A Compliment...I think

Last week one of my grade 7 students told me that I was a mean teacher, but that it was a good thing because I'm mean the way teachers are supposed to be mean. HMMMM...I wonder what that means.

just when you have had enough...

...they go and do something really sweet (3 year olds that is). It was just one of those days with Elijah...I don't know if it was the houseboundness of a snowday or what but bedtime couldn't come fast enough tonight. So of course he's up again an hour past when he was originally put to bed (as I said, just one of those days) and I tuck him in again and prepare to leave, he asks if he can pray for me. So he prays his usual prayer, "Dear Jesus, thank you for blessing my mommy, Amen, Bye-bye" he looks at me and asks, "Mommy, are you still sick?" (I've been battling off ear/throat infections for a month now) I told him I was mostly better, but still had a sore throat (2 rounds of anti-biotics and I'm heading back to the doctor), so Elijah puts his hands on my head and starts to pray again this time: "Dear Lord Jesus, please make my mommy all better so she's not sick any more, Amen, Bye-bye"...then he gives me a kiss and rolls over to go to sleep.

Blog, oh you still love me?

Not that I've had anything else to do during the past 2 months besides teaching at 2 schools (21 classes), being a mom to 2 little lads, being a wife (to 1 man), co-running a household, volunteering with church stuff, directing choir, planning assemblies and musical gathering school stuff, battling off illnesses (more on that later) know just life stuff...
