Another week of the newest school year is under our belts. For us, it’s been a week of getting back into a routine after vacation and it hasn’t been too bad.
I seriously considered taking Monday off, but I already had my schedule written and the weekend pretty much tossed us back into the deep end of the reality pool, so I decided there was no reason to give us another day to have to tack on at the end of the year.
Thankfully, we had nowhere we had to be at any time on Monday, so we were able to ease back into school without other commits affecting our schedule. Tuesday was a little rushed with Brianna having a volleyball game and Brian having a softball tournament.
Her team lost; his won. Actually, Brian’s team went on the win the entire tournament, so that was pretty cool. Before all the games, we did manage to squeeze in a couple of fun science experiments…of which I failed to take pictures.
This week hasn’t been a terribly exciting one, but the routine works just as well for me, especially just coming off of vacation and trying to get back into the swing of things.
I did do the first major overhaul of my mom binder in several years. I’ll be posting details next week. I’m so proud of the way it turned out – nothing major and exciting, I guess, just different and more what I need for this season of life.
Last night, I was sitting at my laptop – waiting for it to finish a defrag, and waiting, and waiting – when I heard a noise out on the porch. I thought another cat might be out there messing with our cats, so I went to investigate.
I opened the door only to find a scrawny little possum staring me in the face. It’s no wonder those things get run over all the time. It didn’t get in any hurry at all as it walked right past me, down the stairs, and wandered off out past the flower bed.
I wish I’d gotten a picture – either of the possum or of my cats looking like they weren’t sure if they should attack this strange creature or run from it.
One final thought, just so you don’t think it’s all rainbows and pixie dust around here: Sometimes teaching a dyslexic kid, who probably also has some auditory processing issues, to read is a lot like teaching Joey, from Friends, how to speak French.
I really, really wanted to embed the video, but embedding was disabled. You really should click over and watch the video, though. There are those of you out there who can totally relate and if you’re one of them, you need the laugh. Really, I know you do.
