day 3944 - 110/365. Odin Plays Odin! I.

he’s standing in the center monologuing! the whole class did a great job in their school play. very proud of them all! while odin isn’t shy standing up in front of a crowd hasn’t been one of his strengths. doubly proud of him for doing in and projecting his voice.

odin in his garb. not quite as impressive without the eye patch ( d’oh! forgot to have him put it on ) but a great costume nonetheless!

day 3350: first day of third grade!

i’m not sure odin could be more excited to go back to school!

he had a great first day. a sure sign that he’s in a waldorf school – he’s most excited about being able to work in his class knitting projects at home this year instead of feeling rushed to get them in class.

he’s not as excited about having his picture taken before school, hence the “fake smile” :-)

odin and i were moving stuff out of my temporary post-fire work digs at odin’s school and it really took everything in me to not follow the fire alarm test instructions to see what would happen.

fear of being sent to the principle’s office is still a powerful behavior modifier.

after the fire at organic valley headquarters, we’re still figuring out where the displaced folks are going to end up for an extended period of time. for a short period of time some of us ended up in odin’s waldorf school, which also used to be a the public school so it has the “feel” of both worlds. in some ways, it feels just like a school i might have gone to when i was a was a kid. and in other ways it feels like a waldorf school. they sure know how to put a chalkboard to good use!

yes, i’ve literally been sent to first grade room. odin never tires of saying, “ok bye! have fun in first grade!” when i leave the house in the morning. all things considered, it’s not bad at all expecially considering it’s only a half a block from my house. and, on occasion, i get to sit in the hallway on linoleum floors and almost feel like i could be back in grade school while listening to listening to violin practice.

but it’s only temporary, they have to get the school ready for the kids coming back in the fall and we have to find more appropriate digs while the headquarters gets rebuilt.
