Jeremiah's school disco was on tuesday. He started leaping about straight away and Isaac was more cautious. He got into it in the end though and although it was more like marching than dancing he had a whale of a time.

Only one week at school before the holidays. In some ways I'm glad there is only 1 week left but on the other hand I haven't done my christmas cards yet or finished my christmas shopping. Jeremiah was a cow in the nativity play yesterday. It will be Isaac's last day at TOG on monday, then the christmas party on thursday. It will be quite emotional I think. Isaac has been going for 3 years and the staff there have helped him so much. I was originally planning to keep him going there until he started school but we are really struggling with transport at the moment and he technically doesn't need TOG any more.
I managed to talk to the reception teacher about Isaac's school needs. I don't think she realised he was that severe to be honest. She is going to talk to the senco about him and she reassured me that if he can only cope with 2 mornings a week at first then that's fine and they won't rush him.
We have a furry houseguest at the moment. A cat turned up last night and we are trying to find her owners without much luck so far. Simon is going to take her to the vet tomorrow to see if she is microchipped.
