On another note, I see how limited my future became: so much for becoming an astronaut, fighter pilot, and all-around American Hero (I am sure it wasn’t because of my short-sightedness, or my startling lack of appreciation for mathematics, I am sure it was because of those teachers!). Well, I guess I will just take it out on the students!
I got home at about 1:00pm. Conferences at the elementary. I changed the water in the fish tanks and washed the dog bedding. Cora usually does the dog beds…and I think she is going to continue doing them…I can’t believe how hard it was getting the hair to come off. I could not even put the cover back on Toby’s bed, I had to have Cora do it when she came in.
The kids were fun. Since it was a half-day, the teacher seems to have forgotten that certain reading teachers would not be coming in. So, Jim had to shoot from the hip. I had to come up with an educational fakery of sorts. The kids know I can draw. We went through as many letters of the alphabet as I could stomach, then I told them to take a sheet of paper and I would show them how to draw something. So they learned how to spell elephant, duck, and number. They also learned that you can draw with numbers. I showed them how to use number shapes to draw a duck. Yeah, I am a one trick horse. If all else fails, draw them a picture.
Well, if I go to the Dr. tomorrow, I also have to squeeze in some other getting ready details. I CANNOT WAIT to go to Phoenix!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
