There's no place like home, there's no place like home...

Two quick pictures from the car ride to Tucson. We were getting a little loopy.

Anyway, we made it through the week! This has to have been the world's longest 4 day week. I don't know why it seemed to go so slowly, but perhaps it was looking forward to sleeping in for the first time in 3 weeks. Chris and I have had a busy few weeks (so much so that the poor little girl scout who was trying to deliver our cookies started to worry about us) and I'm really looking forward to a weekend with nothing major planned. Tonight is a little surprise evening for Chris's birthday, and after that I plan to sleep, knit, ride the trainer, and enjoy watching it snow with my car warmly in the garage. I'm tired, I need sleep, I need a weekend. There must be 2 feet of dog fur piled up on the wood floor waiting for me to have a spare moment to swiffer vac it. I'm actually looking forward to doing that.

Funny kid moment of the week: Last week was the 100th day of school. As part of the 100 days activities, the kids had to fill in a paper that said something like "I want 100 ______ but I don't want 100 _______" and "I can hold 100 ________ but not 100 _______." Keep in mind I teach pretty much all native spanish speakers. In spanish, the 'i' makes the 'e' sound and in kinder and 1st grade they pretty much only write sounds they hear in words. One kid intended to write "I can hold 100 pennies". Now think about it for a second. He knew it started with pen... he doesn't know to double the n, and he thinks the "ie" is just an "i" -- add the s and what do you get? Haha. "I can hold 100 penis" haha. That one is a classic and I'm sure it's not the last time I will see "pennies" spelled that way in my career.

Our home looks great now :) Thanks for cleaning it up. Maybe we'll be over the last of the "super cold bikes melting in the kitchen" weather?
