First Day Follies...

Today we had a pretty high up VIP in the school district come to visit our school and wish us and the kids a happy first day (and I'm sure get a nice photo-op in..). This VIP stopped by a few classrooms and one of them happened to be mine.

As the big-wig was talking to me and greeting the kids, a camera person happened to trickle in. Cutie Pie girly in my room locked eyes with the camera, screamed, and hid under the table. I began to panic! Crud! This isn't supposed to happen!

Thankfully, the VIP had a pretty good sense of humor about it all and turned to me and said, "I suppose that's my cue to leave..."

During a rather enjoyable moment, one of my students turned to me and said, "You know what Mrs. L? I lied to you earlier." Intriqued, I asked Little Miss Honest what she lied about. "I told you I missed you this summer. I didn't think about you once." I thanked her for telling the truth, expressing that honesty is the best policy, while thinking to myself... you know what.. I didn't really miss you either. I kept that lie to myself.
