School Schedule

This year Brayden will be going to school Mon, Tues and Thurs at Catoctin Elementary in Leesburg, which is not our community school of Waterford where Carter and Luke attend.

The bus ride is about 20 minutes.  His bus arrives around 7:00 a.m. at the end of our driveway.  Only one other child is on his bus (who is not in his class).  Then in the afternoon, his bus arrives home around 12:15 p.m.

Brayden is in the same class as the last two years.  But a bit of a change this year.  There are only three children in the class so far this year.  A new teacher, who was an aid in the classroom.  A returning aid and a new aid, who is came over from the room next door.  3 adults and 3 children (all boys).

Brayden receives physical therapy and occupational therapy once a week.  And has speech and vision therapy as consult.

Our goal is for Brayden to go to school on Wed as well.  We will see how he does for the first semester then discuss adding the fourth day.

I like the routine of school for all my boys (and myself).  Brayden gets to participate in fun activities that bring out a different side in him and help him mature and learn in his own way.

Second day of school:
1.  Major blowout diaper, came home with different clothes on.  I opened his backpack to find out why...and it was not pretty.
2.  He had art!  Did a little finger painting.  Oh how I love it!
You can see how tired his eyes are when he arrives home.

Emily has the same school schedule, except she also goes to therapy on Wed/Fri. Glad to hear it is working out so far. I love the picture of Brayden with his artwork. He is looking more and more grown up!
