Me, Rebecca, and Rochelle waiting for the bus at Hoover Middle School (that gray building looking very like a jail in the background). I put both shots on of the girls; one almost smiling and one that shows how they really feel. (Kidding - they'd been laughing until I pointed the camera - they were embarrassed by grannie pointing a camera - totally uncool).
I came home in time to catch Elcie waiting. When her nice driver saw what I was doing he suggested we get a picture of her on the lift.
I may join a writing class for seniors. David, my Tuesday coffee date (which now includes my friend Janet - we're growing) teaches it (correction - no he doesn't; it's even better - next post if I remember) and it sounds like fun. I'll check it out today. It starts at nine. Perhaps my blog quality will improve.
Today I take Ray to the doctor a little before one, pick up Tim (son), pick up Elcie at Rivera with wheelchair, go to the elementary school which houses the physical therapy unit. They have her new crutch tips (she really goes through them), will fix the crutch holder on her chair, and possibly measure her for the new electric. Maybe we can finally get one that works. This will be our third try.
Oh, a friend will pick Ray up. I won't leave him stranded at the doctor's office. Busy day.
Rebecca had no homework last night. Finished it all in class. She's so proud of herself and she should be. Elcie asked her teacher for more math homework. It's all review but it will help her speed with simple calculations. Once all of them learn to add, subtract, multiply and divide in their heads, their work will go three times as fast (at least). The finger counting really slows them down. I'm hoping for a good math year for all.
I'll try to get back later but wanted to get the pictures up.
Take care everyone.
