The cooler weather lately has encouraged the citrus on the patio to finally start looking ripe. I am hopeful we'll have fresh tangerines in December, but I'm not sure how much longer the Meyer lemons will take. I am tickled by how well they're doing outside after having them inside last winter (and no fruit to show for it). Vogon bought another rosemary plant. We'll see how long it lasts since it's one of the two plants where I seem to not have a green thumb.

I haven't written much this week because I forgot to take an acidophilus supplement along with the antibiotics my doctor prescribed on Monday and my digestive tract has let me know how it feels about that. My diagnosis, as usual, is another sinus infection. Laurel's was a minor case of bronchitis. She is feeling much better.

After a lot of discussion, we decided to exit Laurel from our district-level gifted program and see how she does in the school-level gifted program at our neighborhood school. We were advised that the last few girls that exited the program stayed at their neighborhood schools and did not return. Right now we're looking for a happy medium between academic challenge and not being over-frustrated, so I hope the school-level program meets that for her. So far, she is tickled pick to be back at our neighborhood school.

well, a tickled pink laurel is well worth it, i think. :D you're such a good mom.

I did a lot of soul-searching on why we should keep Laurel in the district-level program. She will be evaluated for readmission into it for third grade, but it was a big change to go from regular classwork to the district-level program without the school-level program in between. I think Laurel will enjoy the school-level program because she's really happy being back among kids she's been in classes with before.

I will take a picture of the tangerines this afternoon!

thank you! ask laurel to stick her head in the pic, too, she's growing so fast.

you made a great choice, there. you know the soul searching i had to do with killi. i was told she could graduate hs at around 11, but i wanted her to have a bit of fun in her life, so i did a ton of enrichment stuff at home. if laurel is happy and learning, and not pushed too hard, or bored, that's the place for her. :D
