We just set the boys up with the portable DVD player, while we go to conferences. I remember conferences being a big deal when I was a kid because we had a babysitter.
This is how it went:
Mica's teacher: "You guys have such a great boy! You should just be so proud. Thank you for working with him. I enjoy him so much."
Me: "Thank you"
*I was thinking, Is that it?!
I talked to her about him slowing down to do things. He tends to race through stuff at home. It wasn't a concern of hers. I also talked to her about the fact that Mica's super literal. He wanted to make real rocket shoes instead of color them. He wants me to go all out for birthday parties because he knows I can do *anything on the computer. She thinks any little kid is like that. Possibly so.
I asked her if she was worried about Mica getting bored in school? She said that thought has crossed her mind, but if he'd not saying that he's bored, then he's fine.
I asked if he gets along with the other kids? She said, "Yes Mica's very liked here."
When I was in school I got special help for being S L O W. My mom cried because I struggled so much. I had to stay inside for recess to get extra help. They thought about holding me back. They did hold Daddy back. I think we got lucky with our kids! Isaak seems to be doing well, but he's still a little young to tell. We have Isaak's conferences tonight.
We rushed home, and ate. Then Mica had testing for ju jitsu. He tested for his last yellow stripe. One more testing, and he gets his yellow belt. Again in ju jitsu there's a lot of testing before you get your next belt. I'll show more pictures for my next WW.
Mica had to do his rolls again, he did his strikes, he got out of wrist holds, he showed how to fall properly, and he showed how to get out of someone holding a knife at you. He was also asked a few questions about why they do certain things.
This is the defense for the knife attack:
