Okay, I shouldn't be as excited as I am. But, I AM!
Last night we went to "Back to School" nite for the parents. We went to each of Sydney's classes and met all her teachers. And, every teacher had nice things to say about Sydney (and only a one seemed thrown by the fact that she was there with two fathers). Apparently she is very participative in class. She regularly gets extra credit in World Cultures because she keeps up with the news. Her art and choir teachers were very happy to see her. And, her math and language arts (english) teachers certainly had nice things to say about how attentive she is in class.
But, the best part was all the kids she talked to in the hall! They were everywhere and she knew them by name, and they seemed excited to see her. And, all the kids walked in front of the parents with their heads together, undoubtedly comparing notes on how dull their parents are. In fact, at one point, we had to pull her away so we could get to the next class. It was a wonderful thing to see.
And, even though she earned two home demerits yesterday, we had a wonderful evening with her, in her element, where she was in charge and got to lead us around as if she were a tour guide, pointing out the features of the school and introducing us to her teachers.
And, she has friends!
Y'all have a great Wednesday and we'll see ya' round the net. Lane
