Today H's teacher called us. She has called a couple times since the beginning of school to talk about his behavior. Today was a bit different, however. H had an AWESOME day! Hurray! When I told him that she had called and what she had said, he covered his mouth with his hand and his eyebrows shot right off his forehead. To celebrate we had some hot carob cocoa. Tomorrow is his day to share with his class. Each student has two days this month to share something about themselves. He decided to bring his Lifebook. We went through it and he decided which pages to leave, and which to remove. Tonight he learned what the word "personal" meant. He removed the pages which included his family in Ethiopia. When I mentioned that these were personal, he asked what that meant. I tried to explain it in a way he could understand, mentioning that some things were hard to talk about, and that if people asked a lot of questions about them, it could make one feel uncomfortable or sad.
