A weekend away......sort of

Several months ago, our OT told us about an upcoming weekend class at a regional hospital on Sensory Processing Disorder. We immediately jumped on the bandwagon, and started making preparations for both of us to attend. Well......that weekend has arrived, so tonight, we head to the big city for two days of SPD classes. We're staying in a nice hotel and the whole works. Mike and I are both looking forward to the time away together, but it should be interesting to see how we do sitting all day from 8:00-5:00. Although we are both "desk jockeys" to some extent, our jobs are also a lot of "up-and-down". I'm hoping that there will be lots of crowd participation in the afternoons to keep us awake!

In any case, as soon as we heard about the class, we passed the word along to our preschool teacher. She ran with the information, and lo-and-behold....our school district is paying for her to attend AND our school's occupational therapy assistant! This is totally AWESOME! I love our school district!!!

So......while its hardly going to be a vacation, the whole concept of 2 days away from home and the kids sounds pretty darn good at the moment! And we're hoping to gain some new enlightenment to help Jennica, which is the most important thing of all.

And upon returning home next week, we will finally be testing for the amino acid levels in her body. I haven't talked much about this issue, but it is a huge step forward and I'll explain more on this next week!

Have a great weekend!
