On a different topic, I saw Dylan's teacher at Costco tonight, and she commented on how well he has been doing in school. With a week like last week, it was nice to hear something nice about one of my kids. (and then tonight, he actually spent a good deal of time memorizing his poem for tomorrow...is there hope that he might actually be responsible?)
Finally, there is this girl in Spencer's class that he really likes. Well, today after school another girl came up to him and said that the other girl just likes him as a friend. I know he was trying to act like it didn't matter, but he talks about her all the time, and I could just feel his heart breaking. Not that I am encouraging any kind of romance for 8 year olds by any means, but...I felt sad for him. I am sure only the beginning of heart aches to come. I am totally not ready for these kind of things.
