This is a big deal. I know it can be overkill to celebrate each grades graduation but Isabelle is officially finished with elementary school. And I am a wreck, my heart aches in this transition. I don't think she is ready. I know she is not ready. And there is not a clear direction for her schooling. I am torn. She does not fit in a special needs classroom, or "Life Skills" and she does not fit in a typical 6th grade class either. A deaf school... maybe but that is too far from our house. So please pray for me and for her. If it was not for Tam (the most amazing interpreter, teacher, and friend) I would not be considering public schools at all.
These are her two sweet friends, Emma and Alyssa. She had lots of friends in the younger grades but these are the only two to have stuck by her. Amazing young ladies, with sweet compassionate hearts.
The music blasts, the crowd builds outside waiting. And then it happens, the fifth graders file out with the biggest smiles I have ever seen. It was so fun to watch. E and Jack waiting to cheer Bellie on...
Isabelle will be missed by all the staff that got to work with her. She has that effect on ya!
