Look who came to school today!!!!!.....And.....check out that Spiderman cast!!!!!.....And.....look at those cool wheels he gets to ride around on!!!!!
(That's Ms. Natasha, my new college volunteer, in the pic with Sebastian.)
Sebastian returned to school for a little while today and everyone was so happy to see him! He came in a little shy and uncertain, but it didn't take long for him to warm up and flash some of his famous smiles.
We even got to open some of the mail that came to school during and after spring break. That was so much fun! There was a beautiful space themed pillowcase, some Spiderman goodies, (He's wearing one of the Spiderman socks he got in the pic!) and a box full of beautiful blank cards with envelopes that Sebastian can use as thank you cards for his doctors and nurses.
Sebastian didn't stay for very long today and may not put in a full day at school for some time, but that's ok.
Today he came to school and for just a little while my class was complete again.

I really wish I had a fun, exciting story to tell you but I don't. This was just a long boring week. Going back to work after spring break and the time change kicked my butt! The only thing I've wanted to do lately is sleep!
I even turned down the chance to order fajitas because I was too worn out to get all pretty for the Cute Fajita Delivery Guy.
I did go see The Hunger Games on Friday and loved it! Have you seen it? What did you think?
Now, I'm off to get some more of that wonderful sleep that I just haven't been able to get enough of lately.

September 2, 1996
Harmony sat in her seat quietly and waited for class to start. The three girls who shared Harmony’s table talked and giggled as they told stories about summer, the other kids in class and how cute their teacher was. No one was paying any attention to Harmony and she liked it that way.
“Excuse me, we’re talking to you.” Harmony looked up to see the girls at her table staring at her.
“Is there something wrong with you? Are you sure you’re in the right class? They have a class for the slow students down the hall.” The little girl who seemed to the be leader of the three said smuggly.
“I’m new here.” Harmony answered.
“Oh, well, I’m Brooke and this is Ashley.” She said pointing to the girl with long auburn hair. “That’s Hayley sitting beside you. We’ve been friends since Kindergarten.”
“Hello” Harmony whispered as she smiled at the three pretty friends.
Brooke continued to talk for the group. “Everyone wants to be friends with us. Would you like to be our friend?”
Harmony sat up a little straighter in her chair. “Yes, I don’t have any friends.”
All three girls laughed. “You don’t have any friends? That’s messed up. Are you weird or mental.”
“I don’t know what that means.”
Brooke looked back and forth between her friends and exhaled loudly. “Why don’t you have any friends?” She asked Harmony exasperated.
“I’m new here.”
“Well, that explains why we’ve never seen you before. Where did you live before?” Brooke pressed for details.
“I lived with my Grandma Pat.”
The three girls rolled their eyes at each other, before Brooke continued with the questions. “You lived with your grandmother. That’s so sweet. My mom teaches fifth grade here and my father is a policeman. Ashley’s dad works at one of the big banks downtown and her mom stays home with the baby. Hayley’s family own a restaurant on the beach. What do your parents do?”
Harmony lowered her voice as she answered. “I don’t have parents.”
The three girls exchanged looks sending secret messages to each other, but Brooke continued to do all the talking. “How can you not have parents? Everyone has parents.”
“I’ve never had parents. I lived with my Grandma Pat until she got sick and now I live with The Harrisons. They‘re friends of Grandma Pats from church”
All three girls moved as far away from Harmony as they could get without actually leaving the table. After a few moments of silence Brooke once again spoke for the small group of friends. “I don’t think our parents would want us to be hanging around with you. After lunch, you better move to another table.”
The three girls spent the rest of the morning ignoring Harmony.

Spring break is over and it was back to work for me today. UGH!
The good news is that there were some more cards and packages waiting for Sebastian when I got there. THANK YOU!!!
Sebastian is getting his Spiderman cast put on Wednesday, so if you could remember him and his doctors in your thoughts and prayers that day it would be appreciated. I've already told mom that we want to see a picture of that cool cast!

It's been a rough week for most of my boyfriends! First Russell Brand got arrested and then George Clooney. Orange Croc Guy is the only one that managed to stay out of the clink. I asked him if he wanted to throw a strangers cell phone, cross a police line or maybe rob a bank so that he wouldn't be the underachiever in my life. He said no but, that he may want to have me committed. Then he went back to watching basketball like I wasn't even in the room.
MEN! Can't live with 'em. Can't get 'em all arrested at the same time!
I've been taking black and white photos all week for my class. I love black and white photos! They seem sad somehow and so that fit with my mood after having two thirds of my boyfriends arrested. Here are some of the pics I'm thinking about presenting in class tomorrow. Let me know what you think...
Oh, and could you try to let me know what you think before my class starts at 9 AM. lol!
I don't think I'll be losing the least creative title any time soon, but that's ok. I'll wear my crown with pride as I hang out with my underachiever. lol!
