Today after class I had an advisement appointment. It went well, I planned out my schedule for fall, and got a definite when I should take the PRAXIS I. It was all good and I walked away with a plan - which I need. After that I went to Zach's school to help with the book fair. I love the book fair - I spend way too much money - but I like helping at the school. Being around the kids really gives me a feel for what it will probably be like when I'm a teacher. Today was crazy completely insane.
First there was an "Intruder Alert Drill". I've never even heard of these - anyone else? Hmm so it goes like this - "There's an intruder" so the kids scrunch down into the corners (or behind book shelves) in case someone comes in with a gun and starts shooting. OMG really? Really? I can't even think about that right now. I have way too much to say. Immediately after (I mean so close after we still were hiding) there's a fire drill. OK I can get behind a fire drill. I understand a fire drill. These kids were so bad - running and screaming and oh Lord - I couldn't believe it. The whole thing made me think back to my appointment less than an hour before and wonder why when asked "Are you still majoring in Elementary Education?", I said "Yes". I feel better now.
Now for the few pictures from this week.
Last month my baby turned 10. We gave him a BB gun. I'm going to be honest - I wasn't sold on the idea. Zach is not a outdoorsy kid. I think he would be if he had kids to play with, but he doesn't. Again, that's another time. Turns out the kid is a natural. He's a really good shot. So I had to take some pictures of his gunmanship!
Until next time ~ Kris
