Getting ready for Kindergarten!
Just wanted to post a quick note to let you know that allergy planning for Ainsley's first day of Kindergarten is well under way. She starts on Monday, 8/23, so right now I'm busy finalizing a letter to the parents of kids in her class complete with a safe snack list, confirming with the nurse how many Epi-Pens/how much Benadryl I need to bring to school, thinking about what sort of safe snacks I will buy to stock in Ainsley's classroom in case the class snack isn't safe for her, etc. We will have our second 504 meeting to finalize the plan this week (not sure when yet). I feel so much calmer about this than I thought I would. I think it's because Ainsley really is ready for Kindergarten, and is mature enough to take on some responsibility for keeping herself safe. I am very excited about how she'll like Kindergarten and about all of the new friends she'll make!
