The twinnies begin Grade One at the end of this month. I'm not looking forward to it. Don't get me wrong, I appreciate the eight hours of QUIET, but I really do miss them when they are gone. But, let's be completely honest, I have difficulty in surrendering my children over to "the government" (aka "Big Brother", aka the local school).
Homeschooling is not an option. I can't even get the children to follow basic rules like Thou Shall Not Pummel My Sister, or (more seriously) Thou Shall Not Plaster The New Fancy Schmancy Couch With Silly Putty. There's absolutely no way I could get them to learn "I before E except after C". So, I'm kinda committed to sending them to school.
All I had to do today was to pick up their supply list (that in itself deserves a post!) and pay the required $200 so they can attend the free, publicly funded local school.
Easy peasy, right?
I have greatly annoyed the receptionist (who said that she couldn't possibly deal with me until Monday), irritated the school principal, and totally pissed of some lady at the school board. Oh. I also embarrassed Dan, who had to ask me to lower my voice. I declined.
I can't wait to meet the teacher. Sigh.
