as for our big meeting with aarons school on monday ~that didn`t go to plan ~ the out come is they will not giving aaron any extra support or going forward with having him statemented!! ~as they feel he is coping ok at school ~ not the boy we see at home ~ i`m to tired to fight any more ,but for paul it has made him determined to fight for aarons education and well being!! on a positive note , they have given some flexability on aarons homework, knowing how it is effecting the family ~so he can do work on the computer and hand that in.

time for a milky coffee and some nice cake, byeeeeeeeeeeee xx
