We have two new occasional students in my class. I say “occasional” because custody issues make their attendance necessarily periodic.
I don’t know much about David. I’ve only seen him three times so far. He can only come once a month. He seems older, so I’d say maybe he’s about ten. He’s a model student; sits quietly, raises his hand (mostly) to ask questions, and responds to questions with appropriate (thoughtful, even!) answers.
Durendal comes twice a month. I’ve only seen him twice so far. He seems younger, so I think he’s about eight or nine. He’s also a helpful student so far but seems a little overwhelmed by the others when they get going. (I don’t blame him; so am I!)
