That was a wonderful statement, about looking at people through God's eyes.
there's a song out there... Give me your eyes so I can see...
D9 sang at the PTA last night with the choir at the elementary school. D17 was supposed to perform last night and tonight with the HS choir, but hurt her ankle and is not allowed to stand at all. D9 and D5 are both in a performance at church on Sunday--both services. D9 has a rather large speaking part and had it all memorized the first week she got the lines. they are both stars in a kids musical called Three Wee Kings.
These kinds of things really makes me feel that D9 is in the wrong environment at school. She sounds very intelligent, and she could very well be underachieving gifted. This is what our gifted teacher called my s10. It is difficult with these kids because they do not strive in the public school environment. they need to be challenged and need more one on one, and they love to debate/argue. oh, boy does my son like to argue.
have you talked with the school about those ideas someone gave you a while back?

Got an email from DH this morning that really upset and angered me.
I know you probably don’t want to email me, but what about the kids? Did you show them the email I sent to them? Are you guys going to be home on Saturday so I can call or would Sunday be better?
I have bent over backwards in an attempt to facilitate his relationship with the kids. Up until last week, he made NO effort to contact them via email and he has not talked to them on the phone in over a month.
After venting, raging, praying, and typing a couple of poison pen emails, I have settled on the following response:
I read the kids the emails that you sent them and have asked them several times if they want to email you back. They always say "later". I know prior to the weekend, they said they would just talk to you on the phone when you called.
It is not that I do not want to email you, however you have made it abundantly clear in the past couple of months that you do not want to chat. If you ask me questions, I answer them. In the future, I will acknowledge all emails with an "okay", so you know that I have received them.
The kids are spending Friday night with My sister and will be busy all day Saturday with her and their cousin, I have plans with friends for the weekend, and we will not be home until late afternoon on Sunday--after 5pm.

Frig..my fault on not telling you about the new thread..My mind is wandering to other things involving hair cuts..and not shoplifting..
Ok..the email..first off his email is filled with Drama and has damness all over it in that first sentence...
I like your response..I also like the fact you eluded to plans with "friends" and I would leave it at that even if he questions it..I would be a mysterious individual right now and see how he reacts..he's in a spot where he could really go crazy wondering what you are doing and he can't do jack squat about it..unless he's a really good swimmer and I'd say he's a pretty good one..but he ain't that good
