I also had a small win in terms of Phoenix's coding which wasn't changed like it should have been. After a few calls to Alberta Education I was presented with an IPP with the new code at the P/T conference. That felt wonderful. It was a nice acknowledgement that even though I am a parent putting up a fight, that I actually know what I'm talking about. Winning.
We had a big family party this past weekend (which I may or may not get to writing about). It was a loud and busy event with a lot of excitement and stimulation. I was very pleased to see her retreating upstairs for some quiet time when the noise and excitement was too much for her. A smart cookie this one is. She also knew to take some toys that she received up away from her sisters so as to have a chance to play with them by herself. Phoenix was incredibly well behaved and had a great time seeing her relatives. She is such a joy.
