How To Survive Seventh Grade.

Good morning, it is Friday.

Last night was a night of lots of homework. Hansen has been doing his best to learn the states and capitals. Even worse for the poor kid, learning how to spell these silly words. Hansen does get his spelling ability (or lack of) from his dad. Lillie was working on her spelling words (no problem) and working on tally marks for math. Preston was working on a How To Survive Seventh Grade brochure. The brochure is very cute, here are a couple of pics (I think you can bigify if you want to actually read the information):

The bus pass drama is in full swing, Lillie still has a different bus than Hansen in the morning, but the same bus on the ride home. The hi-cap program is a "special service" so they send out a "special service" bus that Hansen is on on the ride to school. There may also be "Behavioral challenged" students on the "special service" bus, so at this point, if you're on that bus, you can't ride a "regular" bus, and a "regular" kid can't ride the "special services" bus...but somehow Hansen rides a "regular" bus along with everyone else from the morning stop on the way home. I am trying not to get too bent out of shape as Lillie's bus pass is a bonus for us, that said, the reasoning I am coming across for why they can't be on the same bus in the AM is just "crazy"! I will hear more today. Here is a photo of Lillie on the bus, says she was having fun, but the picture does not really show it.
See you tomorrow.

But dilly-dallying in the halls is the best part of the 7th grade! Lovely picture of Lillie. Love, susanna
