It's finally Friday! We're having meatloaf tonight....should be interesting. :grin:

We walked all the way around the pond last night. We have lots of wee fishies in there, along with humongeous frogs. The bat house was empty.....we also have a *lot* of Monarch butterflies hangin' out near the creek. I'll try to get pics of them tonight.

Speaking of the creek...we have dead fish. LOTS of them. Not sure why - the water is flowing; sluggishly, but it's flowing. I need to figure out how to remove the bodies...they're starting to stink. :sigh:

Herself is still having problems in school. Mom spoke to a couple of her teachers, so they at least know what we're (probably) dealing with. The counselor? Haven't heard back. She was *supposed* to be gathering up the emails of the teachers so that we can "coordinate homework". WTF? She is *supposed* to, by *law*, reevaluate my child if I request it...I did, and this is what she came up with. :grrrrrrrrrr: I am letting it go for the moment, but in a week or 2 I'll be back on her case. Herself needs help *now*....but I am being patient. That's not an easy thing for me......

It's raining here......we need it!

Squeaky wheels

Email the counselor, cc the principal, director of special ed or guidance, etc. Politely remind her/him of his commitment to do this and your request for reevaluation. Repeat at least once a week until you get a response.

They are over scheduled and don't have enough hours in the day - or at least that is my experience. Squeaky wheels get attention. (Nice, polite, homey squeaks, not shrill, strident, got to oil it or something will blow up squeaks - at least at this point. Think steel magnolia, not NYC attorney.)
