Well thankfully Mana has recovered for the most part. He hasn't had a fever for about 2 days so thats a good thing. His cough is even getting better. So I went and saw Mana's teacher today and I was there for 1 hour. That was a very long hour. I didn' t know teachers met with parents for so long. The whole time I had a nasty expression on my face ( I have some mean angry faces ask willie hahahaha) but that didn't phase her. She just talked and talked and talked and talked. We didn't get very much accomplished. She did realize that she hadn't sent home any letters or notes notifying me of what's going on with some areas like spelling homework and reading. I also found out that Mana's class is comprised of kids who have behavioral issues. Which is bizarre because thats one thing she said Mana has no problem with. He has never spoken back or given attitude to any of his teachers. Oh and I asked about summer school and apparently that might not do it this year because of lack of funding. NC has already cut teachers pays since this recession crap. So yeah I'm trying to get Mana to keep and journal. I'm hoping this will help his writing, spelling and organizing his thoughts to paper. I don't think he likes it very much. It funny, Mana remembers a lot of random things about trips and people and places we have been. He even remembers what year and his age and stuff, but he doesn't remember what he did at school. LOL Hopefully my new plan I have will work. Im also trying to find things he likes to do and then have him write about what we just did.
Thanks to Meleofa and Dustin for introducing him to plants etc he really wants to grow some stuff so Im thinkiing I will take the kids to a nursery and get some seeds, pots etc and grow them on our porch. I know both kids really loved planting with Meleofa and Dustin.
Miriam you crack me up about the bug thing. We have mosquitoes which was horrible the other night. Victoria had opened the porch door during the day and I didn't know she had done that and 3 mosquitoes came into the house and ended up in my room and bit me all night. I finally found them and killed those suckers hahahahaha. bugs are sooooo gross.
