6 more days to go but who's counting - actually everyone is counting and anyone who says they aren't is lying.
The kids are wild, especially the 5th grade who are feeling their oats. Tomorrow the 5th grade goes on the long anticipated trip to Austin. For many, other than trips to Mexico it's their first trip outside of the city. Most of our kids live in a world bounded by school, their apartment complex, Wal-Mart and the homes of their relatives.
587 = the number of times a 5th grade teacher has snapped "If your behavior doesn't stop you won't be going to Austin".
Come Monday that's a hollow threat. I'm at a total loss what they will use to instill order and discipline for the last week. It's gonna be a long one.......
As for me, I just got my new Bas Bleu catalog and I'm happily making a summer reading list.
