My "Poor Me" Story

Yes. More snow. What you can't see in the last picture (I took these pictures from inside the house - I'm refusing to go outside & acknowledge this stuff!), is that it is still snowing. It's been snowing all day. Schools were cancelled today. The QP has been home all day. Here's where the Poor Me part comes in - today is my birthday. And it's snowing. And school was cancelled. And I'm home...all day. Yippee.

In case you don't remember from last year, March is a busy birthday month here in Blogland:

Maribel ~ March 9th

Iraida ~ March 10th

the QP ~ March 12th :-)

Margene ~ March 14th

Yay for the March Pisces babies! :-)

MAKE it a great day!

Fun with second graders.

Yesterday I helped out in the QP's class. I do this every Wednesday. I help during their "Writing Center". It's very entertaining and interesting. If you've never read stories written by second graders, you should!

This week, they're learning when to use: 's and s'. The teacher was going over the "rules" for using those two things. She gave some sentences as examples, and then asked the class to give some examples.

The QP raises her hand, and gives the teacher this sentence: "Angelia's Socks That Rock yarn is awesome." I started laughing. The teacher was a little confused. The class was also confused. So we had to explain what Socks That Rock yarn is. The QP also had to say that I got mine from my Secret Pal - which only added to the confusion!

That's my girl! 7 years old, and knows that Socks That Rock yarn is awesome!

MAKE it a great day!
