It's been a while since I've taken a moment to put down thoughts here.

I'm working in air conditioning for the first time in my professional career. If you've never tried to squeeze education into young minds which are contained in over-heated young bodies, you really can't possibly understand the jubilation with which I have greeted the past month. You know what, though? Kids are complaining of being cold, now.

My class this year is very challenging. I'm working on improving myself in several areas in order to meet the challenge positively. The administration has been very supportive of me, and I'm learning a good bit from them. Other teachers (ESL, SPED, Title 1) come in from time to time, and I can see potential for my room to be an amazing place for getting a good education. (Potential, you'll remember, is a big word that means "hasn't done squat yet").

I've been sleeping much better, lately, and I'm pretty sure that this has a lot to do with my lack of posting. I'm pretty much ok with that, though. It's been a years of firsts. This summer was the first time I've been able to take my daughters on vacation. I was talking about that earlier; what an amazing experience that was for me and (I hope) them. I also recognize Leah for being instrumental for so many of the good things going on in my life right now.

Tonight's joke comes courtesy of Mike Smith:

Three guys were sitting around on lunch break, and the discussion wandered to the topic of what each would like people to say when standing over his casket at his funeral.

Bob said, "I'd like people to look down at my body and say something about what a dedicated father and husband I was, and how I took such good care of my mom there at the end."

Larry said, "I think I'd like people to look down at my body and mention what a good Christian man I was, how the church was so important to me and that I worked hard to improve the lives of others through charity and mission work."

Edgar mused for a moment, and then said, "I think what I'd really like people to say is 'OH MY GOD, I THINK HE'S MOVING!!'"
