End of the year school picnic 3 SpEd classes at park!
Yesterday was the end of school picnic. There are 3 SpEd classes at my GD school and they went to the park. It was fun for all of them there are only about 25 kids total. GD knew that we were going to be there and the funny part was we were in the turn lane and the 2 buses carrying the kids were right behind us. Anyway she was so excited and looking around for us (Papa and Me) that I was standing about 10 feet from her and she didn't see me right away then when she did I had to brace myself as she threw herself at me grabbing me around the waist and at 8 weighing 104 & me 114 she will knock me over if I am not ready for it. She did the same to her Papa and I had warned him to brace for it and he didn't listen, she almost knocked him over, he staggered a little. I just had to tell him "told you so!" The whole time that we were there she would go play then come running back to ask if we had seen her doing this or that, then she would sit next to her Papa and hug on him like she was afraid he would disappear, then suddenly she would be hugging me then run off to play some more. The kids had so much fun and it was a rare sunny very warm day. They played all over the huge grassy area, the playground was closed for repairs, there were parents, grandparents, teachers, aides, and bus drivers trying to keep tabs on all of them. There were only a couple of incidents which was great as the kids had so much stimulis going on and some of them do have a problem with that, they have 2 for sure maybe 3 that can become violent when overload sets in. The one little girl that it happens to the most often was actually so well behaved that I thought about asking the teacher if she had been sedated (haha). They had one little boy that didn't even last 5 minutes before he had to be removed and that went on several times before they got him settled probably 2 hours. My GD was doing really good except we couldn't get her to sit for just a few minutes to cool off and drink more water, then about 45 minutes before we had to leave she began to get difficult she wasn't listening, she even tried to talk back to us once, she also went toe to toe with one girl, then she didn't want to share. She was going into overload and when we were ready to leave I made her go with me to the bathroom so that she wouldn't have an accident, she told me that she just did and I knew she didn't because of where the bathroom was. Good thing I did as she would have had an accident, after taking her back to the group I told her teacher what was going on with her because that isn't her normal behaviour and I wanted them to be aware of it, there are only a couple of other kids that are as big and strong as she is and at very rare times she has pushed and hit and I didn't want her to do that and hurt one of the other kids. She came home as excited as she had been at the park, and it almost an hour to get her to sleep last night.
Last day of school is the 18th and 1/2 day.
