No News Is Good News, Right?

This is definitely one of those posts that only exists because of NaBloPoMo!

Essentially, I've got nothing to say. Ellie is staying home from school today (Monday) and we're hopeful that she'll be able to go back to school tomorrow, but she needs to be fever-free for at least 24 hours, so we'll play it by ear.

We're working on our applications to the various private schools we're applying to, including (in no particular order) Portland Jewish Academy, Catlin Gabel School, Oregon Episcopal School and Touchstone Elementary. Two of them, Catlin and OES, require "parent questionnaires" that I'm currently stressing about. 

Oregon allegedly has the second highest class sizes in the nation, and Scott and I not happy with the lack of physical education, music and art in most of the Portland Public Schools. And then there was the article in today's Oregonian about how great it is that more Oregon students are passing the state math tests because teachers are focusing the classroom on the kids who learn it the slowest.

Ok, so besides not really having anything worth mentioning here, I also have a killer headache. So I think I'll cut this ramble short.
