As most of you know we took in Rosita this past summer. She has been deaf since she was very little. A couple of weeks ago she started school in the city at a school for the deaf called Feliz Manos. (Happy Hands) For the first two weeks they had an adaption period for the kids to get used to what was going on. This week marked her first week of full days. She gets up at 5:15 to get ready and leave for school. She doesn't return home until 3:15 or so. It means long days without a nap so she has been pretty tired at the end of the night. Today Terri (who has been picking her up) said Rosita even slept on the way home. It has been good for her to have interaction with people who actually know sign language! She comes home doing all kinds of signs. Generally we have NO idea what she is saying but it is sure fun to watch her. :) She is going to be 10 this year and is really behind in school so lets hope they can get her up to speed.
