August 13- Had my annual talk about how we may be different ages, "grades", sizes, have different strengths, weaknesses, habits, quirks, and passions... and we will embrace ALL of it! I foresee another beautiful, positive, supportive year ahead.
The boys' Tues/Thurs classes are truckin' along... M/W Group math
tutoring sessions in PTC... Running Club on W... Addison is in Aikido
class twice a week... Orchestra/Guitar starts in Sept... Hockey practice
starts in a few weeks... If a SINGLE PERSON says asks me how my kids
will learn to socialize if they aren't in "school", I'll punch 'em in
August 15 - Jeff and Asa have been working on a guitar for the upcoming music class. Hopefully they will have it completed in time!
August 18 - "Olive, it is completely silly to whine about which month it is."
Olive, in her typical matter of fact tone,
"I don't think so."
August 21- Ivey just spelled tree "chree"... Because that's how she says it.
What am I going to do with this girl??
Me: "When we get to the schoolhouse, we need to be quiet so the big kids can concentrate."
Olive:"Yay! Can I concentrate?"
Me:"Yes! Concentrating means paying very close attention!"
Olive: "Oh, I think I'll do something cool instead."
Ivey loved hockey tonight!! She worked her butt off, was sad when it
was over, and wouldn't take off her equipment until we were back home
and I bribed her with cake! I asked her how she learned to skate so
well in such a short time, and she said, "My coach taught me!"
