Elliott did not go to school today, and I don't think he'll be going to school for the rest of the year. When we told him last night that he did not have to go to school anymore, he underwent an amazing transformation. I hadn't realized how quiet and sad he had become until we got back our noisy, busy, happy Elliott. I worried he would regret not going to school when Cheyenne left on the school bus, but there wasn't a twinge.
I was listening today as he was playing with Marilla, and as he played family with their dolls, and "fixed the power" in their house, and played school, I realized that he will have plenty of stimulation here at home. School will come soon enough!
I also remembered how tiring my energetic Elliott is-- I need to go to bed now! :-)
