Olivia has a cold. It’s a doozy but it doesn’t keep her down because that’s Olivia for ya. She had started to croup before vacation so we gave her one dose of the steroids and brought with us on vacation. It nipped whatever was brewing in the bud. Then we came back and she was crouping a little bit – but not enough to warrant the steroids so we didn’t give her anymore. Well, the cold came on full blast.
She LOVES school. LOVES.IT! She is loving life and comes home talking about all these different kids (someone new every day). She started swimming class on Wednesday night. You’d have thought it was Christmas Eve. She was so excited asking every 5 minutes if it was time to leave for swimming yet. I didn’t go with her (back to school night at Maddie’s school) – but Arnie said she was practically jumping up and down waiting to go down to the pool. She was the polar opposite of the little girl who was screaming and crying.
Maddie is going to have an EXCELLENT year. She has a new teacher – first year for the teacher so she’s got a lot of new ideas. She’s a DOLL. Funniest thing: Monday M came home and said “I have 6 pages of math tonight (eek) “. We trudged through it and internally I was panicking over how she was going to be able to do extra curricular activities if the workload is that steep every night. They have a daily planner with their homework assignments in it but I didn’t think to check it. We just did the work.
Tuesday she comes home and says “Guess what – we did WAY too much last night for math!” So she was a bit ahead of things for the week wink.gif. We even covered homework for lessons that weren’t given yet. The teacher sent home a note apologizing and I emailed her back. Next time I question the amount of homework she’s been given we’ll re-check the planner which had the right homework assignment written in it.
I know I haven’t posted our Disney pics yet – I promise they’ll be posted this weekend.
