We also learned to use the family locker rooms rather than the Women's General as a number of females seem to think everyone is comfortable with unnecessary nudity and don't seem to understand how a shower curtain works.
Friday we cleaned up, finished all the laundry and generally took it easy.
It wasn't our best week, but we did get some things accomplished. Frankly, while I don't regret taking the Catholic homeschooling gym class this Spring, I won't be doing it in the fall. Monday mornings are so important to our routine and our school and to lose all of Monday morning is difficult. I'm also desperately hoping my friend can get an AHG troop started nearby for the Fall. The 50 minute drive to AHG every two weeks is very tiresome and I know the Pathfinders needed a leader and I was probably the best one to do it under the circumstances, but I am looking forward to not needing to plan and keep up with the meetings like being a leader has required. I just have enough on my plate without it.
Oh, one other thing that happened this week was that I dealt with our first bullying situation. I'm trying to look on the bright side that I made it over 9 years before it happened. Still never pleasant. Fortunately it isn't a girl we see often and the adults who are present when we do see her have been informed of the situation, been very apologetic, and have said they will speak to the girl as well as her mother and be more attentive to her in the future.
I will say though that I am proud of Cecilia for how she handled it. She never returned meanness nor did she get upset so as to give the girl any power over her. I'm heartily impressed, take no credit for any of it, and hope all my children will mature so well.
Last night I got very little sleep. Either I was dealing with Thomas or Brigid but they coordinated well so as to keep me awake most of the night. I'm desperately hoping to get some better sleep to start this week off well. And hopefully Cecilia won't need to make me another one of these:
No, the "please leave alone" sign didn't work. Clearly graphics are necessary for 2 and 4 year olds. :)
