Happy New Year All!

Wow! 2006!!! Can you believe it????? The time flies these days. Wishing everyone a VERY happy New Year!!!

I wanted to share my current research venture with all of you. We are looking into possibly homeschooling Bam-Bam. I am absolutely terrified and excited at the same time. The amount of information out there on homeschooling is overwhelming but my main concern of course is homeschooling a child with Autism. That presents very new and real differences from regualr homeschooling ventures - especially in regards to reporting to the school district each year. Following his IEP, therapies, etc will all be something VERY new and VERY different to tackle. I am mainly concerned about not being able to do what is best for him to help with his development. I am more concerned though about him being in a general special ed class in kindergarten. So for now he is going to remain in his second year of ESE PreK in his Autism language based class and then probably do a third year in PreK before going into kindergarten. SO I have some time to really look into all of this. Any suggestions for reading, websites, whatever would be greatly appreciated from anyone.

On another note, hubby just called to tell me he got the playoff tickets for Sunday to go see the Bucs!!! Ticketmaster had them onsale this morning at actual decent prices. So we got 2 tickets in the first tier in a decent enough area for the cheap price for Sunday and will go see the game against Washington this weekend!!! Woo HOO!!!!!! So excited!!!! :) Look for us near the Pirate Ship when the cannons blast!!! :)
