Not the Summer We Had Planned

We want to say first of all, it was not a bad summer on our part. It was just the type of summer that got away from us.

We are in progress to publish. We suspect that we will announce the next book in the Fall, but we shall see. What happened? We opened the manuscript we’ve been cultivating for two years and then scrapped every single page except the dedication page. This means that all the illustrations got shifted, and some are under revision to work with the artwork we originally started. On the plus side, we had originally anticipated this new book would be over 400 pages; the revision brought the book down to fewer than 200 pages.

It’s been almost seven years since we’ve gone to a summer conference, but we got the chance to go to Lawrence, Kansas, for KU SOARS. KU SOARS is a summer session driven mostly to the Masters of Education students but parents, self-advocates, and others all participate in the three days of  break outs, cooperative learning, and help new educators walk away with a plan to approach educating all learners. We were quite honored to be at KU SOARS and can’t wait to hear how those educators are doing in the near future.

Renay also has the privilege of working with a Social Emotional Learning program this summer. This is not an easy summer program to help kids who struggle already connect with some

We return with regular blogs on August 15. We are working out some details, but we may change from a weekly blog. We still want to connect with new ideas for the new academic year, but due to pushing our publishing later this year, we will really need to look at what we will need to say in the upcoming weeks.

Have you seen our other resources?

Renay is our connection through . If you’ve not seen it, take some time. This July, we connected with a few self-advocates. Inclusion From Square One will run another month in the near future.

We know the days of summer are precious, but now Back to School Sales are around the corner.
