Geesh, once again it's been a while since my last posting. Last week I was on Spring Break, and loved every minute away from school. Yes, I love my job. However, I'm antsy to know what school I'm going to next, so I'm not feeling QUITE as devoted as usual. Yesterday my kindergarten students were chatting about what they want to be when they grow up. One of the girls said that she's going to be everything except a fire man because they can burn up and die. The boy next to her wants to be a fire fighter and reminded her that they've got special suits that don't let them die. Another boy in class claimed that he's going to be a super hero. Part of his job will be to put people in jail when they steal, even people in our class. EVEN Mrs. Cannon! This inspired an in-depth conversation about whether or not super heros are real. Last week Zander's parents were in town helping us feel better about all of the cancelled flights that were going to get us out of town, but due to the crappy weather... didn't. We saw a couple of flower shows and had fondue at The Times. We also went to Red Wing for a little get away and stayed at a cute but not too frou-frou bed and breakfast. It was wonderful. Right before we fell asleep we talked about how much our pillows at home suck and how we are so going to get new ones. Oh, and we went to Emily's party which was lots and lots of fun. Tonight Rebecca and I printed 80 t-shirts for her Forge the Gorge race this Sunday. Printing them on the Gocco was lots faster than I imagined and they look pretty darn cute.
By the way, HAPPY HOUR is a must this Friday at Psycho Suzi's. We'll be there before 5:30. Come!

Welcome back to blog land Julie! The smoking ban in Minneapolis is just the most awesome thing. I can't wait to see shows and not get gagged out with all of the second hand smoke. Psycho Suzies was a big offender of the super stink. Not anymore! Horray!

After we moved I was going through some boxes and found Zander's old "mystery man" costume. I'm not sure why, but it did creep me out (a little). Oh, and I did tell the students that Zander is a super hero... Ok, yeah, and that I am too. I mainly use my powers to open crusty glue bottles for students in need.

I love Zander's story about the kid in his karate class who asked if he was superman (because with his classes at the time, he kind of looked like him)... and Zander said, "yes...and unfortunately Super Man is a yellow belt"...did I get that story right? I love it.

I was standing outside work yesterday morning, watching the sun-rise... when this lady practically danced into the office. She said the smoking ban was lifted... is this true? If so, that was really short lived... =/
