I wrote our attorney 11/13/2000, "I wrote you 10/24/2000, 'To our surprise,
(ss) talked to (bm) and she doesnt want him to miss any Robotics meetings.
Shell pick him up after any Saturday meetings.'
(Bm) had agreed over the phone Thursday, 11/2/2000, with (ss) to pick
him up after Saturday Robotics class which is 11am-1pm in M**** B***.
(Ss) told her I
would fax the directions. I faxed the directions to her Kinkos
Friday evening 11/03/2000, (ss) talked to his mom, but didnt tell
us till much later that she said she hadnt received the fax.
(Dh) got up 10am Saturday, 11/4/2000, to take (ss) to Robotics, and his
mom had already picked up (ss) at our home 8:30am.We learned later that all but
(ss) were asleep, (bm) knocked on the door at 8:30am waking the girls,
and (ss) was ready to go.
We mailed (bm) Saturday, 11/4/2000, You had
agreed over the phone Thursday with (ss) to pick him up after Saturday
Robotics class which is 11am-1pm in M*** B***. (Ss) told you I would fax the directions.
(Concerned Stepmom) faxed the
directions that night for Robotics to your Kinkos.
Last night (ss) talked to you, but didn't tell us till much later that
you hadn't received the fax.
I got up 10am to take (ss) to Robotics, and you had already picked up (ss)
at our home 8:30am.
12:15pm the Robotics teacher emailed,
Hi (Concerned Stepmom), R**** students should attend the Saturday
meetings/classes. This is a
part of the program. We will meet the 11th at C***
and the 18th at the R***** auto shop. I'm looking forward to meeting
your students and teacher/mentor.
Today we had 4 students show up from R****....They look like a fine group!
Students will need to purchase the textbook
"The Robot Builders Bonanza" by Gordon McComb.
(Concerned Stepmom) emailed him the information Ive written
in this letter.
Veterans Day weekend is Friday, 11/10/2000
Let me know by Wednesday when youll be picking
up (ss) and that you will make sure he gets to Robotics.
When (dh) picked up (ss) we learned (bm) had informed (ss) that she
talked to the Robotics teacher, that (bm) told (ss) the classes are not
mandatory, and she would be at our home to pick him up 8:30am Saturday
morning. (Bm) said she wants him to spend more time with her. He
didn't think to tell us. (Ss) said they didn't do anything all weekend.
We mailed her the attached 11/06/2000
11/8/2000 Wednesday she angrily told (ss) over the phone she won't be
taking him to Robotics. (Ss) asked her if his dad could pick him
up and take him. She said no. ( (dh) wouldn't be willing to do that.)
11/09 I heard again from C*** Robotics teacher, J*****,
"...**The meeting will be on Saturday: November 11, 2000
**Chapter 16 (Robot Locomotion Principles) is due on Saturday -
because it relates to what Phillip was going over last week - if you
don't have the new edition, GET IT!
**YES, there will be a quiz this Saturday on the reading - last week
we didn't have one b/c the physics was too overwhelming and mostly
because I didn't write it b/c I got up too late and had to get to SAT
(Sorry - I know I am so irresponsible)
NOTE: If you won't be at the meeting, e-mail me w/a valid excuse
BEFORE the meeting."
She didn't change her mind. (ss) has now missed 2 Robotics'
