I have a lot that I should be doing today, But I just cannot find the motivation to do any of it. So I think I will just here and drink another cup of coffee.
Yesterday Nikki and I got out into the garage and started pricing the big items for the yard sale. I really hope that her yard sale does well, so that she will get a little taste of success, and really get out there and start fund raising. What I have not told Nikki is that someone we know is going to give her close to $1000 for the trip! That means she only needs to raise about $800 more. I know that she can do it!
I just so dred getting up and setting up for a yard sale when it has been so cold first thing in the mornings. BRRRR......
Ryans teacher and I are about to bump heads. I keep insisting that Ryan should memorize all of his basic math facts and she says that he does not need to do that " because he can use tally marks to figure everything out". So last night Ryan brings home math with regrouping and he cannot figure it out because he can't remember what tally marks he made for what problem. However if I just look at him and say Ryan what is 10 + 4 he can tell me. Then I will ask him then what is up with all of these marks? he will say well that is what my teacher wants me to do.
Maybe I am to old. I am all of 36, but when I went to school all of those math facts were drilled into our heads. Then again I also had a teacher that would walk up and brain dust and tell us to get back to work. Maybe it is another sign of the times.
I was just looking through some of the papers that Ryan brought home and I am trying to get a hold of the lady in charge of the running club at Ryans school. O.K. I just got a hold of the lady who is in charge of the running club. I am going to let Ryan have a go at running track. I think he will really enjoy it!
I so wish that there was more for special ed children to do. We use to have a baseball league for special ed children, but that fizzled out. So I am hoping that running track will give him something else to do and a way to be like other children. I guess all we can do is wait and see.
Well now I am in a good mood. I am so hopeful that this will work out for Ryan. I so want him to find something that he enjoys and something that he is good at.
Well, I guess I better get into a shower and start my day. Oh Rusty said that I could go get my nails done, so I am thinking about getting them done today. we will see.....
