Yesterday was our very first meeting with Isaac’s kindergarten teacher to talk about his progress, both with schoolwork and behavior. The meeting took place at 7:20 am which is EXTREMELY early to get us and 3 kids dressed, fed and out the door. It was pouring rain, which didn’t help. Miraculously, we made it on time. Isaac was sent to play in the room next door and Jonny and Ben attended the meeting with us (and both fell asleep, poor things.)
Isaac’s report was actually very good! His teacher reports excellent behavior – she has never had to discipline him – he always listens and does what he is told the first time, he cleans up after himself, plays well with the other kids and does his schoolwork neatly and well. I wonder why we don’t see more of this stellar behavior at home! Needless to say we were both very pleased that he seems to have gotten off to a great start in school.
Today, we had another gorgeous, unseasonably warm fall day. The temperature was near 70 degrees. I had a half-day at work which was even better. The boys got to play outside for a bit, I went shopping for coffee and Asian cooking ingredients (in the same store!) and Isaac went to gymnastics. We opened all the windows in the house and I got some cleaning done. If only the weather would stay like this until spring!
