The last day of school!!!! DS will be home in less than 3 hours.

It will be so nice to have him home where I can keep a watchful eye on him. Although, we did not have one problem with a reaction of any kind this year in school, it was heaven.

How did your children do this school year with reactions?

Feels good to have them home and under our watch again doesn't it?
Our year was pretty reaction free, but was it due to safeguards or luck? Probably both. I learned of dangerous scenarios and halted them on the spot...who knows what might have happened if I were not in the right place at the right time...ugh.
At anyrate, I am glad she's home!!!

our last day was yesterday. I can't say we were reaction free...he had an episode at a school sponsored basket ball game(they served bags of peanuts!!!) he also got welts around both of his eyes one day at the pf table! And he missed 3 days of school from a horrible allergy induced asthma attack in April(plus a few other close calls).....I am hoping his 504 will reduce the number of reactions, hopefully. I am glad this year is over, it's been a ROUGH one to say the least!!!

Two weeks left, and they are a very busy two weeks.
It includes one school trip (risky area for his allergy) that I cannot attend. It might include a second trip which I will be able to attend.

We successfully survived 1st grade! Not a single reaction. Actually we have been reaction free since 13 months - knock wood.
Only bad think that happened this year was the discovery that PA son's twin brother is also PA. But that just means there will be 2 peanut free 2nd grade class rooms next year. 2 504's, etc.
I've met original PA son's teacher for next year, and she is great. She's already asking me questions - which to me means she's thinking about it and worried. The newly PA child is either going to have the same teacher he had last year, or a new hire - not sure yet.
We always schedule our 504 meeting about 2 weeks prior to school beginning. So I have the summer off - yay!

FINALLY, our last day today.
This year was a bit hairy for us. We skipped school on Friday because they had a nutritious luncheon to tie up their cirriculum on Healthy Eating. I had to work and didn't feel comfortable sending DS to school.
Today I went to get meds from nurse and she was all huffy with me and her normal crabby self. she's very upset with me because I reported her about the protocol disaster day.
I just learned that she will be retiring within the next 2 years. Of course, we only have two years left in this school. Figures!
I have a 504 meeting for the first day of school next year. Surprisingly, the lady at the BOE and the principal separately told me they thought 504 would be a good idea for DS.

We've been out for almost 6 weeks now. I think we had a great year without any reactions. Last year was pretty rough with tons of "angry skin" as we call it, but nothing serious.
We'll be back to school in just a few more weeks so we're already preparing fo next year.
