Landon gets to go next year and reap the benefit of small classes and specialists in the school. Because the teachers are all special needs teachers I know they will have the patience for Landon's "activity". The building itself is AMAZING!!! The floors are all heated because they do so much floor work, the full-size gym has more sunlight than any other room I've ever seen before, and the playground is large and even has a rocking "pirate ship" that Evan's wheelchair can go in with all his friends. They have a sensory room, where everything lights up, a music room, and a very large library that makes me want to lay down on the mini stuffed couches and read.
After my speech they had Evan come up and cut the ribbon with the BIG scissors. He felt so special, and so he should!! We then did a couple of interviews, which we weren't able to watch last night and haven't been able to find online. When we do find them I'll post them on my blog.
Besides me and my boys being thoroughly congested it was a great morning!!!
