Ella wore her hearing aids to school today for the first time. The hearing aid lady (man I really need to figure out her title) suggested that this week Ella only wear them at home and "practice." Well, Ella asked to wear them to school and has done great so I figured why not. I will admit I was super nervous all day, worried she would mess with them, worried she would be overwhelmed by things being a little louder, and worried she would lose them. But all that was for nothing...at least for today...Ella wore them ALL day. Her gen ed teacher said it was like they weren't even there, that she didn't see her mess with them at all. Including gym class!!!! Hooray! I am so proud of her! Also, when I picked her up today a little boy standing in front of her in line said "Guess what? Ella scored a goal in gym today!" So sweet. I am so glad that the kids in her class, kids I know in the school, and kids in Hunter's class fill me in on some of the things Ella does during the day....it's pretty much the only communication I get.
Happy 8th Birthday Colin!
