Field trip update

I survived my day and so did Kool.

Apparently her mom got her act together enough to give Kool a Lunchable and a Pepsi. When Kool got to school and I gave her lunch she looked through the bag and just stared at me. I was all like, "whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat?" And she told me it rocked and was so much better than her mom's since I got her everything she LIKED. And she took both lunches with her. Ah kids!

I had also made the deal with her that if she behaved on the field trip and I got a good report, since this was a privilege not a right, then I would take her dinner to Pizza Hut, a place she has NEVER been before. Yeah, never ate at a Pizza Hut, I know. So I guess it's the Hut one night next week because everyone was GLOWING about what a good job she did and how well she behaved. WTG Kool!

As for me and my foray into 6th grade for the day................ as Bragger said in a comment to my previous post, "6th graders are Of. The. Devil." I think she summed it up nicely with that statement and I can't add much to that. They made me tired and frustrated.

I did have an encounter with a Rain Man type of kid. Actually it was like Rain Man meets A Beautiful Mind. This kid is brilliant and just.... wow. There are obviously issues, but today I worked on 6th grade math with him for an hour and it was a super great experience. I can't even begin to explain what it was like to converse with this child, other than wow. Good. Wow. And I want to write a case study paper about him. Damn..............

So we all survived Field Trip day. And Monday should be back to the regularly scheduled program. Unless we really get the 10-14 inches snow Sunday night that's in the forecast...........

Congratulate Kool for me. I'd like to send her a little something, but I don't want to embarrass either of you, especially if she doesn't know you've gone "public" with her story. Your thoughts?

Maggie said...

Bragger- I'll give her your Congrats for sure. And go ahead and send something for her if you want- first, I think that would make her day and really help keep driving the point home. And I can sure figure out a way to let her know it's from you without embarrassing her.

And thank you for supporting me supporting her. and you supporting her. Gee, how about thanks.Period.

But you guys still have sit-down Pizza Huts? Wow, we dispatched of those about 20 years ago...

It's all yours! The pink chair. Did you want priority or express??? LOL

Maggie said...

Nancy- my aunt and uncle live in Arlington and my father is going there for a visit over Spring Break and I was begging him to swing through a pick up the chair and bring it home for me. He can't see how it would fit in his little car! I suggested he purchase a pick up or mini van before going but for some reason he wasn't amused.... !

I think the cost of shipping and the price of the chair in combination is far more money than I have, darn it! But I would still LOVE to call it mine! haha!
