I took this photo from my cell phone after dropping Kyle off for his first day of his sophomore year. It was nasty yesterday. We received almost 5 inches of rain. Nice day to send the kiddies back to school!
Kyle has always struggled in school. It is a known fact. Known to me, Kyle, his grandparents, the guidance counselors and so on. I dread the beginning of the year because I know I have to work just as hard as Kyle does.
Last year was especially tough. It ended with me meeting with the child study team, guidance counselors and I believe the assistant principal trying to establish a plan for Kyle. I thought we had a plan for this year.
Hence the word, thought!
He came home yesterday with his paperwork. He is in a freshman homeroom, but taking sophomore classes. Even though there were a few classes he didn't pass last year. For example, he failed Algebra. But, he is taking Geometry this year!
So, I went to school with Kyle this morning. You stand out in the sea of teenagers all trying to meet with a guidance counselor because their schedules are wrong also. The lady at the front desk picked me out of the crowd in a heart beat. And it is not because I'm taller than all of these kids. Kyle alone is a good 7 inches taller than I am.
I did receive some answers that I hope turn out to be true by the end of the week. He should be settled and in the correct classes by then. Now, all that is left is finding a good tutor for him for the year.
Is it Christmas break yet?
