Alison is tired of having this fight. She works for the school system and has only the summer off. She has been clear with Mom about the time available. It’s clear to us that once again, nothing is going to happen or change (nothing ever does), so why should we spend all our time and money there? One week, not two. We’ll do what we can according to her wishes. And if she is insistent on going home and is technically competent, then maybe we should let her and let things unfold according to her decisions.
