Halle's school party.

Halle got to go to a summer school party for her class today. She is in a class called spectrum which has 1st, 2nd, and 3rd graders all in the same classroom. I had heard wonderful things about one of the spectrum teachers in particular, Mrs. Ball, and wanted nothing more than for Halle to get her. I used all the ammo I had, letters to principal, email to Mrs. Ball herself, and even the Manwaring name. (THANKS Rachel!! She and Mrs. Ball used to work together.) Anyway, Halle was placed in her class and at first I was really nervous that maybe I did the wrong thing. Maybe Halle needed to be in a class with lots of little 1st grade girls??? However, after meeting Mrs. Ball today and seeing her interaction with the kids, I just know its going to be the perfect fit for Halle. I can't wait for the school year to start and to see the progress Halle is going to make.
