She just turned 20, and I hope some day she will wake up....
Spring sports can be soooo cold!
Both girls played softball and we froze during the high school season. Then baked and ate dirt during the summer.

I was about 22 when I realized I had been a brat for the previous ten years. Although I can say I never complained when we were at Disney.

I am buying gloves and a hat this weekend -- hope there are still some for sale.

Good luck with that. I'm sure you can find an Easter bonnet and white gloves. Not sure how warm you'll be!

We still have plenty in Kansas, let me know if you can't find anything! Then tell me what color you want. I can make a Target run, it's very close!

UGH baseball is about to start. BRRRRRRRRRRR

You are lucky Baylor plays basketball!

The cover my rear end length north face coat (I am sure there is an acutal term for it 3/4? car coat?) that I wear to winter soccer games extends into early baseball season. Best thing I EVER bought.

Sounds familiar. Soccer practice always started when it was freezing cold and the season ended when were sitting in the bleachers dripping with sweat. In between that, there were a lot of rainy days and muddy games.

Hope you guys all have a good weekend full of family, friends, and fun! wigd, did you say you have a workshop Saturday? I am glad I have nothing to do Saturday. We started after-school tutoring this week, and between the beginning of Read Me Week activities, tutoring, faculty meeting and helping get ready for Family Reading Night, I'm ready for a Saturday with no obligations!

Isn't that what all well bred Southern ladies wear to soccer practice?!

Hannah is starting cheerleading. Her first practice is Saturday and will be on Tuesday and Thursday after that. Who knew there was football in the Spring?!

Question for you teachers: Hannah had a sheet of paper in her bookbag the other day. It was a Recommended Reading Report and it showed her Student Lexile as 175. (The school has a Book Fair coming up and it looks like there was some kind of reading test done to determine what books would be best for her so it's not an "official" reading test.) The teacher wrote a note that she started at 357. That's a big drop! I've sent her teacher an e-mail about it but haven't heard anything back. I'm really concerned about this big drop and wondering if this is normal. She does pretty good when she's reading at home so not sure what's going on. If it's not normal I want to find out what the problem is so we can correct it now.

MeMom, that is a perfect description of the soccer season!

Jillyb, I would ask the teacher to allow Hannah to take the Lexile assessment again. Do you know if they use SRI to measure that? That's what we use, and there can be fluctuations in the score for a variety of reasons -- the passages may have been about something completely unknown to Hannah, she could have been having a bad day or didn't feel well, she might have been distracted while taking it -- there is no telling, but with a drop of 200 points, I would definitely want her to retake it to make sure she isn't regressing in her reading ability. Hope that helps!

Yes. The stated purpose was the report was providing an individualized list of books for a student based on his/her reading interests and SRI test results. (Not surprisingly her reading interest is Animals & Pets and Holidays!) I, too, thought that there was a possiblity she just didn't feel like reading what she was given or was distracted, etc. I'll let her teacher know that I'd like for her to re-take the test. You definitely helped! Thanks!
