Re: Basically it's Tuesday

The tests Shannon did today makes me lean more towards the Real school...but I want to see what this Werkreal school is like first.

I have no idea if the Real school would be able or willing to take into consideration Shannon's ADHD status. Derry's school is really on top of looking after her because of her ADHD status but not all schools are willing. This new school would have a lot more students per class so it might not be possible.

The Werkreal school is much smaller and the classes have less kids so it might be better for her.

Her having no idea at all about what she might like to do when she leaves school is making it harder though. We suggested maybe she might like to join the army...there she'd have all her options open to her and could study or work as anything she wanted. It's a option.

Re: Basically it's Tuesday

they were very good. the new Miss Navajo comes every year so this is something they are used too.

they each have their own message that they focus on during their rein. In her case it is Navajo kinship and the importance of clan relations

It has been... A day.

My class was really good all day long. That was awesome! Found out a lunch today that I have an interview for the position I applied for yesterday tomorrow morning before work. Phew! That should be interesting!

E came home in a bad mood because he lost/had a Beyblade stolen at TKD, and Ru is off at a board meeting tonight. Fun evening at this house!

I think the idea of joining the army is a nifty one, Janine!
