That School is Crazy!

I am still so frustrated with the school and their absolutely ridiculous and arbitrary way of deciding who is gifted.  Starling is so smart, especially for a girl!  How many girls can there possibly be who got a B in math last year?  I’ll bet Starling is the only one.  She is such a wonderful and curious little girl.  I found her after school today, measuring away for some assignment.  Why does she have to be held back in that way?  She learned measurement LAST year and she needs to be challenged!!!!!

Warning, genius crossing!

Meanwhile, the gifted teacher acted like he had no idea what I was talking about when I told him that a violin is a girl’s instrument.  Hello?  And this is a TEACHER!  Wow!  Finally he agreed to give Merlin another instrument.  The first day he came home with a practice drum pad.  Well, we marched that right back.  Now Merlin has a guitar, of all things.  Oh well, he seems to like it anyway, and I guess the rest of us will have to walk around with ear plugs in while he insists on practicing every single day.  UGH.

He'd better not start listening to heavy metal.

At least Starling is one of the most popular girls in her class.  She has tight knit little clique and they are all very pretty to top it off.  I couldn’t be happier to have her friends over.

I went in one more time today to ask about gifted classes for Starling and the office lady told me  that the decision had been made and I needed to move on.  I even offered to give up Merlin’s spot for her and was told, “It doesn’t work that way.”  I don’t see why not.  It is all so frustrating that it has given me a my grain!

    Your family is just so beautiful. Couple of things you seem so busy have you thought about hiring a nanny or a maid. They could just come when Ròbert is gone to work for the day. Also have you thought about homeschool Merlin. This way he could help the maid and save you money!

      have thought of hiring a nanny and a maid but Röbert claims we can’t afford it. OMG! Have Merlin stay home????!!! When would I get my work done? I just heard about homeschooling recently and I do not get it at all.

    I love your decor, so stylish and unusual! And I noticed dog cushions in your latest picture of lovely Starling. Do you like dogs? Do you have a dog?

    My littles are numero uno with me! The people at that school just don’t seem to understand. They actually told me I had to leave the office yesterday. Some nonsense about disrupting their workday. Huh?
