2 days off of school

We had today and will have tomorrow off of school. I don't even know what holiday it is? Is is President's Day? I know there is no school tomorrow for a staff development day. It was kind of nice just spending the day at home today. Gage spent the entire day building Lego sets. I heard him start into his first project at 6am! He completed his first set around 10 and then worked on his next set until around 4:30. We had to leave for gymnastics shortly after that.

Tonight was our Blue and Gold Banquet for Cub Scouts. It started at 6:30, just after we got home from gymnastics. We ate supper at the banquet and they served a baked potato bar. It was pretty good. I was surprised at how well the kids ate it. I thought it might not be too kid friendly, but my kids liked them.

We don't have too much going on tomorrow. Gage has an appointment tomorrow after lunch to meet with Pastor Jake. One of the requirements to earn his Wolf badge in Cub Scouts is to talk to the leader of our church and find out what he can do to help. I'm guessing he will be able to do train to be an acolyte, and I'm not sure what else will be in store for him. Gage only has 3 more things to do (one of them is the meeting with our pastor) to earn his wolf badge. We will be getting our candy bars this weekend for our spring fundraiser. OH JOY! This is our last week of selling Girl Scout Cookies, so it works out just swell to end one fundraiser and start another. I'm sure our neighbors are going to start hiding when they see us walking down the sidewalk, like they do when the Schwan's man drives down the street! :-)

I forgot to mention that we had the kids' parent-teacher conferences last week. They are both doing very well. Gage's conference was the last one his teacher had to do, and it appeared to us that she was ready to be done. She gave us a good report, but didn't really have too much to say. We also met with his Reading Enhancement Group teacher. She is very nice and it seems that she is trying to figure out how to challenge Gage in reading.

Emma is also doing very well in school. She is in the top reading group along with 4 other kids in her class. She has been having some issues at school with listening, which we already knew. Her teacher said that she was going to use this long weekend to change the seating arrangements in the room, as she thought that might help some. There are a couple of boys at Emma's table that don't behave the best, which might be why Emma has been acting up a bit as well. I'm praying that is the answer. If it isn't, I'm not quite sure I know what to do about it? She's not causing major problems, but she is being distracted and causing distractions which is unacceptable in our book. We're just hoping the new seating chart takes care of the problem.

Well, that's my story and I'm stickin' to it.
