I am going to enjoy life after 50 if it kills me!

Kids Are Funny

My weeks are getting hectic as the school year progresses, but I wanted to spend a little time sharing what my 5th grade cherubs have said and written lately.

 

In the final paragraph of this girl’s story:  “To make a short story quick, I …”

 

With all earnestness, as he explained some process to me, this wide-eyed little boy gushed, “I have a passion for science.”

 

And finally, this passage from a boy who learned English as a second language, and who is a sweetheart, ” I sat on the couch and heard a knock on the door.  BOOB! BOOB!”

That’s boom, my child.  I love my job!
