We will pick it up in a couple of weeks, so I will have between now and then to decide how I want to paint it! This is going to be one of those fun projects....
My heart has been somewhat heavy for our grandkids, today. They are taking the "BIG TEST" today! You know, the one that decides whether or not you are smart enough to move up a grade at the beginning of next year.
Tori came home sick yesterday...Her stomach was hurting and she had a headache!
The diagnosis for this, was NERVES!
She was so nervous about the test she had to take today.
I don't know how the rest of you feel about these kind of test, but I truly feel that our education program has gotten out of hand.
I don't even know what this year's test is called....the reason being, because the state has changed the name of the test so many times.
Of course, you know what happens when you change the name of the test don't you? All new materials have to be printed and new guidelines are enforced. What a waste in my opinion!
What ever happened to the good ol' achievement test that students used to have to take, ever other year?? It was good enough for us, so why would it not be good enough for kids these days?
Not only does the state education program make it difficult for the kids, but this is really stressful for teachers! Oh my, I had better stop right here with this conversation, or I might get myself in trouble...
Anyways.....our kids have more testing this week, so please be in prayer for these little darlings.
Sure hope the weather is treating everyone nicely...It is beautiful here! I can barely see, but the weather is gorgeous. For the first time in forever, I am having allergies. My eyes are red and feel so itchy. I can't seem to quit scratching them...Hopefully this will pass SOON!
Well....that's it for now. Talk to all of you, LATER!
