1. After helping cute little 3rd grader find the book he was looking for (on fashion, no less, of which we only had a few and the only promising one was more on costume design than fashion), he came back up to me and said, "Miss? I really do not wish to make you a crazy person, but this book? It is not quite my favorite." Oh dear L, you do not make me a crazy person. I hope to find a wonderful book on fashion design for you soon.
2. Finding sci-fi books for 10th grade sci-fi fan. Oh how I can think of so many new books we don’t have that I know he’d love. It makes me want to spend my own money to buy new books for the school. Which I can’t do right now.
3. Snack time. I love snack time. We have good snacks at our school. For free. Things like homemade cheesebread. Ham and cheese croissants. Yummy natural sandwiches with whole wheat bread and lettuce and tomatoes and fancy cheeses. The kids have two snacks and lunch a day. I just take the first snack and lunch. Yum. I am spoiled.
4. My 12th grade and 9th grade creative writing classes. This year is going to change their lives. And mine.

LOL – oh, you gotta love that kid’s nice manners. I hope you find him a book that it is a bit more of a favorite. You’re up to the challenge, right? 🙂
I am hot on the trail as we speak.
I really think his nice manners come partially from the fact that he’s a great kid and partially from the fact that English is his second language. He’s so cute.
I want to go to your school.
For the snacks? 🙂
Oh, Kristy, I love all of this right down to the ham and cheese croissant.
I would share with you if you were close enough.
Kristy, this post is like a sigh of contentment. It makes me happy for you!
I am content! And busy. SO busy!
Please keep posting about the food.
Today was hot cheesebread and fresh fruit salad.
#1–hilarious! I hope he finds a favorite soon, so he doesn’t become a crazy person, either.
I’ll keep you posted!
