I may have written that Owen’s teacher–the guy–is leaving at the end of the summer. Owen loves this teacher. He has behaviors with the assistants but with this guy–Owen is, almost always, the picture perfect student. It is entertaining to watch Owen attempt to please Mark, almost googly eyed with the eye contact. It is sweet. He is leaving the program and going to do home hours.
Home hours…you know, what we are having problems with filling? So, I thought maybe he could fill the home hours. And he was totally interested. Except he only has mornings available. I said we would try to get Owen’s school hours changed. Every team in his school has one 10:30-4:30 time slot. The slot no one wants. His teacher could come from 8-10am. Owen could get the bus at 10 and be home by 5pm. And be DONE for the day. No teachers here for dinner. Yea, sitting for dinner is a problem but I could work on it. No one here till 6 or 7pm. In a word, ideal!
Nope, nada, not happening! His school says the schedule is set. If they change Owen then they have to change someone else. Sigh. It could have been nice. And I am disappointed. But I guess it was not meant to be. That’s okay. The administration say we are going to be very pleased with his teacher this year. I just can’t wait to find out.
And there is no knitting going on. I went to bed early last night. Cam’s tutor quit. What a summer it has been. Crazy. Is it a full moon?
