Snow, basset hounds, report card.

After two days in the 70s, it snowed here today...  It didn't stick because the ground was so warm - can you see any snowflakes in this bus pickup photo?

Vince and I procrastinating with selfies.  I wish I had his eyebrows.

Vince has a pet sitting gig this weekend.  Two basset hounds.  They clearly love each other.

Vince totally did it.  It was a lot of work - mostly on Vince's part, but also my dad tutored in Chinese and I ran a tight ship.  It wasn't a supreme stretch about Vince knowing the content, it was all those things I thought didn't need to be taught - planning, organizing, thinking of test taking strategies, figuring out priorities, figuring out what the teacher wants and cultivating the desire to try or try a little harder.  This next term, I told Vince I'm not going to be able to help him as much keep track of work as I'm busier and out of the house more & my Dad's in China for a month soon - it's going to be up to him to manage his time and his assignments. Anyways, that's the goal - for me to be totally uninvolved with any sort of schoolwork/leisure logistics.  I think before he didn't even think this was possible, but I'm sensing that now that he knows he can do it and how much work it takes (which is manageable), he will endeavor to continue.
