In the good news corner, C is really loving school. It's not like this was some quick fix, cure all. C has coasted by on being smart her whole life. But this school demands more, and they are used to students like C. She's had a double strike since she's had to take so much time off to go to various doctors appointments thanks to her injury, so she was already falling behind in her school work. She also picked an academic class for one of her electives (psychology), which means she has a bit more schoolwork than the average kid. As a child who struggles with executive management skills, this was a recipe for disaster, but I refrained from lecturing (too much) and let her go with her choices. To sum up, she's now got mandatory study hall for two of her classes which she's struggling in (her two least favorite classes, I might add), and she had to drop her art class so that she can use that extra time to catch up on her academic classes. She was disappointed, but I was surprised how well she took it. She was very philosophical and stated she expected she'd be allowed to pick the class back up once she had her grades up. It's so nice to be the sounding board and not the bad guy!!**
Still not really into taking pictures, I did manage to get a few candid shots.
Until she realizes that I am snapping photos!
*Having just done a long car trip the previous weekend, N was pretty much over the car seat.
**Even if I can't seem to help lecturing half the time!
