Today was Halloween. It was a long and challenging day. My students were fine. They were typical fourth-graders on Halloween. There was a parade at school and there was a small class party where we shared some treats and watched Charlotte's Web (we just finished the book and, as I do every year, I wept as I read aloud the second to last chapter. I'm predictable.). I had an IEP meeting in the afternoon (on Halloween). Tomorrow, we'll begin our day with our monthly staff meeting. There is homework to do prior to the staff meeting. Plus, I have school work that HAS TO BE DONE TONIGHT. There is no way around it. I am exhausted. I want nothing more than sleep. I survived Halloween. There is little else to say tonight.
The dinosaure pictured above is actually one of my students. This actually happened today. That is all.
