Wild in the Halls

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.

They can just send them to the library if they're bad! Ha!

They do! I had a 2nd grader all day today. I would of had some 5th graders but so many got bumped off the bus that they are hiring a sub to corral them. Poor sub, I bet they eat him/her alive. Only a fool accepts a sub. call the last week of school.

I knew there was a reason I should surf on blog explosion tonight--so I could come across your blog!

And I love bas bleu, too. Every other page is dog-eared.

Never heard of bas bleu before, but I checked out their website. How cool.
