~ Last night was the Community Band Concert. The best part about it? My parents were there. One of my sisters came, too, and of course CH was there.

~ The Small Town passed a sales tax increase last election to help build a new high school, so the county tried to pass an increase on Tuesday. Half of the revenue would go to the school, the other half to the roads. It failed. It just breaks my heart: the county schools (where I work) are hurting for money. We spend less on our kids per student than the other 2 city school systems in the county. Teachers spend a lot out of pocket and ask parents to help because there just any money for supplies. Wednesday was a real bummer for me.
~ I have a student who spent a couple of days in the hospital with pneumonia. He was back at school Wednesday, and I popped over to give him his "homework". I went in just in time to hear him say, "Doesn't anybody want to hug me and tell me they missed me?" It was one of the most precious things I've ever heard! Love that kid!
