11/21/14 new phones, day 325/365…

We got the girls cell phones activated today. They had been off. William likes his Tracfone  and it was already on. Maggie’s phone was OK and just needed to be turned on. Beth had left hers in the classroom last week, she carries it to use as a watch. When she left the room for a minute it got broken. She is not blaming anyone, but is hurt that it is broken. She had paid for it last year and it was a nice middle of the road phone. I activated the phones. They could not get Beth’s phone to work at the store. Beth’s phone is her link to the world, she is a very social person. Our choices were to get the phone that I could afford, that doesn’t get or send pictures and can’t get apps and can’t retrieve her contacts, or not get a phone. The others were too expensive. Beth was crushed. Maggie had a nice phone and didn’t even want one, but she, Beth, had a model that didn’t do the things that she needs. I was so torn. She does need a phone, and I could have stretched and bought her a nicer one…but she thinks that it is OK to leave the phone in the classroom. I really didn’t want to teach her a lesson, but we got the cheaper phone. She was really upset for an hour then decided that she could live with it. She said that she can start saving for another phone.

Here is a train.
