Me Voy

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.

Buen viaje! I'm curious to know about how you planned for this trip (It's a school trip, right?), as I hope to take students (well, myself as well since I've never really had the opportunity to do much traveling) abroad next year. Please shoot me an email when you get back and have a moment. Mil gracias!

I was in Germany, Austria and the Czech Republic during spring break. Didn't do a bit of blogging--and it didn't kill me! You'll survive--and you'll have stories to tell when you return.
