Dad, take my photo by the hedge

September 7, 2012

What a week. I decided to help out Mae’s teacher every day this week. She’s persuasive, and I enjoy working with her. I learn something every day I go – it helps me with my parental skills (I give myself a C- in that category, so every bit helps). I’m beat. I’m tired. I’m happy it’s the weekend, even though it’s raining frogs and chickens.

I know Mae loves it when I’m there with her during class. She’s a much different child when she’s engaged at school. She has a little switch in her brain – SCHOOL ON – and she tunes in and doesn’t tune out until it’s time to go home. She adores her teacher. She has good friends. Lots of people know and love her. I’m proud of her.
