Miracles Do Happen

It's true, miracles really do happen, we had one happen today at school! One of the 7th graders had so much pain in his right leg, we thought we might have to get it amputated. On the way down to the nurse in the elevator he was cured. Walked right out on that leg. Then the unthinkable happened......his affliction from his right leg jumped and he began limping on his left leg. I KNOW....don't ya just hate when that happens!

Yep it sounds ridiculous, but it did happen and then the kid had the nerve to try to convince me that it was I, Mrs G, who was mistaken, it was always his left leg......OK Skippy........ This is actually not the craziest thing I had seen or heard, it's just the most recent.

The kids are just off the wall. I think it has to do with the hurricane heading up the coast. That or something is in the water.

We are putting all the crap I have planned  on putting away for the past couple of weekends tomorrow. It is going to be a bit windy on Monday so Laureen is coming buy to give me a hand. I have been having some pain in my shoulder over the past few weeks. So what I could once muscle alone I now need help with.

I have Jack coming to stay over tomorrow night. I am getting a cold, but feel fine. I will leave it to Katie but as of right now I see no reason for Jack to have to live threw all the depravity that will be going on during the annual Halloween Party. He and I can spend the night watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse or Jake the Neverland Pirate, eating popcorn and cheese sticks. Looking forward to it.

Pirate Jack

Pirate Jack came treasure hunting Friday night. We searched Aunt Rachel's room, Grandma's room, and Daddy's Room finally finding treasure in Freddie's bed in Grandma's room! Two shiny nickles that must have fallen out of my Eeyore bank.Babysitting is so much fun with a very active 3 year old boy.

Work has been a challenge for me these past couple of weeks. I have been "moved" to the 7th grade floor. I am still Project Support but now I follow three 7th graders. I have never handled change well, but this is really hard on me. Not that the 7th grade staff aren't welcoming, they are. However the floor doesn't have that family feel that happens on the 8th grade floor. Where else can you hear the science teacher screech out happy birthday to a student who brings him cake.... or hear Marcella yelling TATA....when he has called her class phone and prank called her......or Dern rolling down the hall in his "wheelie" chair to ask Mikey how to use ed-line.

Are they all certifiable, you better believe it. They are also the most talented and dedicated teaching staff in the district and I miss them terribly.
