Every gambler knows that the secret to survivin' is knowin' what to throw away and knowin' what to keep

Meet Heidi, my Little #1! We took this picture at Red Rose Formal last Friday and she wanted it on the blog... so here you go Heidi!  PS: isn't her dress cool?  She got it from the store where I work and it was a perfect fit!

Song of the Day: "The Gambler" by Kenny Rogers

This skirt is old.  And when I say old, I mean that it has been worn by me since its purchase in 2004. Oh, 9th grade, you were good to me. Originally, it was in my rotation of the mundane circle of uniform bottoms.  I was so bored with khaki pants by the time I graduated that I swore off khaki bottoms for 2 years.  But now that I've been uniform-free for almost 4 years, they are back in my "like" pile.

Also, this skirt fits around my hips very loosely but since I'm lazy and won't buy another khaki skirt, I just bundled it up and made it high-waisted.  Did I fool you into thinking that it was a high-waisted paper bag skirt?  I didn't?  Oh well.

Today was day 2 of my teaching week for history and English.  My 6th graders (history) did a Taste of Louisiana activity.  Almost all of them agreed that the best food was the alligator and sugarcane came in a close second.  My 10th graders (English), especially the boys, kept asking me questions about how many parties there are in college.  At least we didn't have to talk about torture techniques anymore... yuck.
