I can't imagine being a teacher and doing 30 conferences. I did three yesterday and ... yawn.... sigh...... I have three more today.
Very few times do I think that parenting a large family is overwhelming. But this time of year when every teacher has those high expectations of parents -- I get a little weary. Every year the same forms. Even though we have computers folks. Couldn't you just send out the information from last year and have us correct it?
I especially love those forms that ask to put down the names of every sibling for every child. YES!
I am sure that there are other families that do a better job of school homework than I do.... but sometimes I wonder who has more homework -- the student or the parent? But I will stop that before I get criticized for my lack of concern about the education of my children.
So today I will do the three 8th graders and get conferences finished up. School supplies and clothes are about done being purchased. I think we have maybe two items left...
And tomorrow morning I will be free.... free to dive into all the work for my jobs I've been putting off until school starts.
