By the end of the summer (and sometimes be the end of a day!) I am ready to get the kids back to school. But I would have liked another week with them on this vacation.
Ah, the school Holiday Shop. Helping kids choose the best gift $5 can get 'ya.

Teacher question (and/or non-teachers with good ideas)--
What is your favorite gift to receive from a student? How about from a group of students (so presumably more $$)?
(Don't say a handwritten note-- this is your chance to get some goods! ;) )
Meanwhile, my first grader thought his sight words were too easy, so he flipped the flash cards upside-down to "make it a little harder".
Haha, I can't make this $hit up!
I always did extra credit.
I graduated high school in the top 20% of my class.
I was disappointed if my A didn't have a + in front of it.
I took Physics as a college elective.
I graduated college with honors.
I can't do my third grader's math homework.
My new favorite person is the Classroom Captain who explicitly instructed parents not to 'reply all' to emails.
There's something really ironic about being stuck behind a school bus, while trying to make it home in time to get my kids from the school bus.
Today's Stupid Waste of Time award goes to spelling homework.
(I know, I know, all kids learn differently.)
I appreciate the emergency plan, but HOW MANY TIMES CAN I FILL OUT THE SAME INFO?
Seriously, you need to provide this info just to register the child, then each year you are asked to fill it out within the first week of school, then for the nurse, then verify it is correct on the online page, then for the directory, then just for FUN! And this is from a paperless/green initiative school.
Why is there not one master form per family?
