Detour- Did I ever tell you I hate grades and standardized state testing? Well, you haven't spent much time with me then because I've just completed both and I rant and rave from two weeks before, throughout the whole ordeal. At least we used to get two half days to do conferences, now I have to do them after school for my twenty four students. Why can't we just mark progress. I have some kidlets who work like dogs and will never be on the coveted A/B honor roll. I have others who are as bright as new pennies and will ever be on the A/B honor doing very little, cause they simply don't care to do anything more than what's required of them. UGHHHHH.
Anyway, back to the Leprechaun strand. I probably comment on FB about two times a year. But I added that Uncle Sam could visit on Flag Day. How about the Ghost of Something Past for Memorial Day. The Garbage Man for Labor Day, by which time I am literally crying I'm laughing so hard. What, you don't find it so funny? Well, you must of had a better week than I've had.
What is particularly interesting about this is I'm a big celebrator and I think any day is a good one for gifts and dessert. Though I love to give gifts, it stresses me a bit of the generations we've raised standing around with their hand out, expecting everything great and small to be handed over to them.
Hats off to all those young folk who work hard for they have.
And this picture, well it is just because he's cute and how can you look at that sweet face and not smile ( you know, a little gift in case you were forgotten by the Leprechaun too).
Happy Saint Patrick's Day
