Back to School

Well, it's that time again... Back to School.  I cannot say that I'm entirely enthused about it either, though that is probably on account of only a week off between Summer School and Fall Semester starting up.  This semester, I'm teaching 3 classes again...Mondays, Wednesdays & Fridays at 7 a.m. and 8 a.m. and then Wednesdays at 7-9:45 p.m.  Yep, Wednesdays are going to suck.  Big time.  I anticipate that I'll be mainlining caffeine from pre-sun-up to sun-down.

I had to share my favorite school photo of all time with you guys because I believe it reflects my attitude for today.
No, this isn't just some funny photo I found online, this is my friend Lisa's little boy, Tommy, 4 years ago when he was in Kindergarten.  He hated school and by darn wasn't about to fool anyone who might view his photo in the yearbook into thinking otherwise!  Love it!  It has lived on my refrigerator ever since because it cracks me up!

Poor Tommy! I hope he likes it better now?

So very sad! I can't stand it that he didn't like school. I agree with Abby- you have to tell us if he likes it better now.

Maybe I'm missing a sensitivity chip or something, but I still do not find this sad...I still think it is hilarious!

Maybe because I know that the kid had been going to daycare/pre-school so it wasn't like this was a huge rock-his-world change. Maybe it is because on the night of his first day of school I told him to buck up because he had 16 more years of school at least and looked like I had punched him in the stomach.

I'm not sure he has come around to loving school, but doesn't look like you kicked his puppy in the school pics anymore.

Right now he is the happiest kid in Texas because his mom booked him a trip to Disney/Disney cruise for this week by mistake and he gets to miss the first 4 days of 4th grade!

I can report that he is still not a happy camper about school! Still making the same face in the mornings...
