I am SO READY for the end of the school year. So of course these last weeks are proceeding at glacial speed. Where's global warming when you need it? We've been doing individual and group projects at school, so at least I don't have to actually teach. /shudder One of my mantras that I've used for years is "there will come the time." There will come the time when school is over, or chemo is done, or the baby is born. There will come the time. And you know what? It's true.
Sabrina has started her martial arts classes. She's taking something called Merpati (mp, pronounced em-pay), which is from Indonesia. She is so cute in her little black pajamas with a white belt knotted around her tiny waist. The best part of this class is that they give them awards for doing a checklist, which includes stuff like making your bed, putting away your dirty clothes, taking a bath, doing your homework, and cooperating with your siblings. Sabrina has never been so eager to put her bowl up after breakfast! We'll do this for six months, then see where we are. We do want her to take gymnastics, horse riding lessons, piano, ice skating, soccer, basketball, art classes, reading classes, etc., as well as learn to ride a bike, get As in school, have fun with friends, get her Personal Progress at 13, and so on. No, we don't expect her to sleep. Overrated.
