to keep this from just being a total whine-fest tonight....I will just let you all know what happened with R's community service grade.
dh talked to the vice principal at R's school today. the reason for the F was because it is a pass or fail class. well......then shouldn't it be rated P or F?!?!? anyway....whatever! he also said that community service grades don't carry on up to high school so it won't continue to haunt R for the rest of his life! lol!! we knew there would be some adjustment issues between being bored in school and then all of a sudden actually having to think and do homework. if this is the worst of it (and is over with now) I am happy to accept it!
