It appears that my readership/subscribership just keeps growing and growing. What with my Bishop, boss, moms from my school, neighbors and especially my own mom now regularly reading these words, I must be very, very careful in what I say.
Speaking of "Welcome", a teammate of mine today pointed out to me that my bulletin board actually said "Welcolm to First Grade". Ugh! About ten moms had already come into my room for their Parent Teacher Conferences. I hurried down to the supply room and made an E to add to Welcome. However, as I type this, I realize that my bulletin board now says, "Welcolme to First Grade." Oh geez - And now every mom has seen it. What a first impression to make - My daughters teacher doesn't know how to spell "Welcome." That is why, when possible, I always have a mom helper do my bulletin boards. (By the way, it also just took me about 5 attempts to correctly spell the word "bulletin".
I have noticed that the hip thing to do today is post a picture of your kid on your blog on their first day of school. Not to be outdone by other Mom blogs, or Daddy blogs, here is a picture of my boys, only one of which is headed to school:
Lincoln must have had a great day because he was still awake at 9:30. (He went to bed at 8:30.) I went in and asked him why and he had a big smile on his face. He said, "I am just too excited to go back to school tomorrow!" He has a really nice teacher and I had a few classes with her at Westminster so I know she is well trained.
I just completed a 6 mile run in the wind and smoke. God should put a warning label on the mountains. "Warning: Inhaling smoke from the mountain may cause wheezing and death to joggers." I am not sure where the fire was, I heard somewhere up in Draper, but if felt like I was running through the ashes of a campfire. After I peeled the final layer of ash off my body, I actually felt a little like this lady.
***My thanks to The Soup for this clip. However, no thanks to that beeotch, Tyra Banks who still has not returned my emails or calls. I thought that with her questionable morals and desperate producers, I would at least receive a hint of interest.
