Tomorrow he had another opportunity to take the day off. Although we just started school today, my sister-in-law heads to South Africa (she lives in Cali and we only see her two times a year) and I wanted to the kids to get to see her one last time before she shipped off. Goddess was so excited to go and is happy to spend another day with her Aunt. Handsome was torn.
"I want to go but if I do I won't get a perfect attendance."
"So Goddess will be there and I won't?"
Abuela and Abuelo will be there with Goddess and I won't be there?"
Yes and Yes but it is up to you honey.
Tonight he came over and asked if I could call my girlfriend Clary to see if she could get him off the bus. He came over not once but three times. Finally saying, "can you call her and let her know?"
I called, she said yes and Handsome is going to school will Goddess and I visit family.
Seems strange to know we will be away from him but I trust that my friend is nearby and if necessary she will be there for him if something happens during the day like I get a call from the school nurse or something.
We are so very proud of him. School is where he needs to be I just figured one more family visit but I am thrilled he wants to go to school and so is his aunt.
