The Foibles of the Anti-hero

Tomorrow marks the end of an era. It will be my son’s last day at Fraser Academy. He’s been in their inclusion based program since kindergarten but it is time to move on. Their school year isn’t officially over until the end of next week but we have transitions to make. Fraser has been a year-round program (which is the way to go, in my opinion). With the move to a mainstream classroom, one with larger class sizes, we are also moving to a standard school year. This has meant struggling to find a good solution for summer child care. Next Monday the boy will kick off his first summer camp experience. It’s a day camp, most of the week, but one night per week will include a sleep over. Giving me an evening off (and out) and hopefully giving the boy some memorable and fun experiences. I have some anxiety about this, fearing it will backfire and he will utterly hate it, but these fears are unfounded. I hope. Guess we’ll find out soon enough. And after that I can begin worrying about his transition to the new school in the Fall, for fifth grade. One major stressor at a time, please.

At least my aforementioned Science Museum mystery has been solved. After blogging and tweeting about it I discovered the mysterious firebender in question was actually the lovely Leigha Horton. Hi Leigha!

Five other good things:

Last night I took the boyfriend out for his very first pizza farm experience (in Stockholm, WI) which we both enjoyed. But tonight I’m cooking at home. And today’s Heavy Table recipe roundup seems to be directed right at me! I plan to make at least two of these recipes. First the tasty looking chickpea cutlets (paired with some Pimm’s + lemonade - that would be delicious). And perhaps the pecan pie for dessert. My son would rather have me make this vegan twinkie recipe but as long as I’m the one doing the baking? Pecan pie will WIN.

  1. No way– I’m being mentioned right alongside female orgasms *and* John Waters? I do believe I have arrived!

    Thanks so much, Sharon, for the mention and link!

    And vegan twinkies and pecan pie? You’re my hero.

  2. Doh! CRAP. I meant Sharyn. And here I pride myself on spelling names correctly. That’s what happens when I leave comments in the middle of the night when I’m supposed to be sleeping. Apologies, apologies!

    I’m guessing all of us photography nerds view the world as if through a lens. As a result I think we end up seeing things others would never notice.

    Haha, yep, me too. I am always trying to explain this to others. :)
