But husband volunteered at the local college football game yesterday, to help with-injuries. He said a frosh was benched (or whatever expression they use) because he hadn't turned in his homework all quarter. Argh! That's exactly what difficult child has been doing lately. He came home with-his rep't card Fri: all Bs, Cs, and one D+ in reading. Sigh. The teacher's note said he needs to take personal responsibility for himself and his work and quit blaming others and making up excuses. Ya think?
