I hope you both all had a great weekend.
I finally took my teenager to the DMV to get his learner's permit. Now I'm regretting it cause he wants to practice driving all the time - he doesn't get that I have other things to do and that there's a gas shortage around here. AND his driving is kind of scary - he comes way too close the the right side of the road for my comfort, and he thinks he should be driving 5 mph over the speed limit. Ugh! And he say I make him nervous.
Still no replacement computers in sight for me. And now my principal is pushing our brand new superintendent to get rid of the tech lab altogether and just use iPads. Well, I don't mind the iPads, but we don't have any wi-fi in the building and you can't teach the tech standards on an iPad. She has a stockpile of about 30 iPads (1st generation) that she intends to give to classroom teachers for doing their assessments. But last week when I suggested using these for the students in the meantime, she said absolutely not pretty quickly - which is leaving me scratching my head now.
Jenna has finally started making some sounds (other than whining/crying) again. No real words, but definitely a step in the right direction. When I was home for the week and a half because of the storm, I wouldn't let her use the binkie/paci unless she really needed it. DH gives it to her all the time even when there's no need for it. I also worked with her on playing peek-a-boo and giving kisses (which she finds to be really funny). Her EI teacher was very pleased with her this week (she was a no-show last week). Too bad I can't be home to work with her more often.
