J, I'm sorry your ds is having trouble.
That is very stressful.
I like a lot of things about the school, and truthfully without this school we would be homeschooling (and still might), but some things bother me. On the other hand, this *is* our first foray into any kind of public school, so I am not so sure what the standards are/should be, IYKWIM, in terms of flexibility, etc.
But, hugs to you and your ds.
I ended up ebaying the shoes for almost what I paid (less $5, which is way less than I'd have spent in gas to return them) so that's it. I am sorry for dd because she loves them, but I can't justify the expense for a pair of shoes she'll wear twice or once a week. I'll try and go back myself, now that I know her size, and see if I can find something that doesn't light up.
I'm quite happy to have found the LLL group here! Actually I've been a leader for about 7.5 years, since my oldest was a toddler. I just haven't been all that active for a few years, since the group where we lived in NY wasn't nearby and I started working when we were there. Now, I'm home and able to be involved, so it's very nice.
Have all the kids home sick today and dd1 wants help with a puzzle (so NOT my strength...I don't see things spatially at ALL) so I am signing off for a while. Enjoy the gorgeous day!
If anyone wants to take a road trip (ha!) there's a great women's race in St. Pete this weekend...I am doing the Women's Half Marathon
and it should be really fun.
