Time Flies!

We have 1st quarter conferences at school today for Courtney. I can't believe 1 quarter of the school year has passed by already!! I always go to conferences....never missed one for Jeremy. There are lots of parents out there that never go once the kids hit middle and high school. Courtney begs me to go (some teachers give extra credit if the parents show up....like she needs the extra credit!). Do you always go to conferences....how about once they are older??

i agree, the year is slipping by. as long as it goes into stand still mode from thanksgiving to new years, i'm okay:0)

maybe i'm optimistic, but i can't imagine both chad and i NOT going to all conferences. we are just like that. especially since we know that our kids can be a handful (and if now, heaven knows they will be as teenagers too:0), so we want a full report. to make sure the teachers are being respected.

We, like you, always went to every conference and every activity our children were in. I can't imagine parents who don't. We, as grandparents, also attend the activities the grands are in.

Yep...we always go. Both Mark and I. Although we only have 1 in school right now so it's not too tough. I just hate how the teachers sometimes hurry right through and not give us the "goods" I want to know EVERYTHING. Good and Bad.

I am sure we'll always go even when they are older. :)

Well - so far I go --- Shaine goes too when he can, but this time he is watching the kiddos while I go. It is hard when there are four children now!! Eeeks. Never thought I would have four kids. WOW!

We had conferences last week but did not get a chance to talk to anyone. They were running behind and we ended up leaving because Frank had to get home for a conference call. I got a phone call yesterday and we had a phone conference with Elijah's advisor. I guess I didn't realize that conferences were optional...I assumed everyone would go to see what's going on with their kids!

My corn dryer problem was not so bad last night. The wind switched directions so I didn't hear a thing!

I can't believe it is the end of the 9 weeks next week. Time flies.

Yes, we always, always go to the kids school conferences too.

Well, I only have one kid, but yes, I always go to conferences and presume that I will be on Alex's butt throughout middle school and high school. I'm with HJ, my child can be a handful and a procrastinator so I think it's good for society as a whole if I attend conferences ;)

I also went to all my sons school conferences. I also went to all of the school activities when they were growing up. I feel that is just part of being parents.
Have a nice day.
Did you get your corn out before the weather turned bad?
Have a great weekend.
