Ok... this is kind of hard to explain... Just LONG... But... My brother has two darling daughters going into 2nd grade and Kindergarten. My brother is divorced and his wife is a little crazy. She has a 13 year old that's my brother's step daughter that continually runs away. She's left my 2 nieces ALONE for hours when she has been babysitting them. The 2 girls are usually just neglected get NO attention. It's just really sad. So... I had this great idea. My brother has been so torn trying to work out a way to help his girls. Well... I finally came up with the perfect plan. Their mom works by my school so I thought they could come to my school. We have a great after school program, and I love the teachers. It would work PERFECTLY. I was so excited. And... my school is on the way to my brother's ex-wive's work. Well.... I worried that my brother's ex wouldn't go for it. I never considered that my own principal wouldn't. We NEED students we only have 233 students in our entire school. Last year we had 310. I thought she would be happy to have them. NOPE.... she will not let them come. She said rude things to me, and I really took this personally. She says our Kindergarten is full, but it isn't. We only have 40 kids registered and our legislature staffs us at 50. It's just sad. I was heart~broken. I was just desperately hoping they could be near me where I could help them out. Oh well... another day.
