this week while my chickadees are at science camp i am subbing in a 2nd grade classroom at the same school.
oh the drama and glory of the 2nd grader!
everything is magnified. intensified. injustice lies around every corner! someone talked about someone who stepped on someone's something.
the classroom has no windows and no ventilation save for one rickety fan. miss moss is dreadfully hot.
in other news…
during this week's facetime art session with sister i finished 2 robin pages.
at recess i bought a box of thin mints. i sat in front of the fan. for a few cool minty moments i forgot about the inner lives of 7 year olds.
i read a story about an alligator who works in a department store after lunch. everyone sat at attention and didn't make a peep. at the end everyone clapped. i have books lined up for the whole week.
after school one of my students who didn't go to science camp (and is in another class for the week) brought me a note.
i read it on the way to my car. when i got home i put some bottles of water in the freezer for tomorrow. i put my note on the fridge.
i hope you have someone in your life who specializes in flattery and exaggeration. no?
here i'll write a note for you myself:
thanks for coming by for a visit you clever witty awesome person. you are good at everything. everyone likes you. and you're cute. happy monday!
love love love.
