The kids were out of school, but that didn’t mean it was a lazy day! Parent-teacher conferences! Time to check on their progress!
The kids playing with my Kindle Fire while waiting for Madi’s conference.
Madi’s doing GREAT in school! Straight-A’s, and she has a great teacher (set of teachers, since they share classes). This will be her last year at her elementary school. Then she goes to middle school. I guess technically it’s junior high, but they still call it middle school here. Her teacher told us about how well they work the transition, with the middle school and elementary schools working together. I love that.
Ethan’s doing well, too! They don’t do letter grades for them, until 5th grade, and he’s in 4th. I like that as well. I remember in 2nd grade stressing out over grades, and that’s just not healthy for a child!
Dinner was a very easy basic meal. We had mac and cheese. Yes, that was it, but we’d snacked all day, so it was enough for us. We don’t always do the healthiest of meals, but we’re all getting clean bills of health, so we must be doing something all right
Thursday nights are nights I stay up and write the newsletter. This is a shot of my laptop screen (because I was too lazy to edit a screenshot). One top is Spotify, which I use quite regularly. Mouse is pointing at “Sarah Needs Music” which is my go-to playlist. I have ALL the music I like to listen to on it. I’ll go from Florida Georgia Line to Linkin Park to Bon Jovi to Point of Grace to Manson (“This Is Halloween”). It’s kind of crazy. Under that is Firefox with Photobucket tab activated. That’s how we share the images for Gingerscraps. Digital scrapbooking stores use a LOT of images, and a lot of bandwidth, so we pay a little to use the unlimited with Photobucket.
