Yee, catch-up post.

Except I am super-duper tired and my mind is blank.

Here are Avery’s Goddard Reports.

I went to visit ECSE and I have a whole ‘nother post about that, but no time now. The gist of it is that they were uptight, he seems to be more communicative at Goddard and home than he was there, I wrote her a complaint in which I tried to be polite but was so fed up by their standoffishness and lack of communication that I probably wasn’t, and now she wants to visit him at Goddard (an apeasement mechanism, I am sure) and meet with me. Which is fine. Naim went with me, which was very entertaining to hear his observations, and Aaron went to WeVillage.

In contrast, I have spent the last two Wednesday’s at VH with the kids for different things. I went to Discoverers and Naim’s film making class and was interviewed about homeschooling, but I doubt they will use it because Avery was climbing all over me. And then I went to Aaron’s Science Olympiad class where they launched their bottle rockets. VH is fun. During other times there, Avery and I hung out in the library, the playroom and at the park.

They also did drama and art as per usual.

We have gone to the gym a few times. Naim and Avery participated in Gym Jamboree one week. The other, we took Aaron to the gym with us for about a 1/2 hour and played some made-up games.

We had a couple of days break from School. One was for a colossal meeting about housework, school and family management. Another, we blew off school to just have a nice day outside and went exploring. We started a housecleaning system with a rotating set of checklists and cards that seems to be going well so far. Other schoolwork progressed. We got a little stuck on subtraction with regrouping and are still making our way through that Chapter. We finished Maps, Globes and Graphs Book A. They are both really close to the end of their respective HOP books and Naim is a day away from finishing his current Sylvan book. We watched a lot of brainpop as well.

We went to M.C.’s birthday party at Shute Park and checked out the new playground equipment and water/sand feature. We also went to the duck pond when our haircut errand didn’t work out. We also took Sully to the dog park.
