Laine was crying before bed on Monday night because she didn't want to go to school the next day. Why? "None of my friends are going to be there." When I asked her where they were going she explained that their moms wouldn't make them go to school and I was making her go so she'd be the only one there. The real reason she didn't want to go to school was because of P.E. Really! They are doing tennis right now and Laine doesn't like it and her friends don't either. So they all decided they would convince their parents to let them stay home so they could get out of PE. To her credit, it did sound kind of torturous -- the kids stand in two lines and one person hits the ball over the net then the next person has to hit it back. If you miss or hit it into the net then you're out. So Laine was sitting on the side for most of PE and hating that she didn't get to participate and that she was so bad at tennis. I think they need to revise their lesson plans by grade. It ended up that PE was as awful as she expected it to be but her friends were there too. Imagine that!
