I'm standing outside during that rotation, and I get this lovely picture from my husband:
In case you can't tell, this is a picture of the Potomic (I think). This is the view he had during breakfast. Great. Rub it in. If the meeting would've been next week, we could've gone with him. We (and by saying that, I mean the boys & I) have been to DC a couple of times. I absolutely love it! It's amazing how you can just feel the power when you get there. I told my sister-in-law that I felt so metropolitan when we rode the metro!
The first time we went it was pretty cold:
The last time we went we saw this:
Unbelievable. Hopefully we can get back up there before some family members get transferred. Nice place to visit, but I don't know if I would enjoy living there. I'm so small town!
At one of my schools, we have some Haitian children that just moved in. They are absolutely adorable, with big beautiful smiles. I walked by as a Kindergarten class was in line to go to the bathroom, and the teacher said, "I think we have a communication barrier." I said, "Why, what's going on" to which she said,"Well, I told her to get in line and she took her shoes off and went to the bathroom!" God love her! I looked over, and saw her shoes perfectly placed on the floor! I'm sure that before school ends she'll be in the mix with all of the other kids. Isn't it amazing how kids are so resilient that way?
Okay, this will be my last post about bus duty, since Friday I'm doing my "Meatless Fridays". Hope y'all have enjoyed a peek into that wonderful world!
Kids are amazing when it comes to language. We had so many who came into our school speaking not one word of English and by the end of the year you'd never know it.ReplyDelete
