No more bully!

Download word art here

According to Sebastian's mom the kid who was making fun of him has apologized.  The kid even offered to help Sebastian carry his books.

I'm guessing someone had a nice long heart to heart with the kid and I am so glad his heart was open enough to hear their words.

So, Sebastian has survived his first bully.  I hate that he had to go through it, because I can't help but feel like some of his innocence was lost. 

However, he survived and he will be a little stronger when the next bully shows up.

Small Victories

The Miami Dade County Public School System has announced that they will FINALLY cut back on some of their required testing!  They are saying that this will result in up to 260 minutes of additional instruction time. 

That's a little over FOUR HOURS of testing that these poor children won't have to endure.

I think it's awesome! 

It's still just a small victory though because there are still lots and lots and lots of tests that are required thanks to that whole stupid "no child left untested" mentality of the powers that be.

But...a victory is a victory and I am happy!

Odd & Ends

Download word art here

I've gotten lots of questions lately so I thought I would take a minute to answer some of them.

I teach Kindergarten in Miami.  My school isn't in the best neighborhood and the teachers have to purchase most of their own supplies for the class and the kids.  I purchase all art supplies on my own!  But....I have some of the best blog readers in the world and you guys have taken good care of me and my class.  THANKS!

Sebastian is doing well and doesn't have another surgery scheduled anytime soon.  Despite his recent bully run in he's still the happiest kid alive.  I've asked for the name of the little girl who stood up for him, but haven't gotten it yet.  His mom forgot and she wants to be careful about bringing it up to him again.

I don't sell my word art or photos anywhere, but you can always make a paypal donation if you would like.  I won't turn it down. lol! 

I will gladly make a special request word art for you, but since I work and play a lot I may need a few days before getting it to you. 

Now, even though I still have a ton of photos from my North Carolina trip, today will be the last day I share some with you.  I don't want you to overdose on my photos.  Of course, if you cry and beg for more I'll share them because I don't want to be the reason you cry.  lol!

BE 24 days Orange Croc Guy and I are heading back to the mountains.  This time we'll be staying in Tennessee and I'll have a bazillion more pictures to bore you with. lol!

PLUS...I'm probably going to need another run away day or two between now and then.  I'll make sure I document that too.

Abandoned Hotel

Download word art here

The first rule of Urban Explorers is that you don't vandalize the places you explore and that includes breaking into them.  It's acceptable to enter through an opening that someone else has already created.  So, basically we enter, but we don't break and enter.

That's why it was so heart breaking when we couldn't find a way to enter this abandoned hotel in Boone.  We could see rooms that still had TVs and furniture and mattress' stacked on the floor.  All photos had to be taken through the strong, sturdy  fence that surrounded the whole hotel.
