We also had parent teacher conferences this month. I asked Elizabeth if there was anything she wanted us to talk about with her teacher. She said that she doesn't like the lock down drills. It broke my heart to hear this especially once I heard why. She said the kids all have to get down and be very quiet so 'they don't hear us. Mom who is they?'. That really broke my heart. Needless to say the teacher and I were both in tears talking about the implications of this needed drill. Many discussion have followed with our sweet E. We love her school and especially her teacher but it is tough.
Today we just returned from a weekend in Vancouver. Jeff and I both love that city. We went for Jeff's office party. Elizabeth was such a delight to have along. She has really learned how to join in on conversations and has such sweet stories to share.
