I love the idea of an adventure club! Thankfully, girl scouts is still working for us for now. Time will tell!
Geo - I am trying to be gentle about this for the moment, while still making the distinction that this isn't just her slacking. I wrote this in reply to his first email:
Thank you for your reply. Katie really is working very hard to understand this material. I am not sure if you understand the level of difficulty manipulating numbers presents for Katie. She has an IEP for her math learning disability. Over the last couple of days, she put in about 5 hours of work to complete the pages she was able to finish. I felt that she was gaining some comprehension of the process, but she did need the use of a conversion chart as an aid. I understand about being fair to the other students, but I highly doubt that any of them will need to put in the effort to complete the work that she will in order to finish.
I have not gotten a reply to this, yet. I am guessing he probably hasn't read the IEP. Hopefully, the reason he hasn't replied is that he is trotting down the hall to her special ed teacher to see what all the fuss is about.
Congratulations on the new car, Kerc. I always get really aggravated when things go wrong with the cars and/or they need to be replaced.
RR: I meant to do a short weights routine followed by a swim. But, as I was finishing up the strength portion, I saw a whole bunch of high school kids take over the pool. The high school pool is being renovated, so they come over to the park district to swim. Irritating because it wasn't on the schedule (I could have planned my gym time differently). So, I went into the gym and played basketball for half an hour while waiting for them to do their class. Needless to say, my arms and shoulders are tired now!
NRR: DH upgraded his iPad to IOS6, and we have been having a good time making Siri say all sorts of crazy things!
