Did Village Home registration today. It is such an Olympic Speed event. I sit there and start refreshing the page once a minute at 7:57. Then at 8:00, I refresh continuously until it is a go to enroll. Then I go as fast as humanly possible (or at this point, as fast as the computer will let me because it was bogged down with everyone doing this) and run through and get the classes. I got everything by about 8:10. There were some changes, but here is what it looks like now:


Class Title
DRA201 Theater for Kids
HSS101 Inter-Act Theater
MTH101 Math Playground
MUS120 Music In Me
PED104 Fun Sports
SCE137 OMSI Labs for Grades K-2


Class Title
ART210 Drawing
MUS120 Music In Me
SCE101 Creepy Crawly Critters
SCE106M Junior Lego/Ello Building Club
SCE137 OMSI Labs for Grades K-2
SCE215 Engineers Gone Wild!

If you look at Naim’s categories, he seems pretty well rounded. Drama, History, Math, Music, PE, and Science. But Aaron’s is Art, Music, Science, Science, Science, Science. But this is a full day one day a week, from 9:30 to 3:30. Whether Avery and I stay or go or arrange a ride or what is not decided, but whatever it is, it is only once a week. We’ll see how that goes. The OMSI lab is one Friday a month, so that will just be OMSI day.  Whether I switch Avery out of Goddard one Friday a month (to Thurs) or whether we do it permanently and have Friday be our field trip day I guess will be up to Goddard. Or a possibility is to put him in all day, but that would be more expensive, so I think we will just switch him out somehow.

After that, we went to the Outpost today. Avery “read” a Thomas book and gave his water bottle the longest wagon ride ever. Aaron got into a physical altercation with a couple of older bully brat kids, and handled it well. They wouldn’t let him go down a slide, they made fun of his shirt, then started shoving him, then grabbed his shirt and his arm. Aaron did a self defense move to get out of that. It was kind of interesting to watch, he almost did it on instinct, but it is something that he has shown me before. Then he went down the slide and came over and got me, and then I helped him negotiate it out. In the end, the kids gave him a password and he had to say the password to go down the slide. He was ok with that, but did it once and just left them alone after that. Alternatively,  Naim came early to find a seat for mad science and got a front row seat. Then, somehow, he got knocked/squeezed out of his seat twice by other kids. I did not see the whole thing because I was dealing with Avery being a brat. But he kept getting up and letting other people have his seat. I found him one in the second row and told him to sit down and stay there. Then he gave up that seat and I was just like, “you are on your own, kid.” Then, somehow, the Mad Science woman got involved (she was setting up her stuff on stage while all this was going on) and he returned to his seat in the front row. Sigh. So Mad Science, Superhero training, etc. at OutPost today. And then lots of existential conversations with Naim about God and the grey Aliens (Dwight!) and stuff on the way home.
