It seems there's a plague of sorts that's hit here. Audrey missed day four of school today. I wasn't sweating it or anything -- she is in kindergarten after all. She was really sad to miss her friends yet another day, but because her fever was 102.6, I figured she should maybe stay home.
Isaac went in today -- mostly because his class had a field trip and Martin was accompanying them. He was pretty sluggish but glad to be hanging with his friends and going on his first school escapade.
And as for Emily, well, she's still lying about getting her schoolwork in. It would be a shame to fail the 6th grade, but it seems she's giving it quite a try. I'm frustrated with her, but moreso the teacher as he only lets me know these things every six weeks. I'd think that he might tip me off to late assignments after a few days. Em is smarter than all of us, I'm afraid, and has figured out how to beat the stupid system. They probably won't keep her behind, and she'll get away with minimum effort. A genius, I tell you.
I did manage to squeeze in a workout when Martin returned from the field trip. Have I told you how much I don't like to run? I don't know why I keep doing it. The good news is that I get to go to my torturous cycling class at 7:30 tomorrow morning. I know you were hoping I'd get to go so I could complain about it later.
