Another School Stroy...Except Not So Cute

Well I just had to share this story that happened today because it made me SO MAD. This story may be some boring to some so you might just want to pass it by. But it just is an example of how rude some people can be. So I had just moved my room around and needed and new phone port activated for where my desk currently is. I put in a work order a week ago and the technology guy finally comes in today! The guy come in while I am in the middle of teaching at the carpet and starts moving stuff around right by the kids. I told him where the port was so he would stop distracting my kids. Then he starts doing some measuring and says to me, "This is more than 10 feet from your desk, I can't do it." Now I knew it was a fire hazard if you have a cord more than 10 feet. But it was literally 10 feet and 10 inches away from the port! 10 freaking inches! So I just said ok I would move it tonight and he said he would be back in the morning.
Well today I had sent in another work order because my computer would not let me log in at all. So I asked him if he could just take a quick look at my computer to see if he could get me logged in. He looks at me and says, "I'll look at your computer when your desk is moved where it needs to be." UGH! That just made me mad! I was going to be nice about it and really move my desk to be legal, but now to show him what a jerk he is and I don't really care what he says, this is what I did.....



Do you think this is obvious enough to him that I will be moving my desk and file cabinets right back to the spot they were the second he leaves my room???? I must be very hormonal because this just made me way more upset than what I ever would have been!

Teaching Moment

So I have to admit that this year of teaching has not been the best. Sometimes I feel that I am having a difficult time getting into the groove of teaching 1st grade. I think it is just because I miss kindergarten sssoooooo much. However, there are little moments throughout the day that make me so happy to be a teacher. I am going to tell you a story about one of these moments. I was bringing my kids down to get their lunch. A cute little kindergarten girl walks by my boys and tells one of them, "Get a chocolate milk for lunch." This boy says, "Ok, I will." I smiled at the boy and asked, "William, do you do everything girls tell you to do?" And he just says to me, "Yeah, that is what you are supposed to do." Then other boys in the front of the line chime in with comments like, "I always listen to what my girlfriend tells me to do," and, "I will always do what girls tell me to do." I just started laughing so hard. I couldn't believe all these little boys. I just told them to keep that in mind for when they get older! Being around kids is so much fun. Some of the things that come out of their mouths are amazing and it is fun to be a part of that every day.

Wintertime Fun

I just wanted to share some fun winter pictures. For part of Christmas break we went over to Leavenworth and had lots of fun. There were a couple days where we got to go sledding behind a four wheeler. Then a couple days ago Brett, Kyra, and I went ice skating for a church activity. Just a couple of fun pictures!
