~It's time! It's time!! Friday Fragments and Friday's Freewrite. Grab ahold of those pesky little thoughts swirling around and around in your mind and unload them here. It's the best stop of the week.
~I enjoyed last week's luncheon with the Jills. One of the Jills did some teaching in my garden. It seems that those lucious berry plants I was growing so successfully were weeds.
~School supply shopping yesterday. $160 for notebooks, binders, crayons, and page protectors. Still need at least one graphing calculator and one backpack. The hallelujah news is that the trombone has been paid for already.
~Pepper the dog is, thus far, excelling in her schooling. She has impressed us with how quickly she is learning. Of course, most of the things that have been taught in the first two classes were things we had already taught Pepper at home. We will NOT be telling the instructor that.
~Facebook is beginning to make me feel very boring. Did I not do anything fun during high school or college?
~Have you ever had an initial and brief phone conversation with someone and decided they were very odd only to have your in real life meeting confirm that? How frustrating when that person is my child's doctor or teacher.
~Our NYC-loving daughter has returned home just in time to get registered for high school. The papers about academic integrity, bus service, scheduling, guidance office procedures, and dress code were all tossed aside in favor of the paper about the homecoming dance tickets. The very first school supply we bought way back at the beginning of the summer? Her dress.
