She handled the entire thing so well and was gracious and forgiving when I explained that the whole thing was my fault. All her friends tested - and in she waltzed, thinking she was maybe a minute or two late, only to find out she missed it all. This was something she's been talking about for weeks, and it was no small disappointment. I was expecting tears when she got in the car - or at home - but she had a smile on her face the whole time. I'm incredibly proud of her.
Other big things going on around here:
- The Patriot has his first two teeth
- Crockett is out of diapers and doing well (after a difficult week)
- We're slowly progressing through Across Five Aprils for history. It's a wonderful, rich book - but very detailed (lots of generals and battles and politics). It's been a challenge to get through. Bobo's reading Freedom Train: The Story of Harriet Tubman, and Elbow's book for the time period is Little House in the Big Woods.
