It's been a while...
The school year is almost over, and both of the kids are doing great-- Jessica recently got an award for discipline. Shane is also doing well -- his teacher is SUPER good at focusing on the good behavior and ignoring the bad. They both went with their classrooms to a field trip at Splash-- a local indoor wave pool, both of the kids had a great time-- and both came home with their brand new swimsuits.. and towels! :) (Last time Jessica went on this field trip she lost her brand new swimming suit!).
Just yesterday we had a family gathering -- and it went REALLY well... Shane did a great job of interacting when asked, getting and serving his own food! After we were outside and ready to gather to gab some more, Shane came out to play with a dog -- and then stayed to play with the frog that was found!
I went to the Orientation for incoming 6th graders for Jessica-- and I was amazed at how differently the staff interacted with us. When I'm at the grade school it's a community-- the parents and the staff working together to help the kids do their best, At the middle school, I felt like the staff was saying-- go ahead drop off your kids and then later come back and pick them up. It seemed like they didn't want to connect with us-- that they would rather just get our kids, teach them and then send them home.
Ah, well.. it's time to get moving and ready for church. I hope you all have a lovely day !
