Shortly after I published the last post about the kids not going to school, they ended up going to school. It wasn’t until closer to noon but they went and that’s positive.
Perhaps all they needed was some time to get settled and work through whatever it was they were dealing with. Either way, they both went back. Elliott was less enthusiastic then Emmett was but he still went back.
I spoke with the office and made some arrangements for Elliott to spend time drawing if he gets too stressed out. That’s a far better alternative than sending him home. The school said that was no problem at all. Hopefully, when he walks out the door this afternoon, he had a chance to draw so he feels like he’s been taken seriously.
If he asks to draw and they refuse, he’s going to be way more resistant to returning to school tomorrow. That’s something I can’t have happen. It’s hard enough right now as it is.
While I can’t predict the future with any certainty, I do know for sure that I’m so proud of the boys for going to school, even if it was a late start.
Progress is progress. ☺
