I am happy to report that Beth seems to be doing quite well. We haven’t had an “angry gram” in two weeks. Beth has had nothing but good things to say about school since she started. She has even gotten homework, which she has jumped into with enthusiasm and diligence (the lone exception being when we tried to get her to finish up an assignment at the Olive Garden, just before our meal was served – I have no idea what we were thinking). I haven’t spoken to her teacher since our last ominous but chance meeting, but I’m glad to take what I can get.
