4 OUT OF 6 STICKERS
Last week was very strange. Monday was a holiday and Tuesday Jacob came home after filling the learning resource room with vomit. So we expected the rest of the week to be rocky, as Jacob can sometimes take a week to get back into the routine of school, especially after an illness or holiday.
Wednesday was about half and half. Jacob had homework from the morning session because he simply refused to do the work in class. All he had to do was colour a picture of a polar bear, which isn't that hard when you think about it. But his afternoon was very good and he did all of the harder work in class. I don't know what the problem with colouring is, but Jacob never wants to colour pictures.
Then a miracle happened. Jacob had a great morning and afternoon. His day was so good that his teacher came out and told me that this was one of his best days all year. What a good feeling. It was so nice to see Jacob exiting the school with a huge smile. We tried to reward him with a family outing, but he just wanted to relax at home. Having Asperger's and behaving must make a kid tired because Jacob fell asleep right away when he went to bed which is unusual.
