I feel like I’ve been living in a city with no children in it, a garden left for ruin by a millionaire inside of a private prison.

Good morning. 🙂  My swimsuits met with approval from both Chris and Em.  Ooh, and Em brought home her report card.  Her handwriting grade has stayed up at Satisfactory.  She maintained all the rest of her grades too.  She’s getting Os (Outstanding & the highest in this grade) in Math, Reading, Writing/Grammar, Spelling, and AIM.  She’s got Ss (Satisfactory) in Social Studies, Science, Health, and all the participation stuff, like Art, Music, PE, Handwriting, and Tech skills, as well as all the personal growth and development.  She’s also got IP/S (In Progress/Satisfactory – the highest) in all the standard indicators.  Her teacher’s comments are:

“Emily is doing well.  We are still working on handwriting and it is improving.  I have noticed that she has gotten faster with those math facts.  Nice work!”

I’m SO proud of my little girl.  SO proud.  The last quarter started on Monday.  The teacher’s goal for the last quarter for AR is 10 points.  Em was ready to take 11 points worth of tests on Monday.  The internet was down on Monday, so she took a test on a 9 point book on Tuesday.  She didn’t have time to finish her other 2 point book, so she did that on Wednesday.  That’s right:  Day 3 of the quarter and she’s met her AR goal.  We get her a reward when she’s got a good report card.  This time, with the help of her dad, she’s decided on a new game, Kinect Rush.  It’s supposed to be like Disneyland Adventures, but WAY better.  We’ll see.

I’m watching Game Change, the HBO movie.  Have y’all seen it?  It’s based on the book about the 2008 presidential election.  I read the book a while ago and it’s very good.  So I was excited to watch the movie.  It’s actually very good, though one-sided.  And I mean that in the less controversial way as far as a criticism.  The book was about all the major candidates from both sides.  The movie is about McCain, but mostly Palin.  It’s very good.  It actually does a great job of showing Palin at the beginning as a mom who really cares about her kids and how they’re perceived.  Then it shows how she doesn’t know anything about anything.  Now we’re up to the power trip part of the program.  Julianne Moore’s done a great job of portraying her.  It’s doing a pretty good job now of showing McCain’s dismay at the negative crap that Palin spewed out there.  It’s very engaging.
