(if i ever have kids, i hope they turn out like these two. frankly, i was probably too much of an asshole as a kid myself to get that lucky.)
school starts up again tomorrow.
i'm excited. we're wrapping up the first semester and heading into my favorite part of the year: harper lee's to kill a mockingbird and shakespeare's romeo and juliet.
i love, love, l o v e teaching those two pieces. and even if the kids hate them, my enthusiasm seems to carry them through.
i'm blessed, i think, to be able to find joy in even the smallest things. don't get me wrong, i can get my whinge on with the best of them, but when my head is not too far up my ass, i can usually see pretty clearly . . .
