But I got a run in of 3.88 miles in 60 minutes. A routine of a 3minrun to 2minwalk for the whole hour. Which damn amazing for myself right now.
I've always known that when reviewing activities on a treadmill that you should not believe that the treadmill's total of calories burned. Right? This is what the treadmill had at the end today:
|440 calories burned|
|997 calories burned.|
Yesterday we had the little one's annual IEP meeting where we go over her progress and talk about the next year and the extended school year. So apparently my little one is being all little rock star for them. Doing things that surprises them everyday.
She is going beyond the goals of 4 minutes on task/4 minutes of break. She's going to about 15 minutes on task/2minutes of break. The day before she sat with her teacher for 30 minute and attended to an activity. Amazing.
Then they talked about how much the IPad has helped her and how at first she didn't like that it didn't have her games on it but then realized she could use it to get what she wanted.
They are very, very excited by the words that have been popping up in her vocabulary. They all believe it won't be long before she has a big explosion of language.
They talked about how she is recognizing other children in her class and recognizing when they are gone. We talked about how everything with her is routine, routine, routine. If something is amiss her whole day is turned around.
I was happy to find out that the extended school year will be at her normal school and she won't have to go 1 town over for the classes. But we learned that the summer classes start right after the last day of the school year and she'll have a month long break before the fall session starts. I am hoping we can squeeze more speech therapy sessions in during that time so she'll have something to do while her sister is at day camp.
I know some people dread IEP meetings and I don't blame them at all. Some school districts suck ass. But we've known these people for 3 years now because we dealt with them with our oldest and they all seem like they want the best for her. We also got a compliment from her teacher saying she knows the reason she's progressed so far is because of what we are doing with her at home. Which then my husband reflected to me. Saying it was because I do all the grunt work with her. It was nice. Recognition from her teacher/therapists is nice but it was also wonderful to hear my husband give me the credit. It made for a good day.
And welcome to the world beautiful little boy Isaac! So happy you are in your Momma and Daddy's arms!
