Good morning, yesterday my son was sick so he stayed home from school. I spent the day organizing and playing games. Destinay did some cooking, she read some magazines, and it occurred to me that is learning. She was playing on Club Penguin she was reading. Maybe it isn't like sitting down doing academics, but it still counts. Here in RI public school students go to school 180 days per year. How many teachers actually get perfect attendance? How many students get that? How many people take days out of school and make up days later? I mean yesterday Thailee was sick he stayed out of school, is he going to go to school after it gets done? No he isn't. I think I can be too hard on myself at times. There are even days where teachers take what is called Professional Day, students get the day out. I am going to count yesterday as a Professional Day. Plus Destinay and I can do some kind of school today. We had a snowstorm yesterday, kids are out of school because of it. I can't go out due to Thailee being sick, we can do some work. At least there's no obligation. Thanks for all of the suggestions yesterday.
