Good morning, it is Tuesday.
Yesterday was Hansen and Lillie's parent/teacher conferences. They both did very well!
Lillie's teacher praised Lillie for her academic skills and such, but the best praise was about her as a student. She said that "Lillie is always on task and trying her best, in fact with Lillie in her class she knows at least one student will always be on task." Good for Lillie!
Hansen's teacher may never give any student such glowing praise, but his report card was equally impressive. We talked about things like "showing work on math problems", and stuff like that. Considering Hansen's year late start in the Hi Cap program, he has made very good strides in catching up with his peers and learning to stay on track. Good for Hansen!
So very good conferences for the kids...maybe Santa will leave more than just a chunk of coal for them under the tree this year?!? I just wonder, how much cheaper is coal than say I-pods, game-boys and the like? Hmm.
Today Maren works very late and the rest of us will be hanging out.
See you tomorrow.
