“So awesome,” he typed, standing in the kitchen.
“What was your favorite part?”
“We were at home.” (We visited my wife’s family Christmas eve and ran a few errands here and there, but, mostly, Clay hung out in the house, typing “stay here” when we asked what he wanted to do. He enjoyed his downtime.)
My wife followed him up to his room with a question about the coming year.
“What would you like to accomplish in the new year?”
“We would like to ask a question to the school,” he typed.
“What is the question?”
“We would say that we are ready to start typing.”
The unstated question from Clay to his team at school: “Are you ready?”
The answer seems to be, “yes.” After a year of working to set it up, Clay’s teacher and two of the aides in his class are going to begin training to support his typing this week. I can’t think of a better holiday present. Clearly, the little guy is raring to go.
