Back to school
The vacation officially ended at 8 o’clock yesterday morning when Robin rang the bell. Did you know he’s the official bell-ringer for school? Every hour he stands outside his classroom and signals the beginning and end of the passing periods. The school should create a special bell ringer stipend just for him.
Our trip to Uganda was wonderful and having my parents around is great. I’ll get pictures up when I remember to get them off of my camera.
Today I told my sixth graders to work like “little ants.” They decided that meant I had to be the queen ant. Then, some genious noted, “But the queen ant is fat and just sits still and lays eggs.” …Silence… “Well, Mrs. Crocker just lays math problems.” I can’t say that I feel especially flattered.
