Fall Break

Fall Break is next Monday and Tuesday...two days to catch up-er, I mean, get ahead on massive amounts of homework and reading! My friend is having a hen party this weekend. I am not going. :( It's three hours away, and I can't afford to forgo academia for a whole weekend. I also can't afford the gas, as the school was supposed to deduct my monthly tuition payment on the 1st and they haven't done it yet and so $800 might go randomly missing in the night at any time. -_- I am hoping to forgo academia for two weekends coming up, to go to the wedding of the friend having the hen party and the party of another friend. I am just waiting to get 15 new clients the week that I am supposed to go, necessitating that I pitch a tent at the clinic and rewatch therapy videos/write SOAPs/write lesson plans/pick play-doh out of my hair all weekend instead of having fun with my friends.
I continue to work with the clients I currently have, two through early intervention and a group for accent modification. I'm having trouble hitting the right level with one of my little ones...I do things above his level and below his level but keep missing where he actually is. The accent modification is good transcription and data-taking practice, as well as an exercise in finding synonyms on the spot when they inevitably don't know the vocabulary in the readings I pick. ;) My clients are at opposite ends of the spectrum, and they present very unique challenges. I'm really excited to be working with them...only on a beautiful fall Friday morning before a break, it's hard to focus on the afternoon's therapy. ;) Ah well. Happy weekend all!

It is hard to focus when the weather is so beautiful out. I have a hard time getting the right level of M's skills level as well and I am her mom! It can be tricky.

Enjoy your Fall break!
