a happy day

This morning:
blissful thirty minutes of alone time, outside in the courtyard, with a nectarine, lesson plans, and a plenty of refreshing October sunlight.

This afternoon:
After reading about "special" dreams in The Giver, one of my students says:

This reminds me of this movie called 187. Have you seen it? It's this movie where they don't let people have intercourse unless they are wearing intercourse helmets. And the helmets let you have intercourse, but not with a person, it's like you're having intercourse with the helmet. Ms. L have you ever seen this movie?*

This evening:
delicious cup of homemade chili, made from ingredients in the house and purchased on $20 budget, about to watch Obama face off against McSame...

oh, happy day!

*and yes, this is totally true! I can't make up the things my kids say.

If you like refreshing October sunlight, you need some time in Washington! We're having those crisp and cool October days that smell like fall. It's so nice to see leaves changing color and to bust out my cute long sleeved shirts and adorable jackets. :)

P.S. I love the weird things kids say. You should compile a book.
