*yellow air, yellow car, yellow driveway, yellow house, yellow "rain" outside my window
*sneezes, sniffles, headaches, coughing, sore throats, itchy eyes (see above)
*starting new allergy medicine that makes you just about comatose after 8:30pm (see above again)
* sweet dimpled knees - isn't it funny how dimpled knees are only cute on a toddler?
*lots of flowers from my babies
*screaming 4 year olds and the occasional screaming 16 year old running into the house after school because a wasp/bee/hornet/yellow jacket is within 10 feet
*standardized testing - yuck
*six year olds who forget everything they ever learned while completing said standardized testing
*grouchy teacher who notices that said six year olds seemingly forget everything they ever learn on standardized test and envision being canned when results return in May
*six year olds who do such things as these (therefore annoying grouchy teacher even more, often to a level she thought not possible):
~spit showers-yeah. It is as gross as it sounds.
~pick their noses (while their hand is oh so inconspicuously over their nose) and then
nonchalantly rub it on the carpet
~follow you into the bathroom, stick their head under the stall and say, "Is that you Mrs.
Stone?" "Hey Natalie, come here....it's Mrs. Stone!"
~fight with their best friend/reading partner/ table mate 354 times about such things as who
should pick up the green scrap of paper, who the double sharpened pencil really belongs to,
looking at/touching/breathing on each other
~tattle about best friend/reading partner/table mate 354 times even though the rule is no
tattling unless someone is hurt, bleeding, on fire, or breaking one of God's rules
*The light at the end of the tunnel
And best of all.....
Only 8 more days!!
Not that I'm counting or anything....
