Getting Ready for School!

We had such an amazing day yesterday.

We had the opportunity to get together with 5 other families that will be sending their children to the same school that we are sending Christian. We had 7 children in our basement, all with CIs, and 6 of the 7 were all 2 and under. It was definitely my first time seeing so many children with CIs in one place. It was also my first time as a parent that I knew I would be the only one narrating every single second of my kid's life.

In this group of kiddos, was the other little boy who will be in Christian's class (there are 7 hearing children and 2 deaf kids in the class). They immediately got along great, playing a game of Peek-a-Boo with eachother. I was so happy to get together with these parents, many of whom I've only emailed with. I desperately need to keep up with my signing, as this group of Moms were fast and furious with their fingers, and even one was Deaf and signed. This summer I have become a bit rusty...

How much fun! I can't wait to hear all about Christian's progress at his new school. It sounds like there will be lots of new friends for him -- and you!
