They Make Me Laugh

The last day of regular classes for this semester was held today. One of my students brought Scotch-O-Roo's for the class. ("They have chocolate on them Mrs. T, you will like them"). Which is true. I actually adore Scotch-O-Roo's.

One of the student received two, since there were extras. He decided to eat one right away(which he attempted to shove in his mouth whole) and save the other one for later. Everyone was supposed to be working on a exam review sheet, but this student was very distracted today and was not really doing what he should have been. This of course distracts others as well, so I finally said, "If you don't work on your review, I am going to take you Scotch-O-Roo away." That propmted him to get right to work away.

For about three minutes. Then he started right back up again. He was turned around talking to someone behind him, so I stealthfully went up to his desk to get his bar. He turned around just as I got there and said , " No, don't take my bar," and then proceeded to watch me take it off his desk. He totally could have beat me to it if he would have tried, but instead he just watched me take it.

I then hid it from him for the rest of class and all was well in the English room.

Did you eat it? I would!
I used to tell my students that if they played with toys during class time I would take them away and save them for my own kids some day. They were horrified and didn't believe me, I said, "Why would I buy toys if I can get them for free?". Our cat still plays with a Mario ball that I confiscated.

L.M Montgomery's Beginning and End

My birthday present to myself this year was to join the Modern Mrs. Darcy Book Club. It is an online book club and I am so excited to be a part of it. I haven't been in book club in a long time, mostly because all of the invitations I get usually end with, "and at our meetings, we usually don't talk about the book very much, so it doesn't matter if you read it or not." What is the point of a book club if you are not actually going to talk about the book? So, anyway, I am excited to be a part of a community of people who read as much as I do and like to talk about what they read.
I was even more excited when I learned that the pick for November was going to be Emily of New Moon. And since I have lived on PEI for almost 7 years and had yet to visit L. M. Montgomery's Birthplace, I figured it was high time. So the kids and I hopped in the van this afternoon and drove through some lovely countryside to New London, PEI.

Coming Home from Michigan

Following the Truck Parade, we spent a bit of time at a park near Nick and Dawn's house. And then off to airport. 
We were nicely on time. Check-in went fine, but a little longer because of Gideon not being connected to our family. Security was a breeze and we were soon on our way and in Detroit. We easily found our gate in Detroit, had a 10 minute delay for boarding, but soon enough we were on the plane.
And that it when the bottom fell out. 
While on the plane, the pilots revived notice that Toronto was shut down due to weather. We waited about 20-30 minutes on the plane. They gave us snacks. Then they had us get off the plane and wait in the terminal. Every 30 minutes or so we would be updated that we were still delayed. And we were watching dark clouds and lightening roll into the area surround Detroit, too. Soon, the Detroit airport was shut down too. They brought out snacks and drinks a few different times, but finally around 10 pm (so over 5 hours of being delayed in the a…

A Farm Boy Already

I don't fully understand how this happens, but Gideon already loves the tractor. If he is in the kitchen or the living room and he hears the sound of the tractor, he crawls to the closest window and has a look outside. When he sees it, he often starts drumming on the window sill, so excited. He repeats a little "T" sound, like he is trying to say tractor. He hasn't actually gone for a ride in the tractor, yet. But I think he will be pretty excited to that some day soon.
