Four days a week, our daily routine includes a trek to Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for the Dyslexia Program that Libby attends.
I have been meaning to post what a morning looks like since we started doing this last September...so here it is.
We load up the car at 8:30.
On a good day, we can be at the hospital in 45 minutes.
This was not a good day and the reason we leave at 8:30(we were actually sitting still when I took the picture).
This was the latest we have ever gotten there. We parked at 9:57....her teacher comes for her at 10:00, so we had to run.
The first of two elevator rides on the way up.
Libby's teacher meets us in the waiting area by the second elevator. She was there when we got off the elevator and Caroline had serious need of a tissue, so I didn't get a picture. Libby heads off with her teacher and we head down to do school.
We spend the next hour in the main waiting area/check-in area/temporary cafeteria area of the hospital.
Today, the kids are reading their two chapters of Abel's Island.
Here is the big distracting contraption that we don't even notice anymore. ;)
After they finished the chapters and we discussed them, they started brainstorming to write a three paragraph paper on perseverence.
Caroline is writing about Helen Keller and got started right off on her outline.
Joseph had a bit more of a mental block.
Normally, we would have done several things....handwriting and math included. Writing that much is quite time consuming for them and that is all we did today.
After an hour, we headed back up to get our Libby.
Mrs. Putnam said that Libby and her two classmates did incredibly today and she hopes it rains everyday. ;)
Then we are back in the car for the ride home. We are home by noon.
