Today begins the last weekend before the 2007-2008 school year begins. Lots of new beginnings happening.
All three had the same first grade teacher. When The Man the three Darlings walked in, she burst into tears. There was a long line to see her and she ran over and told them to please, please come back in a bit when the line eased up. Here they are:
They popped in to see The Little Boy’s teacher from last year. Again, all three have had him. He had just said to My Girl, “so…what happened to all of your Pooh fat?” Oh yes, so like him. You can see My Girl’s reaction.
He was NOT My Girl’s favorite teacher.
And finally, they popped in to see The Little Boy’s 6th Grade teacher this year. Again, The Boy and My Girl both had her.
She was My Girl’s favorite teacher, EV-er. The Boy told The Little Boy, “you will LOVE her”. I have to say, she was one of my faves of the Darling’s teachers, too.
More beginnings. Last night was also My Girl’s first real season varsity volleyball game. Varsity plays best of 5. They took 3 of 4. Shouldn’t have had to go to four, but it is the first real competition My Girl’s team has had. They have crushed everyone in their scrimmages and tournaments. It was good to see them have some real competition. All of the games were close. You can tell by the look on My Girl’s face that they were not used to losing a game and having such close scores.
She’s brutal on herself. I can NOT for the life of me figure out where she gets it from.
