Miranda: "Isn't today a holiday? That's what it says on my calendar."
Me: "Yes, it is Columbus Day."
Miranda: "So, we don't have school today, right?"
Me: "No, you do have school."
Miranda: "But, it says it's a holiday."
Me: "Yes, that's true, but, you STILL have school today!"
Now, repeat the same dialogue with Isaiah and Eli! Get real, they just started school last month and they're already looking forward to the holidays! Mind you, I already gave them a vacation day last Friday! I had my phone conference with their teacher this morning, and I felt so encouraged after we hung up. I also found out that one of my friends sister-in-law is also doing this same program with her children! There is so much offered to them (support with work, field trips, etc)! Miranda and Eli are also enjoying their Spanish class as well! It's cute listening to them repeat what they have learned. Well, I'm off...I need to finish school, go to Costco, and pick up my sister in law at the airport! Busy, busy!
