I decided to write all of what happens in here as a summary of the day. To write only the happy makes it feel lopsided. besides, I had a very hard day today. Noam's teacher said he's too timid to say much in class, won't even ask her how to do his work if he doesn't know, just sits there doing nothing. he walks around by himself at recess a lot, and often appears spaced out at circle time. he went from his last teacher (at a small school) strongly recommending that he be tested for the gifted class, to a lot of C's because the teacher can't tell what he knows. i feel sad for him. and panicked.
we had a nice party for Farah's birthday tonight.
