Friday Fill-Ins #177

Wow, I'm posting twice in the same calendar week! I really am planning to write more during the summer. We'll see how that works out, especially since I am the chauffeur who drives my children to their many social engagements during the summer. But I can't be any more worn down than I am now. It's definitely the end of the school year, and the students' behavior shows it. Ten more days!--wait, nine and a half (the last day is a half day.) Oh well, I still love teaching--but there's a REASON for that summer break.

I haven't done the Friday Fill-Ins in a while, so here we go...

1. My children's laughter never fails to make me smile.

2. I'm looking forward to sleeping in when school is out. (And by "sleeping in," I mean "later than 7:30 a.m.)

3. Guitar-heavy rock music from whatever show Justin's watching  is what I'm listening to right now. No, wait, he changed the channel. He changes it every few seconds, like a typical man.

4. Potato salad must have yellow mustard in it!

5. The chopped beef BBQ sandwich I had for dinner was the best thing I ate today. (Very easy, too--I chopped up leftover pot roast, mixed it with BBQ sauce, heated it up, and put it on buns. Easy peasy.)

6. Today was challenging because I am dealing with parents who are questioning my decisions in correcting their children's misbehavior. Sixth grade parents are not like parents of high schoolers.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to putting a check in the bank (finally!), tomorrow my plans include going to a cookout with the other volunteers who help with the kids' ministry at our church, and Sunday, I want to see my extended family!



  1. For me, anything after 7:30 definitely counts as sleeping in! I hope that your kids will be on board with that idea.

  2. Yay for summer! I'm ready, too, and I'm not a teacher or a student. Being homework-free and not having to have a set time to get Olivia there will be so nice!

    See you there tomorrow.

  3. Sorry Al couldn't read one fill in...the lettering was too pale for my stupid computer to read. It needs to go back to school! I've been off for a bit too. Good thing that two posts in one week! Keep up the good work
