Another Tuesday........

I was trolling around the Internet and I found THIS about Starbuck's over at Poppy's. I thought it was hilarious! My son, who is now a high school graduate, will be returning to gainful employment at Starbuck's next week.

Today was my last official day of school, a work day. It wasn't especially hard, but it was long. Lots and lots and lots of paperwork! Ugh! If there's one thing special education excels at, it's paperwork. I LOVE writing reports, organizing progress data, and filling out progress reports. Really I do. I didn't get my room completely packed up, so I will have to go back tomorrow. Fun, fun!

It's a pretty peaceful evening here. Joseph went out with some friends, Rachael is at play practice, and Daniel is spending the night at a friend's house. It's just me and Aaron. He is watching the first Star Wars movie.....well, what I call the first Star Wars movie. I guess technically it's the fourth one.

Anyway, I have to make a plan for the summer. Aaron, Daniel and I want to go to the gym together, to keep up Aaron's 3 times a week with his trainer. Aaron starts swimming lessons next week. Joseph is starting back to work, and hopefully Rachael will be, too, soon. And I must keep Daniel and Aaron away from endless hours in front of the video games and the TV. And I have to figure out when they will be visiting their dad, so maybe I can have some time on the road with Steven.

That's all for now. Hope you are having a great week.

Haha, I've seen the Starbucks thing before! I'm thinking of working there too.

And.. What is summer for BUT endless hours in front of video games and TV?!

Knowing you, an active summer is in your future.

T-dog - I gave myself detention! I didn't get my work done in a timely manner. But I got it all done today.

By the way, I'm following you, too, now. Hee, hee.

Shen-Shen - I realize from their (and your) perspectives that summer is for endless hours of video games and TV. But what kind of a teacher would I be if I didn't encourage them to read? And exercise?

Brother Dave - We are rarely bored.

C-flake - I would sooo love to tell them that. And believe me, they would do it, too.


Shen-Shen said...

True, true.. I think after a while video games and TV do become boring though, haha.

And good books = staying up all night reading. So all you need are good books!

Can't comment on exercise though, I'm not a fan!

My week is going well, I've had the entire week off as some random extension of memorial day weekend, so tomorrow will be my first day of school in 6 days :(

How are you? :)

Reading. Thats how I spent my summers. It was the best thing my mom could have done for me. I'll always remember the summer when I read the Wizard of Oz series.

It appears you have the basic blueprint in place for a fun summer. Enjoy.
