I definitely feel like my middles school math skills are improving, either that or Jaida is just a really good teacher. Today she didn’t have much homework to do so we focused on other fun activities we could do together. Since it had been some time since we read Harry Potter she decided to do that. I read to her again while she colored printed off coloring pictures from the internet for about an hour.
After that we talked about what we had read about and how much we like Hermione. You could tell after talking why Jaida looks up to her so much. Jaida is very quiet but also very smart, so she can easily relate to her character. The more I get to know Jaida the more I remember how much I hated middle school. This is such a rough time for them, they’re awkward, kids are mean, and they themselves are kind weird. It’s true that Jaida, I think, is pretty mature for a 12 year old but, there will be times where she’ll say something and I’m reminded of her real age. After we finished talking about the book I asked if she would play chess with me again and she got super excited! She looked at me like that was a dumb question, of course she wanted to play her game. We played chess and talked for the rest of the time.
