Autumn REALLY wanted to go to school today. She's a rule follower. She was afraid of the repercussions if she missed a day because of threats made by her teacher to her class at the beginning of the year. Cathy had to explain to her that those comments were directed to those students who made it a regular habit to miss school. Autumn wants me to take her homework in to the teacher anyway.
She had already dressed and even started walking to the bus when we decided she should come back in and go to bed, despite her objections. She laid (lay?) there for a while reading an American Girl catalog and was asleep by the time I went to work.
