Movin' on... (past the mad)

I was getting ready for work Friday morning, and I heard

"ooooooo,  sooooooooo angry"

for a minute, I thought it was my conscious, but then realized Isaiah was going potty and studying the counter top items..

I knew Friday would be big for us.  I just prayed.

We met with the principal first.  Went well.  She apologized and agree the line crossing incident shouldn't have happened.  Then we were joined by his teacher and the special ed teacher.  We confronted.  We discussed.  We disagreed, a bit.  We (Rex and me) won.  At least this battle.  We have some specific things they will do in the future.  And several that they won't do again. 
The teacher apologized.  She meant well, but still crossed a line.

I later told Elijah that we had been to the school that day.  He thought we were mad at him.  I assured him, this momma bear was mad at the teacher, and not him.  That she made some bad choices.  I reminded him that, like I promised I would always protect him, and do what was best for him.  That nobody could mess with my baby bear cubs.  He seemed happy.  We talked about some things he should expect in the future.  I'll be checking.

And then, we got to move on with our weekend.  And it was pretty good. 

finishing it off in concert.

Thanks to everyone who has sent me e-mails, stopped me in a hallway at church or at the gym on Saturday, posted on my facebook, texted or called.  It is such an encouragement to know that people care, identify with us and have survived what we are living through now. 

Guess that is why God tells us to bear one another's burdens.  Thanks for sharing ours. 

Oh, just one more thing.  To all of you who keep telling me you read my blog----please feel free to officially "follow" me.  Professional bloggers need followers, and I'm praying God opens this door one day.
