other than that she is doing fine while at school. she has been called 'chatty' though, and was told not to hum in class. i buy her hot lunch and she's given a lunch card. it's funny because the first day she told me excitedly, "they gave me a credit card to pay for my lunch." she likes to run around the track on the field with her friends at recess. i hope she doesn't lose any weight! we're all still adjusting to the new schedule, i think i will take the longest to adjust. and then it's round 2 come october when micah starts preschool. at least he won't have homework!

when lia started 1st grade i knew she would be bringing home homework, but what i didn't realize was that it meant i had homework too, lots of it. i even went to lakeshore learning to buy all kinds of charts to put on her wall. there's no way we had to know this kind of stuff when i was in 1st grade. i'm pretty sure i wasn't counting by 2's or writing out the month of august. did i even know what august was at 5 years old? well, it's only week 2 of school and homework for me is a true test on my patience. it took the first week of school to really motivate malia to start on homework, but now she doesn't have a problem starting. finishing is another issue. she and i sometimes get distracted when the little boy walks in "vroom vrooming" with his cars. (daddy is 'supposedly' watching him.) so i have to remind her to focus on her work so she could play afterwards.
