Mysterious school holiday today. The Home got back from out-of-town a little later than originally planned, and decided (whether because of that or because of worry about Josh being bored) it would be better if we kept Josh for today; we will be bringing him over there anytime after 6pm.

(09:48) So far he's been calm and only slightly bored, but the morning is young.

18:59

Josh did not want his bookbag coming with him to the home. He insisted on putting it back in the house before we left. I brought it out hidden under my jacket and put it in the back of the minivan where he couldn't see it, but apparently that was still too obvious: in the car on the way over, Josh took off his seatbelt, went into the back, dug around, and got out his bookbag (all while we were driving on I-85).

Sensing what was about to happen, I pulled off -- and sure enough, he opened the door and tossed the bookbag out.

After a quick phone consultation with Sandy, we decided to leave it there and I would come back for it. (Fortunately, it was still there.) Hope this doesn't mean he will refuse to put it on tomorrow morning (or refuse to go to school) -- but if I had to bet on it, I'd bet that it was a context-thing and he will be fine tomorrow.

(Having said that, of course, I have now jinxed it... whatever; I will be up tomorrow at 5:30 regardless, just in case.)
