Finished the first of three encyclopedia articles I’ve promised for March first. It comes in exactly at the maximum word count. Go me! Now I can happily turn to the seminar paper I’ll present to the department in a week and a half. Ack! A week and a half! Thank goodness the interlibrary loans are coming in at a good pace.
One of eldest’s teachers phoned today to inform me of some altercations and misbehaviours on eldest’s part. She took exception to some boys spoiling the play of her group and started shoving them away when the teachers wouldn’t assist. Shoving back, of course, ensued. Two recesses were forfeit for both, as punishment, and a talking-to followed at home.
