Good thoughts are appreciated. Duckie is doing well at school but she's been a bear at home due to her early bus (7:18) and more homework than last year. And this week promises to be horrible: Full week of school and homework, no open periods three days this week to work on homework at school with orchestra practice, she misses social studies on Wednesday (and must make up the work!) due to her viola lesson AND she has tech week rehearsals every night this week starting at 5:30PM due to opening night for her musical on Friday. She's a dance teacher's assistant on Saturday morning. She has a small extra credit project due a week from tomorrow, she decided to knock it out today. She'll be bringing her homework to rehearsal each night. We laid out a week's worth of school clothes and rehearsal clothes today. I'm making crockpot meals throughout the week. We're as prepared as we can be, but.... ?????
