Today we got to go see the Blue Angels perform up at the beach. What is this crazy life?! There was a lot of crying and fighting from lP and B on the drive up. Ugh! And traffic was real. But it was so amazing to see the air show. I'm so glad we went.
The girls got to go to a princess party today. It was lovely. I'm glad that some of their friends are willing to go all in for that. I'm just not that mom. But I am glad they got to have that experience.
G is doing great in his math class. I'm trying to help him learn to have study and note taking skills. Tonight I printed the note guides for this segment of the class. I also gave him dividers to organize his binder.
I realized tonight that my 10th grade teacher was trying to teach us how to have an organized binder. I just thought she was being a control freak. I also thought she didn't like me. And she maybe didn't since I was a brat. But she was trying to teach me an incredibly useful skill and I didn't get the point. I remember other teachers trying to teach me to make tables, outlines and timelines. Oh, I wish I had understood that was my brains primary way of organizing!
M is just like me and really fights being asked to do simple academic things. How I would love to help her understand how much easier learning is when you are organized...!
