There have been so many things I've wished to write about over the past couple of weeks but have been swamped with work tasks so the blog posts have been put on the back burner. Tonight is no exception. Between report cards, some 2nd grade team data analysis, translating the notes from Monday's crazy meeting, preparing an agenda for next week's training, and writing two days worth of sub plans so I can be out for next week's said training, it's going to be another long night.
BUT I'm taking a quick dinner break and can share this short, amusing story (although maybe also a small glimpse into the lack of experiences my funny little class has).
Last Tuesday, my fourth and fifth new student of the year enrolled in school...twin girls. They are darling, but very very quiet. That's not necessarily a bad thing since the rest of the class doesn't stop talking, EVER. However when these girls talk nothing actually comes out of their mouth. They have been home-schooled up until now and are extremely shy. I'm sure, as one of my other students said, "Ms. Delight, I think we are scaring them!" And I think I agree.
Anyways, I digress. Upon lining up after the morning bell, the rest of the class was in such a flutter. "We have twins!" They shouted as I picked them up on the playground. My group this year is always in everyone else's business so they were in all their glory last week helping and smothering these little girls, even better, there were two! The week passed without any great incidents, no more than usual anyhow.
As I walked my kids from the yard to class this Monday morning, one of my girls looked at me in all seriousness and said, "Well Ms. Delight, the girls are back and...they STILL look the same!" With a chuckle under my breath I nodded, "They sure do."
Alright, dinner is over; back to work!
