Quick change before we made the walk:D I love "team work".....LOL
You can tell from these pics that Margo is not thrilled with the anticipation of this "new school" visit!
I went to Carrie's home in order to go along and meet Margo's "shadow" and her Kind. teacher. Her dad, Michael came home from work to go along.....and Milly missed her nap due to the event! Well, it didn't happen:( Margo was so upset by the time we walked to her school she didn't want to go in. Michael carried her inside but she was overwhelmed by the crowd and the new surroundings. She wanted out of there and made her feelings known in a socially unaccepted manner.......SCREAMING!!!
After venturing outside several times during the wait (for relief)......the principal suggested we go down to the SSD room and meet the teachers there, since Margo will spend part of her day with them. She was sooooo nervous and upset...screaming and kicking....just wanting to get out of there. I felt so sorry for Margo and Carrie! I don't know if I could have handled an Autistic child when I was young. I would like to think that I could have.......but it is certainly not a "walk in the park":( Seeing your child or grandchild so frightened and upset just rips your heart out. Carrie knows that after the initial distress....Margo will be just fine. She is great with her and always seems to know what to do in these emergencies:D Bless her heart....God gave Margo a mommy that can deal with this disability!
