A Novel Idea

Today is the last day of first grade. I remember those last days of school throughout the years. They were exciting, but also a little sad. We lived five miles from town and I knew I wouldn't be seeing my friends for three months. My parents used to wonder why I was always on the phone!

OC had a good year. I'm so glad we switched classrooms, even with all the trouble that came with it. I am happy with her teacher for next year, no surprise. The school didn't want to upset the troublemaker. Sometimes a reputation is a good thing, I suppose.

Here's looking forward to an entire school year at the same school and with the same teacher.

I've been sitting here thinking what OC and I will do this afternoon and I think we'll go to the bookstore. We haven't been there in months, and OC's babysitter has a birthday coming up. She (babysitter) likes to write, so I've been thinking of getting her a book of essays and some kind of reference book, such as a style manual. I like the Elements of Style by Will Strunk.

Party on, dudes.

I'm so glad that the switch went well for you.

I took my boys to the book store the other day and I really enjoyed it. It was nice to just kick back and enjoy the time together.

Mine were happy too, but exhausted. We went to lunch (Geno's!) but then they just wanted to go home and zzzz...

Boo has "the new teacher" so who knows who it will be. But she is happy because there are a couple of good friends in the same class, including one who was not in her class this year. Keep your fingers crossed for us! I am glad you got "the right" teacher for OC...
