You're the third one to suggest that. I figured the kids could
help with the shoe tying. As far as buttoning pants, in
California in my district, we are completely discouraged from
doing that for kids in K. I didn't do any of that last year,

No, I don't have a para-pro or aide ... what's that???? (Just

Don't laugh, but I tripped over someone's foot while trying to
get around them to catch up to my husband in the airport. We
were picking up family. I broke the arm during the fall, landed
on my chin, and this past Friday, had laser eye surgery to
repair two tears in my retina -- also probably caused by the
fall. And may have to have another set of the same, as I think
another tear developed. I will know more about that on Thursday.
I may be off a half day here and there in the first weeks of
school, running to orthopedics and opthamology. BTW, I do
recommend laser eye surgery. Piece of cake! Too bad it wasn't
the kind that would make me lose the glasses!
