Every once in a while a student will say something that just tickles me. Such was the case on Tuesday.
I work with a group of second graders for about 30 minutes each day and have to rush from them back to a fifth grade group. When it was time for the boys to leave I was rushing them out explaining that I had to get back to the main building to teach a group of fifth graders. At this point on little looked at me and said, "You teach fifth grade too? You must be smart."
Yep, I'm smart enough to teach fifth grade too.
As I was nearing home today, driving through a school zone I saw light flashing behind me and then heard the sierne of a police car. I moved to the far right as he raced by. I pulled back into the left lane to make the turn to go home when I notice the police was turning just one block on up the road, so I did something I don't normally do. I went on down the street and turned behind him. I was curious about what had our local police in such a hurry. I soon found out. There had been a wreck at the corner I needed to turn on to get to my house. There was a car upside down in the ditch right at the corner. I'm not sure how the driver of the car had managed to accomplish that feat, but he had. I had to back track back up the street and take a long way around to the house. By the time I drove back by the ambulance was there. I have no idea if anyone was hurt but it did have all the neighbors out gawking. Gotta love small towns.
I would have walked down and gawked with them, but Robert called about that time and reminded me that I was supposed to be at the house closing. No, we didn't buy a new house, but we did refinance the one we are in. Talk about writer's cramps. I lost count of the number of times I signed my name or initialed but we did get a great rate 4.75 fixed for 20 years.
Then I cooked supper -- yes, I actually cooked a meal. Robert gets a meal at least once a week.
Then off to choir practice. Now a little TV and blogging. Life is good.
