Last year, Diana would typically have only one item in her backpack as homework. Not so this year. She's been pretty consistently having 2 things each night, math and reading. Another year, more responsibility.

She's already managed to lose her required-to-be-worn-at-all-times student ID. There are so many kids at the middle school, they all have to wear IDs like press passes at a convention. I'm not terribly amused by that or the $5 replacement cost or the "points" they take away for not wearing one. (Token economy, points for privileges; won't work with my kid, 'cause she doesn't want the so-called privileges they are offering.)

I suppose I should be grateful metal detectors and guards aren't present... though can it be far behind?
