Yesterday was a wonderful day of scrapbooking in Ft Collins with the Pea group. I love these ladies! Amanda P was a wonderful hostess. I came home with 3 prizes, maybe some of Rachel’s luck in rubbing off on me. Plus, thanks to a miracle of pre-planning I came home with 5 finished layouts. I think that might be a record for me for such a short crop.
Here’s the first of the layouts to share…
Since it was such a long day, Tanner went to Camp Bow Wow for the day and night — gosh it was strange not to come home to his happy face.
Today was a work day, we had a teacher quit just a we were wrapping up CSAP and a week before grades were due. That left me to pull her grades out of the curriculum and into our grading software for 180 kiddos. Not particularly my idea of fun, but someone had to do it. Also noticed she was behind on her grading of student writing. When it comes to our educational system nothing depresses me more than reading writing samples of high schoolers who can barely write. I wonder what the world will be like when it is run by people who believe an essay needs only to consist of two sentences, void of capitals and punctuation. I’m not the only one who wonders, ironically I clicked on this link on Arleigh’s page and found the post End of Eloquence.
For the waning moments of the weekend I’m content to watch Iron Chef…battle garlic. Yumm-O. Here’s your parting thought…”Garlic is the ketchup of intellectuals”
