Not long ago, March, I think, I celebrated 1000 posts. Now my trusty computer shows me that I have completed 1199 before this post, which makes this my 1200th post! Now, I am aware that not all my previous posts are pure gold, obviously some slipped to silver, tarnished silver at that! This one has to be gold, though! If it isn't, well, then I think it's probably platinum! Simply because of the picture! Look at that family! Isn't it beautiful! The setting sun illuminated the clouds just right, as we were returning from Chloe's birthday dinner, and we took a picture with the Canon (it's much easier to hold a point and shoot in one hand than it is to hold Precious!).
This is my fourth day subbing as a long term science teacher, and I am getting into the role. It's kind of fun. I hope the kids are learning something...I KNOW some are not, simply because they refuse to, and I'm not allowed to light a fire under their asses (smoke alarms and something in the Geneva Convention, I think)...no cattle prods, either. Still, you do what you can do.
