Tonight was Emeline's back to school night. She has 19 in her class at SDA. It is sad that not too many parents came. I was happy to finally be able to see her room and officially meet the teacher. She is a family friend and has been teaching since forever, Mrs. Stephens. She is very old fashioned yet very organized. It will be a great year I am sure. I was told by the teacher that Emeline's daddy "needs to step it up." Emeline has been late 2 out of the first 4 days of school and her back pack and lunch were left at home today! I lay her clothes out every morning and make sure her stuff is by the door. I do what I can. At least daddy is trying. He did bring me home a lemon tort cake and coffee ice cream, as make up gifts. Can't get mad at a guy for trying. We are all having a tough time with our new schedules. I guess it is true that the family just would not function without the mommy. We just got to stick it out and work together for the next 5 weeks. It doesn't help that we have a bad heat wave hitting us too. At least tomorrow is already Wed.
