Having fun.… Day 494 23MAR10

Joshua started today with his teacher coming over for school. He was taking the stanford tests that she brought to help evaluate his progress and had a little meltdown. He gets really frustrated when he can not remember stuff or cannot figure something out that eh feel he should be able to do. We managed to get him back on track without a major incident developing. As soon as he was done Preston and Hannah showed up for a play date. The weather was perfect and they got to spend some time outside playing. Tiffany and Renee were working on some more wine glasses for the Children's Cancer Center fundraiser so Joshua and Hannah jumped in to create few. The glasses turned out beautiful and I know the big girls and the kids had fun paining them.

After they left we relaxed for a little bit before taking Joshua in to town for tutoring at the Cancer Center. This is his second time at tutoring and it has been going extremely well. He got a bunch of his homework done without any problems. He is really working well with the volunteer tutors which is wonderful. He has a hard time working with us sometimes and just responds better to someone outside the family. The rest of the evening was pretty laid back with dinner and then watching the Lighting win for a change. Jarrod will be back tomorrow so Joshua's reign as only child in the house will come to an end. He has enjoyed all the extra attention but he misses his brother.

Hey Snuggle Monkey,

Try not to stress too much over the school work. Great news about the tutors - bet that's having fun with a one on one to help you over the little humps.

Celebrate your last day as an only child.

I can't wait to hear about Jarrod's Michigan adventures. Wonder if he made it to Canada on ice skates?

Keep kickin butt Mighty Warrior. You are my Champion.

Tons of Love, Hugs and Kisses,

Sounds like a pretty good day, all in all. The tutors sound like a wonderful bunch and Chef Jarrod could bake cookies for them when he gets home from his vacation in Michigan.

I'd like to purchase some wine glasses hand painted by my favorite family so let me know when.

Love, Miss Laura
