Yesterday and Today


September 12th, 2006

Yesterday, 3 of my kids were absent. Yesterday, we had a great day. The kids listened the first time, followed directions, actually focused on the lessons, walked up and down the stairs without trying to trample the person in front of them, and in general had a great day.

Today on the other hand…today I discovered why my kids are so off the wall. All day, over the general hum of the classroom, I could only hear one voice. And I could hear his voice carrying from the hallways, the lunch room, the bathroom, pretty much any place in the school. If I didn’t hear his voice, then I heard the voices of 15 other kindergartens telling me what inappropriate thing he was doing, had just done, or was trying to convince the other kids to do. By 8:30 a.m. he had been to the office, twice. By 9:00 his parents were called, but lucky for him we only got voice mail. By 1:45 he had the whole class so worked up and out of control that nap time replaced gym class so I could regain my sanity.

There are 173 days of school. We have been in kindergarten for 12 days.
