Three of the many things I'm grateful for this week are:
- The new after-school tutoring program at Jonas's school. He's been going on Wednesday nights for about three weeks now. In fact, he is enjoying it so much he asked to join the Monday night group at well. Monday is language tutoring and Wednesday night is help with math. He's in a small group with other Grade Three kids and gets one-on-one time with his teacher as well. It's really boosted his confidence and made school work fun for him.
- Teachers. The teachers at Jonas's school, as well as family and friends. In two words: they care. They've gone out of their way to help him and us. They're positive, optimistic, full of ideas and are always there with a word of encouragement when we need it.
- Other parents who share their experiences. Every child is different but by sharing our experiences we are reminded that we aren't alone and we can glean ideas and hope from each other.
