So, I get home at 5 every day and immediately buckle down reading and writing about children's literature and education theory. I can't complain; I enjoy every minute of it. I get home at 5 because the last 4 weeks have been packed with reading intervention trainings. The first 2 weeks was the second round of my Orton-Gillingham certification training, which is about a 3-year process to become a certified reading intervention specialist for children with dyslexia. This week and last week I have been helping coach the new trainees for the Greenville Augustine Project, a non-profit that provides reading intervention tutors for children from low-income families. I'm learning so much.
Khan has been going to Doggy Day Camp at the Pet Hotel of a nice man we now call "Uncle Gary." Khan has successfully unlearned everything we've taught him, which has given me some insight into how parents must feel when they send their children to junior high school :)
But that's okay. He's well taken care of, 'Uncle Gary' adores him, and he gets to play all day with other dogs.
(Thank you, Yiota! It came on the perfect day, right when I needed some light cheer from the other side of the world!)
