Having to Say Goodbye....

Last Thursday was the first week in over a year that we didn't have speech with Miss Lindsey in Portland. It's been really hard to try and juggle a full day of school and then a 45 minute drive to Portland and then an hour session. It made for a really long day and ended up being just too much for Noah. Even, though it was only once a week, it was just too much.

Since he's been getting such great help at his new school with speech, we decided that it was time to stop making the trip to Portland and unfortunately say goodbye to Lindsey. It was a decision we had a hard time making. We went back and forth about it for several weeks. But, now that we've made the choice and we're officially done, it feels like the right one. (thank goodness!) It helped, too, that Lindsey agreed with us.

We loved going to see Lindsey. She had lots of fun with Noah and he really liked her a lot. She was completely understanding and helpful about it, too, which helped make it a little easier. And, she told us we could call her with any questions, no matter what, and if we weren't happy with the decision, that she'd work him back into her schedule. Is she wonderful or what?!? So, even though we're really sad to not see Miss Lindsey every week and we'll miss her a lot, we feel like this is the right decision, for now.
