It started learning that she was going to have a boy teacher. There was nothing worse than a boy teacher!
And then she met Wade. He was very sweet and of course, Kate is a charmer. So they hit it off great. Twice a week, we drove to the campus of ISU to take speech therapy from Wade.
Kate learned about S-T-R-E-T-C-H-Y speech this summer. Slowing down speech is one of the best ways to deal with stuttering. The did this all kinds of ways, but one of the funnest was saying words while stretching silly putty while saying words like "Hippopotamus" and "Elephant."
She also learned about taking good breaths and filling up her lungs with air! They pretended to blow out candles on a birthday cake. That was fun!
She continues to be such a bright, shining star. One session, she took a baby doll around to take to other adults in the building. She named this baby 'Sparkle.' Only one of my kids could be creative enough to name a baby 'Sparkle."
And I took pictures on 2 different occasions. Do you think I can find the pictures? Negative!!!
