Since we are freaked out, I mean 'concerned' parents, I sent a little e-mail to Kaylee's teacher to check up on her. As you will see, there was no reason to be freaked out/concerned. This is her response:
Kaylee is doing great! She has many friends. The kids want to help her with everything. Sometimes too much, so we've been working on when to help Kaylee. She pretty much does everything on her own though.
I am trying very hard to understand everything she says. Yes, I know it's difficult for her when she has to repeat herself a few times for me to understand and I feel terrible when I can't understand what she needs. But the more I am around her, the more I understand.
She has been very happy at school, especially at recess. Sometimes after recess she is very tired and puts her head down while sitting on the floor, which is fine with me. She goes nonstop at recess. I'm willing to bet she'll get stronger this year! We have worked out a system for recess. She has a group of girls that play with her regularly and they put her walker at the bottom of the slide so she can get up right away then, Kaylee can walk back to the stairs and do it all over again. It works out nicely and they all play very well together. We have a double slide next to each other so she can go down right next to another student which is her favorite.
