Back to a normal evening routine
Now that the Olympics are over, our evenings are back to a more normal routine. I think I read more tonight than at least all last week combined, maybe more than the whole time of the Olympics. I don't know how I would get anything done if I watched several hours of TV every evening!
A is still having a bit of trouble with the routine of what to bring home from school. He has only forgotten homework once, but has forgotten his folder or his agenda several times. Tonight it was his agenda again. The teacher says I can write a note, but tonight I made A write the note and then I signed it. I seem to remember M had a similar problem at one point, where I threatened to put a big note in his backpack of what he needed to bring home. Maybe I should suggest that to A?... It might work or he might be horrified enough at the thought to figure it out on his own. I suppose I shouldn't really care since it isn't really inconveniencing me, but it may. He's currently working on a book report, but he can't finish it up because he turned the book in last week - and then couldn't check it back out because he forgot to take in his current book. He did some of the report, but its rather hard to get quotes when you don't have the book in hand!
