I took these pictures when we first got to the park. Before we played on the playground and before we tried to leave and I realized I had locked my keys in the car. Like I mentioned yesterday, it wasn't too bad. We waited for about 15 or 20 minutes and then "Mr. Randy" from the tow truck company came, chatted with the kids for a minute, and opened up the van for me in less than 2 minutes. I really need to get a spare key (they're expensive because we have to get it from the dealership).
Yesterday was also Silas' last day of speech class for the year. We love (like love, love, love) his speech teacher. She is so sweet and encouraging and he absolutely adores her. We'll miss her over the Summer, but I'm so thankful that speech has turned out to be such a blessing. I was so nervous, not knowing what to expect.
Right before the new year I had mentioned my concerns about Silas' speech to our pediatrician. He said that he would grow out of it and said he didn't speech, but I could get him evaluated if I wanted to. I'm glad I did and was encouraged by both the woman who did his evaluation and by his speech therapist that I did the right thing. I know that maybe he would have just grown out of it, but I don't want him to feel frustrated or angry during those times that we can't understand what he's trying to tell us. I feel so frustrated and sad for him when I can't understand him. I love that he's able to grow in this area and is in such a loving environment.
