Days 42-43 – new school year

“I don’t like doing things that I don’t like to do,” said the 15 year old who is switching schools and was on his last day in Livonia. I talked to him very adamantly about laziness, the work world, and how he shouldn’t waste all his time now. “I figure now’s the time to have fun because later I won’t be able to spend all this time on video games and stuff.” Too bad he doesn’t realize that stocking up on tons of fun now won’t hold over in future years – if anything, it will just make him want to keep it going.

This week: I did Kindergarten in Melvindale yesterday and for the rest of the week I’m subbing for Chemistry/Biology in a Livonia high school. Today went very well, so I suspect that the rest of the week will also. Another remarkable happening was the appearance of several “flour children” in the class. One of the classes has assigned the students to carry around 10 lb bags of flour dressed as babies. They have to keep them with them at all times, or get a sitter, keep them safe, and they even have to email their teacher between 2 and 4 a.m. every night. 🙂 I enjoyed seeing the “babies”, hearing their names, and, of course, talking with the girl who had 2  five pound twin boy flour children. 🙂
