Snow to the Rescue!
January 31, 2010 7:54 PM by Devon Alley
It's amazing to me how every single time A. is having a bad week at school, the snow magically appears and notonly cheers her up by providing her tons of fluffy, white winter weather to play in, but also by conveniently shutting down the local school Read More...
Meetings with Therapists; Progress on a Bad Day
January 28, 2010 8:16 PM by Devon Alley
As a sidenote, I'm going to begin referring to Aisling as simply "A." in my posts. At some point, I will retroactively go through the old entries and edit out her name -- just because the more I think about the possibility of her schoolmates looking her Read More...
Delays Due to Illness, and Discovering the Internets!
January 24, 2010 2:49 PM by Devon Alley
My apologies for the delay in getting this entry up and out there. Thursday afternoon, I found myself extremely under the weather, and I'm just beginning to get my bearings again. That being said, I'm still not up to 100% capacity, so this may be a bit Read More...

IEPs, FBAs, and BIPs -- Oh My!
January 6, 2010 9:11 PM by Devon Alley
Yesterday evening, while going through Aisling's backpack, I discovered a notice to attend an IEP meeting at Aisling's school... the very next day. I knew we were planning on meeting fairly early in the new year, but I hadn't heard a specific date yet, Read More...
Old Friends
January 4, 2010 7:25 PM by Devon Alley
Over the holidays, Aisling and I had the opportunity to spend a little time with some very old and very close friends of the family -- Erin and Dustin. Both of these people have been close friends of mine since high school, despite the fact we all lived Read More...
