Going to School...

Big news! We have decided to enroll Talan AND Trista in St. Rita's School for the Deaf. As most of you know, Trista has severe hearing loss. She is at a perfect age to start learning how to effectively communicate. I can tell she is getting frustrated and really wants to tell us what she's wanting/feeling, but she isn't able to communicate. St. Rita's is amazing. After touring the facility, it was clear that this was the place she needed to be.

Talan is not hearing impaired, but we feel it is important for him to learn how to communicate with his little sister. He will be in the Montessori Preschool program this year and then will transfer over to a "regular" school starting in Kindergarten. He started school last week (he's doing awesome) and Trista will be starting tomorrow. It is all so scary, but I know they will be in the best place possible.

Sorry it's such a short post, but I've got tons of emotions going on right now. Trista has never been taken care of by anyone except immediate family members. Her poor teacher...let's just say she already has a BIG file full of Trista's medical information. :)

Please pray that she does well tomorrow. I'll keep you updated!
