Yesterday was a day off school for a PD day (or are they called PA days now? I don't know.) It was parent-teacher interviews for the primary schools. I didn't even get to take advantage of it and sleep in, as our interview was for 9:15 in the morning. It was probably better that way because it made sure that we were up and out early.
The interview went well. Cameron is having a much better year this year and is a lot happier. I really like his teacher and she loves him. Even though he hasn't been identified, he struggles in some areas. She said that he is so smart and is wonderful to listen to in class because he has tonnes of great ideas ... he just has a hard time getting them on paper. She's willing to make allowances for that, even though he doesn't have an identification. Anyway, it was a very possitive interview and we all came away feeling that we are moving in the right direction for him.
After the interview I told the boys that I was going out Christmas shopping. Cameron asked if he could come along. I was shocked as this boy loves being home without parents around. The two of us headed out. We went to the mall and had a wonderful afternoon together. We talked, joked, giggled, and enjoyed each other's company. The whole afternoon I didn't hear "Can we go home now" at all. We enjoyed a leisurly lunch, went for a tea later in the afternoon, and topped the day off at Toys R Us to look around. He even helped me make dinner last night! It was a great day! These are the moments I cherish.
