Last night was my first night back at work after 7 months! It was good to be back in the classroom. I have a big, loud, enthusiastic class, and my throat is still a little sore after trying to speak over them for 2 1/2 hours. It’s going to be a fun quarter as soon as I figure out how to log in to my computer and learn how to say my students’ names. One of my students has 5 consonants at the beginning of his name and, unfortunately, no nickname. Some teachers assign English nicknames to these kinds of students. I could name him “Joe” and all of his future teachers would be grateful for the change, but I can’t bring myself to do it.
While I’m at school, Dave & Sam are home alone. Sam’s first Daddy night was a success, though his head was bumped on things more than I would have liked. 🙂 I came home to a baby boy with a big red mark on his forehead and a giant smile on his face. Sam likes playing with his dad! As you can see, he doesn’t have any bruises, thankfully.
