This evening was Joey's open house. And I must say, I'm extremely impressed. If you believe what you hear on the news about St. Louis Public Schools, you're wrong. As was I. I have a feeling the district is pulled down because of some of the north side schools or some of the less-than-savory south side schools for that matter. Mason is different.
So long story short, we met his teacher, the music teacher, the art teacher, and the gym teacher. We also met his counselor. I'm going to give his counselor a call to let her know about Joey's little brother. I'm also going to have a talk with him about how it's not really appropriate to bring it up. I mentioned it to his teacher and she said she knows how to deal with it when he starts talking about it. All I wanted to hear.
School starts Monday. We're all very excited. Joey is just THRILLED! This is good. He won't be one of the kids who cries when we drop him off. Of course mommy will be one of the moms who cries when we drop him off. :)
Exciting stuff. Can't wait!
