Back to the Grind

So here we are in Stitchin Schoolmarm land with no stitching pics to show. I have been stitching, just don't have any proof of it to show you. We are both back to school and work right now. Jonathon is holding his own in sixth grade, while he is still at the elementary school for sixth grade it has been sort of a cultural shock. Gone are the teachers who mommy you along and you meet the teachers who expect you to be responsible and take care of stuff on your own. We have had a few bumps along the way here and there, but for the most part he does okay.

I seem to have some really nice kids this year. I suppose I too will have some bumps along the way, but seriously I am quite impressed with my students so far. This year brings some interesting changes for me though, I found out today that I will be team teaching with one of our special ed teachers the first hour of the day. I am sure this will have some growing pains along the way, but probably some learning opportunities. You can generally learn some tricks by watching another teacher here and there. The only downside of this is that with paras in the room, and attendant care workers there will four adults to 15 kids. I am not sure how that will all pan out in the long run.

The picture above although a bit dark is of Jonathon, his buddy Eric and former NFL Viking Cris Carter. To tell you the truth I was way more excited about Jonathon getting a chance to have his pic taken with Mr. Carter than he was, but what can I say I love football. Anyway, he has been in our fine little town the last two weekends to watch his son play for the local community college team. The son originally played for Ohio State as a freshman, but due to grades and rumor has it off the field problems he landed here. Anyway, you know me and my propensity for ...ummm I guess lack of a better term to hunt people down, it took me all four quarters to find him. He was very polite when asked for a picture with the kids. Thank goodness for I phones.

Until next time, have a wonderful week.
