Decision Made and Fast Changes

On Friday, we went to see the proposed new school for Alex.  The program looked good and so by Friday afternoon, the switchover was planned.  He did a half day on Monday at the new school and it went well.  Today is the first full day.

Dave and I have to drive him and pick him up, as it will take some time to arrange transport.  I get the feeling that the staff at the previous school are upset at the rapid transition.

It was a difficult decision.  There were a lot of factors to consider and as I said in my last post, I'll probably never be able to be certain if I've made the right one.  But this is the decision least likely to cause problems down the road and I'll admit that I've been doing this long enough for that to be a big factor.  I know how easy it is to push Alex past what he's comfortable with and how hard it is to get back on track after that.

Now I have to deal with the fact that I probably missed half of my work hours last week trying to deal with this mess, which means working overtime this week.  Which means not as much writing time, which makes me sad and irritable.  

Give it another week or two and then we'll know how Alex is settling into the new program and if there will be any long term consequences.
