what I have been up to

Actually I'm not sure where the last 2 weeks went. I didn't even realize it had been 2 weeks since I posted until just now.

Emily turned 10 last weekend and we had her birthday party yesterday at the bowling alley. That was a lot of fun, she has a nice group of friends. I'll have to post a photo later since I can't find the computer cable at this moment to upload the photos.

Last week was American Education Week at the schools. Wednesday, I went to Emily's class and discovered that she hadn't been wearing her glasses. Never mind I only realized this after observing them for about 30 minutes and that was after I asked her if she could see the board alright. Then when I got a moment I told her teachers and they had no idea that she needed them but they told me that she sits in the front of the class anyway. Well duh, that is because she can't see without those glasses! She played us all really well but now everyone is on to her.

On Thursday, I spent time at the middle school at Amanda's request. I figured I better go because next year is high school and she may not want me around cramping her style. I sat in on her Algebra 2 class where they were reviewing for a benchmark. Her teacher invited the parents to work on the problems. The topics, factoring and dividing mononomials and polynomials. Sure I remember how to do that....not really. But I managed to get 3 out of 7 right, not too bad. I also sat in on English, Science and French. French was fun, even though I had no idea what was being said, because the class put on a fashion show. The kids walked the 'cat walk' complete with music, just what 13 year old boys want to be doing. I didn't stay for the afternoon classes. Instead I went to kindergarten and enjoyed the controlled chaos for a hour or so.

We went and saw Madagascar 2. Funny movie, I love those crazy penguins. The penguins are going to be getting their own so on Nickelodeon in March, I think. There was an insert inside the Kung Fu Panda DVD. And yes I will be watching. I also took Amanda to see Twilight on Saturday. We liked it well enough but felt let down by all the hype. Amanda more than me probably because she has read the books almost 10 times and since Jasper didn't get much screen time.
