Tomorrow is Thanksgiving. Much to do to prepare. The kids are off of school this week. I had Parent/Teacher conferences on Monday. Overall, they are both doing extremely well. Baby Girl is still pokey and always last in line, to recess, lunch, etc. Ultimately, we think it's a control issue with her. She will deal with you and your demands when she is good and ready *sigh*
So, she must be broken to realize she needs to do what she's told, when she's told. We've always expected that of her, but have been a bit lax as of late and now it's coming back to bite us in the ass.
Otherwise, she is very ready to start reading and at or above where she should be on everything. Which is great since she is one of the youngest, if not the youngest, in the class.
Little Man is doing spectacular as well. His teacher had the same observations as me. We noticed such a difference in the first 2 weeks. She indicated he thought it was playtime when school first started and after about 2 weeks he got it that it was time to learn, not play. They do, of course, play, but it's learning and playing. We need to keep working on counting with him, but he's exactly where he should be, again, being one of the youngest in the class (I actually do think he is the youngest...damn me and my late spring/early summer due dates!)
I did the Thanksgiving shopping Monday before conferences and made the green bean casserole yesterday along with the stuffing/dressing. Today I will make the sweet potatoes, glazed carrots and pumpkin pie.
I'm working quite a bit again, averaging 20.5 hours a week the next few weeks. Good to have the hours, but makes for a very tired girl!
