Tony’s name was not on the list of names for his class on the first day of school as a freshmen, a nice “Welcome, you don’t matter” He had to stand in a 30 minute line with other freshmen who matter just as much, and was late for his class. So I followed all the rules pre-registered, he went to registration and ….we get the boobie prize.
Nick’s Dyslexic. So he had to find his classes that he was handed on the first day of school without any help, stressful for someone without issues but even more stressful with processing issues
Joe is lucky enough to be born with an attitude that really allows for anything. So the unknown does not bother him one bit, one out of three approve of this crappy system.
I ask myself why is this super secret process such a circus? Is it because the administration can’t stand up to pushy parents who demand certain teachers? Those parents get what they want know matter what hoops you make them jump. Is it a lack of organization? Poor computer programs? Wouldn’t it be magical if it was explained.
We(the school admin) make the transition back to school awkward, complicated, and last minute because
a) we can
b) job security
c) we don’t like children and want them to suffer as much as possible
d) it a process you are to stupid to understand
…..I’m not ready to deal with this crap, my filter is not operating yet. I want summer back.

Three Kiddos in three different schools! Let the games begin. A bit of my heart goes with each boy and a hope. I hope they are kind and I hope they find kindness. This is a roller coaster kind of day I tell you….just a rollercoaster.

Not sure if it’s the 150th anniversary of the Gettysburg address that geeks me out or the really loud booms, but I do Love coming every year!
Farewell summer days of coming home from sports and plopping in front of a glowing screen. School starts soon and that means video games are fair game on the weekends only. Today is a day of sitting and enjoying the end of summer, ahhhhh how numb your butts must be from sitting so very long!
I got to pickup Nick from football last night and drive home with him all by myself. And he was alllll teenage snarkie and I was in a good mood and said, “you can be crappy all you want but I still love you and you still love me, hahahahahaha”
