Hey everyone! Sorry that I have been missing in action lately but it has been one hectic week. Of course the Princess had her first week of school and now that I am part-time so that I can drop her off and pick her up, we’ve all been just trying to adjust to our new schedules. Princess has really enjoyed school thus far, but this Mommy is surprised at the amount of money the school has asked for so far. Apparently, the Canadian Government has not allotted the school enough money to fulfill their budget and has asked for the parents to come up with the rest in the name of education. I have been asked to “donate” $100 for the Princess as according to the school, this is what she will cost for the school year. We’ve also been asked to come up with the year’s worth of pizza days as well have been sent 3 Scholastic book orders. It’s been three days and they are asking for $200!
Princess has already started Kinderdance at a local dance studio. Saturday morning, we got her all dressed up and off we went. There is only 1 word to describe what occurred during that class; CHAOS! Utter chaos. The instructor was off due to a death in the family and a student filled in. In one class of 10 children, only 2 listened the entire time. All the parents watched on and tried to intervene and tell their children to listen. For a six lettered word, it fell on deaf ears. The student at one point came out and asked for help controlling the class to which the director shrugged. Poor girl. One child put a hole in the wall, two others fought the entire time and most hung upside down from the bars on the mirrors. Like I said, chaos. The director ensured us that within 4 weeks that the class would be under control. I’ll believe that when I see it. After dance, we were off to a family BBQ. Members from England were supposed to show up, but didn’t, but that’s ok as other family was there and we had a great time and great food.
Have a great day and we will see you soon!
