Alan got a 100% on his first math test. I was pleased, nice way to start off school. His teacher wanted all the parents to sign them and return them. I thought tests usually were signed only for bad grades?
Saturday we saw an ad in the paper for a 2005 Nissan Sentra with low mileage. So the three of us went to look at it. It seemed to have some dings and a little wear, but we decided to test drive it. First, I had trouble turning the key and moving the shift into drive - then when we went to test the CD player with a Killers CD - the CD player ate it. So although I drove it, we didn't buy the car. We figured it didn't like me/us :)
Sunday we had soccer. We played the team coached by Alan's coach from last year (a good guy). Because the weather was so iffy, both teams had few players show up. We had 5, they had 6. So they played 4 on 4 with 1 in goal for each team. Alan played goalie for a bit. He also scored, but into our goal :(. We lost, but Alan had a good time.
I also finally got Alan's desk organized (I'd pilled stuff on it all summer and didn't get a chance to clean it). It looks much better. There's still a lot of stuff in some drawers that he doesn't need (it used to be my desk - he won't need my extra checks!), I'll get to that eventually.
I hung out today after dropping Alan off to give out birthday party invites. Since we didn't invite the whole class, I had to figure out who some of his classmates are. I was able to give some out, but not all. I then stopped at his old daycare to invite the daughter of a staff member that Alan befriended over the summer. It seemed awfully empty there, I wonder if they have fewer kids these days?
It turns out one of Alan's classmates is repeating kindergarten. She'll be 7 in June. I talked to the mom about the special ed staff here and put in a good word for them - I hope the mom gets the help her daugher needs.
Someone's watering the condo bushes outside my window. I waved. Our condo is slightly below ground, so our windows are about 1/2 foot of the ground!
