And the count down begins

I hate tests
I hate that it turns my students into mindless machines printing out words to impress a scorer
Nevertheless testing season has begun in the sunshine state.
FL writes is less than a month away and to kick off the anticipation of this blessed day I made a paper chain. Yes, each paper ring has a date on it signifying one less day they can suck any knowledge out of me and cram it in their heads.
So to those other teachers out there...hang in there!

Oh Christmas cards

I do believe my family has been cursed with some kind of Christmas card plague. Let me explain...we have taken pictures for the last fourish/threeish years and not one picture has made it into a card. I have joked that one year we are going to combine all of the pictures and create a flip book of sorts covering the last years of failed Christmas cards.
The point of me telling you this is because I have been camera less since Christmas in effort for my family to perhaps make this Christmas card season a success...well Christmas has passed and once again no card with our smiling faces was sent out. Sorry family and friends
 This is as far as the Christmas card made it
