Cool, maybe raining. Hope not, because it’s D1’s school beach day… I hope it’s like yesterday, which got hot and sunny, before finally cooling off with some big fat rain drops after dark. I guess we’ll see.
Did my errands yesterday, interrupted and bracketed by school events. 6th grade honors in the morning, 8th grade in the evening. Oh, and an eye exam for D2 in the afternoon. Some days, the more I have to do, the more I get done, some days it’s the opposite.
I did a bit of social study during the school stuff. What did the teachers value for their teacher’s choice awards? (quiet, tries hard, uses all the resources available, kind, helpful) Why were girls featured at about a 3:1 or more ratio in all the pix and video? (they might actually outnumber the boys) Why if so? (no sports might mean boys self select to not attend this school) 30% of 8th graders were taking dance classes. Only one was male. Salud and valedictorians were all girls. 3rd year for one of the girls. Couple kids had three years of straight As, 95% or better As at that. Pretty much everyone in the school would have been on the honor roll in a regular district school, so they made the honor roll harder, and made another level above that too. Interesting stuff.
Saw a couple of parents I haven’t seen in a while, since we didn’t do swim team with them last year. Our pool’s team was a great crossroads for several neighborhood groups. In theory, we’re doing swim team this year, but D2 isn’t going to enough practices, so I don’t think it will happen. I miss seeing some of the other dads at practices and meets. It would be nice to see them again.
Today I’m trying to head to my client’s place. At least do some work. No kid stuff with afternoon appointments on the calendar. I usually spend the afternoon there, and into the evening when my client comes home and we meet. He’s out of town though, so I should be able to ‘down tools’ and head home at a decent time. We’ll see. Hope to get some stuff done.
And maybe stack some greenbacks. They are as much a prep as anything, and I’ve been using stacks to buy some needful things lately. Need to replenish what got used.
Stack some resources. They always come in handy.
