Someday soon my camera and computer will be in the same room together. Until then, I'll just give a quick update.
School has started up again, and the kids are slowly getting back in the groove. They're more resilient. I think it'll take Art and I longer to readjust to the hectic schedule.
We've moved Mim back to half-days all week, because none of us could take the thought of all the drama we would experience every Tuesday and Thursday. Of course, this means Mim and I have to just hang out in W'ville for 3 1/2 hours on those days, but it's preferable to her crying so much she throws up. I felt so bad for her teacher!
We got their second 9 weeks report cards today, and they both did well. Of course, it's Pre-K and Kindergarten, so I wasn't exactly expecting them to be ineligible or anything. They had Satisfactory and Outstanding on everything except "Controls Feelings" for Mim. (See previous paragraph for proof) and "Listen's Well" and "Responsible" for Zaya. He had outstanding in Obeys and all those other things, so it's just a matter of him being lost in La-La land. (Or character land, more like)
I can handle that. I would infinitely rather have my children be overly sensitive, or overly imaginative than be rebellious or cruel in any way.
Now if I just had someone to give me a report card. I know I would get an A in "worries about children" and "tries to please everyone," but I'm failing miserably in "keeps a clean house" and "cooks wholesome meals." I'm also not doing to well in the "reads edifying non-fiction books instead of more Jane Austen." I've worked my way through the three big ones recently, (P & P, S & S, and Emma) and started Mansfield Park this afternoon. Bad girl. F.
