We went to the zoo the other day and I took out my camera to take a picture but the battery was dead. I did snap this shot with my phone, of Ivy and Asher with a popcorn snack.
A couple weeks ago I was at the hair pulling out stress level with Carter and his homework and the forgetting of said homework. He didn't turn in a spelling project that is a big part of his grade, but his teacher gave an extension to turn it in by the next week. When that Friday came, he was ready to turn it in but he'd (again) forgotten what was due that week.
In a fit of scrambling and messaging, he was able to finish it in on time. I emailed the teacher during the school day to ensure he actually turned it in and she responded that yes, he had turned in both weeks' spelling but he forgot to do his math.
Anyway. I'm so thankful she's so understanding and that it's still just the beginning of the year. Lots of grooves to still be found.
Also, a I've got a different kind of response here: 5 Things Parents Want to Tell Teachers.
P.S. Ivy's stitches stay in until Monday. :/ Fall is here, which I love, but the grey skies and biting chill are really getting to me today, and I'm more teary-eyed than usual. Hold me?
