For some reason I got it in my head that the parents were a little upset when they asked on Wednesday if we could meet the very next day. Oh crap!
Turns out they just wanted their make up conference. They were very supportive. The subject of my strictness came up and they thanked me for that! The dad said I was leaving a legacy! A legacy? Wow. I was befuddled and speechless.
I certainly do not hear comments like that from parents very often.
