Here we are at the end of April already. I will admit that my keyboard is still foolishly wrong. It's been good for no-peek typing practice anyway.
Chaco is practically a college student. His acceptance and all the associated paperwork that goes along with that have been trickled in over the last few months. Yesterday he attended a freshman orientation and already has his class schedule for fall.
He's also already got the student ID shown here, looking like something from America's Most Wanted. His explanation: "It was a long day".
Now, he just needs to make it through two more weeks of high school.
The weather has been lovely, I think it's (almost) safe to say that winter is officially over. I've been enjoying ideal conditions for my early morning runs. I'm remembering how much fun it is to run without little icicles forming on the eyelashes.
On that note, Run With Lumber was last week at the elementary school. I SO don't miss chairing that.
On that note, I am thankful that I still have ties to the school through my crossing guard job. I did make some nice acquaintances during my years as a volunteer mom.
And speaking of jobs, the tutoring biz is good. I'm having to turn some prospective students away, and have found time for a couple of others. My current assortment of students makes for a diverse group of nice kids and abilities and subjects. Talking with one student last week, I revealed that I don't tutor my own kids unless they ask for help. He was very surprised by that. Is that surprising?
