Retraction

First and foremost... I was so thrilled to drive Big Guy to school this morning because he carried in his lap one of the many projects which he has been working on for the past few weeks. It was a model of The Pentagon. He also had a zip drive in his backpack with a Power Point presentation about The Pentagon. After reading his Power Point, I know more about The Pentagon than I ever thought possible. Who knew there was so much geometry involved in that building?

Big Guy informed me that several kids turned their projects in earlier this week and some kids touched them and messed them up. The teacher had a "no touch" rule for the projects and she told them she was serious. They didn't believe her, but when they touched she promptly told them that they had a "0" for their own projects. Personally, I am glad to see a teacher punish these 6th graders for acting like 2 year olds!

Now for the retraction part of this post...

Yesterday when hubs came home he promptly informed me that he was "offended" (not really) that I would say he makes me late. He insisted I print a retraction. So here it is, sweet hubs! I will make a full apology later. *giggle*

And...

If you didn't read Doghouse's blog yesterday, I hope you will be praying for Lil' Bit. They are taking her to the doctor and he has asked us to be praying.

Glad that teacher has enforced the no touch rule after all the work the kids did for her assignment. That is good to hear.

Happy to know there are still teachers out there who would do something like that!

And poor hubs. I'm playing the violin for him right now...

tell your sweet hubs that retracting that statement doesn't make it NOT true. LOL
