Okay, this is going to be a quickie. I just didn't want to leave that rant up as my lastest post.
Here's what's up:
The kids are busy, but well. Joseph has a lead in the play, which is coming up fast, so he is gone all the time to practice. He looks tired. Rachael is back in the band "Ms. Understood" and is also in the chorus of the play. So she has practice, too, but not as much as Joseph. They are both still taking voice and both still hoping to hear from Music Theatre Louisville for summer parts. Both are still doing quite well in school. Latest report card on Joseph: A's, and 2 B+'s (in a school where 95-100 is an A) and Rachael, all A's. Daniel is back in soccer, and happy. He is showering daily now...yikes, he'll be 13 in June! Aaron's soccer starts soon and he is doing much better in his reading.
School is still crazy. One step forward, two steps back. I decided to stay in my same position for next year. Yeah, I know. But I don't want to start over again, and going back to regular ed. would be starting over in a way, because I haven't taught a regular class of 20-some kids in 5 years. I also want the chance to start the year off knowing what I know now. One year is not a good litmus test. And I've had 2 people from higher up tell me I'm a good BD teacher and they don't want to lose me, so I must be doing something right.
Spring Break is coming! Thank you, God!!! The kids and I don't have the same spring break, but it always seems to work out. They are going with their dad to Indianapolis on Saturday and staying until Tuesday. Then they'll be here, just schlepping around on Wed. and Thurs., then I am taking Friday off so we can do something as a family. My spring break is a couple weeks later. I take them to school every day, go help serve lunch one day, and do what I want the rest of the day. (tee, hee)
Baron and I talked on the phone last night, for the first time in over a week. It was good to talk to him. That's all for now on this subject. More later. Maybe. But it was a good talk. (smile)
Have a great Thursday, all.
