Charlie: Mom, I'm going to make you a surprise.
Me: Great! I can't wait!
2 minutes later. . .
Charlie: Can you open the bread for me?
2 minutes after that. . .
Charlie: Can you open the turkey?
2 minutes after that . . .
Charlie: Can you open the cheese?
The suspense is killing me.

Charlie thought we should keep the furniture this way permanently. It is more fun this way, and more conducive to making spaceships and forts.
But he even liked the empty living room. We found him fast asleep in the middle of the floor.

I bought a cookbook recently that shows how to make just about anything from scratch. I have been trying it out. Why? Just to see if I can do it.
So far I have made mayonnaise, wheat bread and pasta. Today I tried marshmallows. This is what they look like right out if the mixing bowl. I have to wait 12 hours and then cut them into squares.
Now I just need to call up my friend with the fire pit, and make some s'mores.

I get so emotional this time of year.
I was interviewing the kids about their school year and writing down the answers for an end of the year project. I asked one student what the coolest thing he learned was. When he said: "learning to read" I lost it. Tears.
I'm such a baby, but it's good to know I'm probably in the right profession.
I teach in a predominately Hispanic school.
One of my moms sent in "Oh The Places You'll Go" for me to sign for her son. When another student saw me put the book in his take-home folder, he asked:
"Why does he get a Dr. Jesus book?"
