Teacher Stories

Here's one for you....This happened toward the end of the school year. I need to start writing them down when I remember them b/c kids really do say the darnedest things....

Girl: I don't believe in God.
Boy: That's why God made you live in a trailer.
Teacher: (inside her head and not out loud) Bbbaaaaahahahahah!

Here's another one from earlier in the year.
Girl: Mrs Whigham....is it true that all of the 49ers were midgets?
Teacher: What are you talking about? (crap. apparently I missed the mark when I was teaching this lesson)

One more thing

Albertson's is having a huge sale on meat.....Buy ONE package of meat (steaks, etc)...get TWO FREE! Yes, that is correct....Buy 1 get 2 free. Therefore, we had steaks for dinner. I got 3 packs of sirloin for $19. That works!

Oh poor blog....you are so mistreated.

It has officially been over a year since my last post.

Since that time I have completed my first year of teaching 5th grade and ABSOLUTELY loved it! I have many funny stories about this year of teaching....I will have to share.

We purchased our first home and it's amazing.

We adopted a puppy. Her name is Lexi and she is mostly German Shepherd. She's kind of a turd. We have been taking her on tons of walks so that she stays tired because when she's wide awake she chews everything and barks at the cats. We now have a happy little family of us and 2 cats/1 dog.

Since it is the summer I have been watching lots of HGTV and Food Network. This has of course sparked many projects and new food ideas. Ross is happy about the new foods he gets to try. The other day I made Peanut Butter and Jelly Bars by Barefoot Contessa and he had a cow. They were amazing. My current HGTV projects are many.....laying tile in the master bathroom, building a stone wall around the fireplace, making a scrapbook titled, "We Love You Because..." for my dad, and decorating the living room.

During the summer I get to read and last night I finished, "Cocktails for Three" by
Madeleine Wickham. I'm not going to lie....I kinda picked it out for the cover, but also because her last name is so close to mine! Luckily it turned out pretty good. I finished it in 3 sittings which is impressive for me. Next up is The Lost Art of Keeping Secrets by Eva Rice.
