Day 47- Makkiah's promotion

Today was Makkiah's promotion from Headstart.

They had a nice ceremony at the park for all the kids.

Here is him with his "diploma" .

He goes on Monday for his Kindergarten testing and I'm confident that he will do great.

Mom discovered the teacher that Makkiah has a "personality confilct" with and it didn't take her long to figure out why that is.

Makkiah's teachers thought that Tyreque was my brother and couldn't believe that he is only 15.

They thought that he was several years older.

I put him to work at the end and he helped clean up and pack up tables.

While we were at the graduation Poppa went to have a meeting with the manager at Home Depot about our lawn mower.

Rod bought a lawn mower in March but I don't have a clue where he put the receipt.

The second time he used it he thought he had bent the blade but he didn't get a chance to return it before leaving.

So Poppa tried to use it and discovered that the motor mount was broken.

They wanted more to fix it than we payed for it and it wasn't our fault that it was broken.

I don't think the little bit of grass that we had at the time would do that to the lawn mower!

Poppa had his meeting and we ended up with a new lawn mower.

He didn't want another of the same one so he upgraded for us!!

Now we have a self propelled bagging mower. THANKS POPPA!!

Then Mom, Poppa and I went to a support group meeting.

We were the only ones there.

I think I'm going to be done with it.

It's pointless to go when noone shows up.

If they hadn't of come with me there wouldn't have been anyone there.
