Summer Vacation 201o
Co-op picnic. Where we preview and preregister for classes in the fall.
Parent-teacher conferences and confrontations. About a week ago, after hearing Bean's almost daily rehash of the class bully's antics, I almost turned the car around and took him back to school to ask the headmaster to explain to Bean why he had to put up with this crap and why he (the headmaster) couldn't or wouldn't do anything to put a stop to it. I didn't-thinking peacemaking-keeping hubby wouldn't like my mother's daughter's 'tude escaping. Tomorrow just might end a little differently.
Bullying is one of the reasons we pulled Middleman from this school. And haven't sent him back. Although, I have to say, one of the girls in his class who had been vicious to him for three years came up to him at graduation Friday night and apologized. That made a huge dent in my "bitterness, anger and grudge" holding department. LOL Mama Bear has a very long memory and loves her cubs very much.
Okay, enough vent on the viciousness of kids the lethargicness (is this even a word?) of adults.
All day college freshman orientation.
Repeat Day 3, only tired and cranky.
Complete and total collapse.
Although, I am outside in the cool afternoon breeze, under my umbrella, eating trail mix, drinking a Coke and looking at my squirrel free (for now, they know I'm here outside) gardens.
Life is good.
