my boy JD is stuggling at school, he's in grade one and is having the hardest time learning to read, he sees a kiddy shrink at the moment who is testing him for ADHD and dislexia, that's all good...expensive but atleast we are getting some help. I have to say that I am really disappointed in the education system over here as he went through preschool and kindy and at the end of both years his reports all said he was doing well. It was only this year when he was beginning to get home work that we pick up on the massiveness of his "problem". Now I do volunteer work once a week in his class to observe how much help he gets...I don't blame the teacher at all...I totally blame the over crowding of the classes because there are so many kids missing out on the help they need. SHAME ON YOU EDUCATION DEPARTMENT!!! Our kids are our future...and for some...the future is not bright.
ok enough of my ranting...yesterday when we were at the kiddy shrink office JD (6) decided that he would like to buy me some flowers because I am a "beautiful mummy" and I make him happy. So after the appointment we went to the florist down stairs and they had baskets and baskets of old stock silk flowers for $1 for a grocery bag full!!! Anyhoo I spent a whole $7...which included some stuff that JD just "had to have for art".
My bunch of flowers had a few sprigs of Geraldton Wax...made me think of my home state and my family over there.
