Roundup May 2012

What special or unusual event occurred?

Dye day with the guild

What were my accomplishments this month?

Finished mostly creating training class at work. It was a big job – and just the beginning.

Launched major project at work.

In Wednesday night class with the young ones, the teacher and I continue to deal with a mix of ages and numbers that is not really working. However, I have spoken to the lady in charge, so I have hopes that it will NOT continue for next quarter. I don’t want someone else to have the problems we are having.

Oh, and the problem child? I’ve spoken to the Sunday morning teacher, purely by chance, and she is of the opinion that he is high-functioning autistic; she has the training to recognize it, so I am fairly confident of her correctness. That gives me a clearer attitude; he is not being a willful child, but someone with a disability that we need to work with/around. Now that I know that, I can deal with it.

In the meantime, we now have had two new students come in, sisters, and one of them has the appearance of a Downs syndrome child. She has been remarkably easy to work with, happily.

Either way, this gives us good practice for the special needs children’s miinistry that the church wants to start! God provides.
