More SOL testing at our school today. I would prefer to know the details, but I won't know what's up until I walk in the door. It's another cool, rainy day here. Bingo has opted to return to the bed instead of patrolling the back yard for squirrels and moles. pasa, I am so sorry that you had more large hail. ktmom, I hope your hubby gets to the dentist today. HMBgal, I don't see anything wrong with telling kids that their actions are inappropriate or unsafe. I'm glad not to have the constraint the school has imposed upon you. Yesterday, Jack ran away from me at the tennis courts. They are situated in a copse which is not visible from the school. I explained to him that we could go there and hang out with the tennis playing class, but only if he followed instructions. He ran away, so I will not be taking him back there again. Have a peaceful Thursday.
