Jackson's Graduation

2 weeks ago, Jackson "graduated" from the morning school that he has attended all year.  He will be moving on to full day special needs preschool at the local elementary school next year.  I know that is exactly what he needs - to be with teachers and specialists that are more qualified to work with him- BUT we will miss this school and these teachers SO MUCH!! They have been wonderful to work with and you can truly see how much Miss Dawn loves her students (and vice versa!! I swear Jackson has a little crush on her ;)  I started crying at the end of the year picnic when she started telling me how much Jackson has touched her heart this year and how she wishes she could have him again next year. I'm tearing up again just thinking about it!!

Anyway, here is a short video from their graduation. Jackson was (predictably & understandably) very upset by the crowd and noise, but with one of the teacher's help he got through the song.  He is on the far left.

That is so great that the teachers were so good with him. I hope he has great teachers next year too!

How precious! It means the world when teachers love our kids. :) Congrats to Jackson and I am glad my photos weren't the only ones that were pathetic. Hope you are feeling well!

My son had awesome special ed preschool teachers...it was so sad when he "graduated" last month.

They grow so quickly don't they?
