I don't really have much to say but I am itching to write SOMETHING ... and I haven't updated since last month- gasp. So here is a brief update of my life:
The job is going well and keeping me quite busy. On Friday, I took my protege to Wal-Mart. Every week, I am supposed to take him on a "community outing" and we go to the destination of his choice. Apparently, he's a big fan of our nation's number one retailer. So we went to the local outpost and cruised the aisles looking at merchandise from Communist China, but he didn't end up buying anything. ( Smart boy.) I can't decide whether my favorite part was when I tried out the hula hoops or when I put silly hats on him and took pictures.
This week I'm going in to his school for a few hours to observe him in the classroom.
Right now I'm reading "The Indian in the Cupboard" with him. It's a book that was read to me when I was in fourth grade, by the beloved Mrs. Roland. I really loved it then, and I hope that my student will feel the same way about it by the end.
I'm hoping to do some Mother's Day activities with him this week. If the stars align and all that, we may come up with some sort of masterpiece for his mom.
Well, I can sense this is waning into drivel. Sigh. I'll try to do better next time.
