This morning I had a student crying from feeling so ill. Parents came and got him and then.. I am walking my class back from gym and here comes child--singing--bringing treats for his sister's b-day. I smiled and said I was glad he'd come back to work-mom tells me he is so ill we are just going to take him to the party with us. No wonder this child rarely has his work, or meets a requirement. Child just grins at me like -ha-ha. You know it is Monday.
