Roller skating

Here is the only photo that I was able to take of Joe roller skating at Jack's birthday party on Sunday.

Joe's Social Circle Party

I brought cookies to decorate for the last meeting of Joe's social circle.  He has been meeting with 4 kids and the school social worker every week to create a social circle for him outside of classroom activities.  Two of the kids were absent so at the last minute we invited Leah.

Joe working hard at school

Here are some photos that Joe's teacher has posted on her blog of Joe working hard at school.  He is proud of himself because the computer work is independent.  He sits down and types up the sentence that he reads.  Joe is making tons of progress this fall!
