Ok,I'm off. The honkin' bag is packed, the lists made, the students prepped. We fly out of Chicago this afternoon, and we wake up tomorrow in Spainland! We'll be based in Madrid for 4 days, with day trips here and there to Toledo, Segovia, then it's off to Sevilla, Córdoba, Granada and then Barcelona.
My year ended on a sour note. Mr. Prissy Pants Old Man in my department has delusions of grandeur and basically thinks he's the only one in our department who meets National Standards and throws a fit when he doesn't get his way. Luckily, our principal is on to him and listens, nods and then tells him "no" to whatever he's whining about.
On a funny note, Lydia dressed up her Bitty Baby in overalls and then told me, "Mom, I put the stuffed hay bale in his overalls and then called him Pregnant Man." It's the new superhero! Pregnant Man to the rescue! No time to fully expand on this - but the possibilities are endless!
Don't know about the bloggin' for the next week or so.
