Another day of Dungans

Thank you for all of the kind thoughts and emails concerning Grammie. Information continues to be sparse and mixed. Unfortunately, I am getting the information 3rd and 4th hand and the bits and pieces I receive do not make much sense. I am hoping that today I will be able to talk to to the physician and get a better picture of what is going on with her. For the time being, I know that she has a bunch of stitches in the back of her head and they still have some concerns regarding her back. Nothing more has been mentioned to me regarding internal bleeding or a blood clot. However, I still have little clue of what is going on. At this point, I have heard the gamut.

On the home front things are pretty good. The kiddos are all busy with school and tae kwon do. You may notice that I say all the kids. With the demise of GSX's tumbling program, Ainsley began tae kwon do this week. I really do not know how wise of a decision that is. I don't know that it is appropriate to make her any more dangerous. She is dangerous enough.

Of course, I say that as she continues to receive multiple blue stickers every week. In fact, last week she received a blue sticker on everyday but one. It still shocks me. So much so, I met with the teacher to find out what the problem was. It turns out that the minute she breaks the kindergarten threshold she apparently transforms from a Graham beating, Sydney slapping, smart mouthy little twerp into a perfect student bent on helping others and doing her best to ensure class harmony.

It is not an ill conceived joke on her parents. Ainsley is an absolute angel in class - a true delight.

She is, apparently, truly deserving of her excellent marks in behavior.

She has now so completely surpassed what her brother and sister achieved in the way of behavior that I feel guilty making any comparisons. Suffice it to say, as of this date she has already achieved more blue stickers than her brother or sister did in an entire year - combined.

There, enough said.

Well, I had best be off. Purpose is stirring again.
