It was ...
*enter harrowing wails of sorrow*
Actually, I don't know what the heck it was this evening but it's definitely NOT bloggable. It's bad. It wasn't soap poisoning. That would have been easy.
Sissy is getting harder to manage by the minute and it's scaring the crap out of me, terrorizing her younger siblings and tearing our family apart.
Always look on the bright side of life
Progress reports came out today. AB improved in ALL areas!! I'm SO proud of him. He's still not passing math BUT he improved his percentage 6 points in the last four weeks! He just might pass by the end of the second quarter!
WG... wow. Our county is using new state standards for grading first graders. Students are given 1, 2, 3 or 4 on 11 different tested areas of achievement. At the meeting at the beginning of the school year to educate the parents on the new standards, they told us "Students will likely score 2s and 3s. We very rarely assign 4s. Students that get 4s are far exceeding the standards CONSISTENTLY. Don't be upset if you child doesn't get a 4. In fact, consider it unlikely. Our objective is to get every first grader in the 3s for all 11 areas of achievement by May"
So I opened WG's progress report and began crying. Out of the 11 areas, 7 scored a 4. The other 4 areas were scored a 3. Wow. WOW WOW WOW. Holy crap, wow. I'm going to look into seeing if she'll qualify for a scholarship to attend the local prep school next year.
Oh, and WG lost her first tooth at super on Monday night. She began to cry saying, "I'm just so happy I'm crying!" LOL Don't tell WG in case it gives her a big head, but just thinking about how normal she is makes me so happy i cry!
OK, because I'm raw after tonight's fiasco, I'm feeling generous. The first reader that can tell me the names of the two movies I've quoted here will get a set of 4 hand quilted coasters.
