Remember Namine’s difficulty with writing? Jessica and I decided to cut our losses and request the curriculum from the beginning of the year. We could not have received a more understanding response.
So we’re at the drive-through.
It took Namine almost an hour to complete a single handwriting worksheet. Our first thought is that it’s just Namine being obstinate, but it might belie a larger issue, one that has been brought up before. The problem is, no one can tell us if it’s merely stubbornness or something more.
For some time, Namine has tossed and turned in her bed. We went mattress shopping last week with the intention of finding something more comfortable, but the solution ended up being much simpler.
Our apartment is not that big, and it’s prone to getting messy. Jessica and I have this attitude toward cleaning that it’s more important to spend time with family than to spend cleaning up, resulting in an apartment that looks like it was the victim of a cyclone — sometimes, a cyclone consisting entirely of medical supplies.
Since our initial vacation plans had fallen through, we set out to meet with Namine’s online school personnel. The meeting itself is tomorrow, but since it’s more than four hours away, we are staying at a hotel tonight.
