I went to Nick's school this morning to talk with the principal. I've been trying to get her to call me for weeks. Apparently she is quite busy. Nick was enrolled in a college math course, but the first week he was so frustrated. It was almost painful for him. He said "mom, he was showing them how to get the lowest common denominator by using a pizza." Nick probably knew how to get the lcd by, oh, 2nd grade. lol if that late. So, he wants to drop the class. His teacher, who is also his physics teacher, agreed that this class was of no benefit to Nick. He doesn't want to substitute a class. He's a Senior and he has enough credits. He just wants to leave. They won't let him leave without a note from an employer because now Seniors are only supposed to leave if they have a job. But, under certain circumstances, like the parent saying , "hey, I want my kid to leave" in writing, the principal will sometimes reconsider...so that's what I did this morning, wrote a note and hopefully she will fix this all up. Otherwise, his absences (because I've been signing him out and picking him up) are going to make it look like he was skipping and he could get a failing grade..and that would really suck. So, keep your fingers crossed for us.
Tim went out to the store a couple of times yesterday. First time, he came back with a journal for me. Very pretty with leaves on the front. That's a first. The last time he came back with chocolate. yummy. We've been walking several mornings this week. It's such a pretty and peaceful place in the woods. We've both enjoyed it a lot and plan to continue. It's raining today so I don't think we're going to get to go. One of these mornings I'll remember my camera. Each morning, I've been a little less far away from the house when I remember it. lol Eventually I will remember before I shut the door. :)
Hope everyone has a great weekend.
