This week, Friday brings us not only Friday Fragments but also Halloween. Not many ghouls on our cul-de-sac but that was because only two of us bother to put our lights on and buy candy. We don't have many kid friendly neighbors on our street I guess. But that won't put a damper on the Friday Fragments with Mrs. 4444!
Another long week has finally passed. And, of the week, today was the longest day of all. Probably because it's Halloween and there was an awful lot going on at school. No matter. It's all over now and I'm glad. So is everybody else at school.
We have a scarecrow contest every year. The nurse and I had to put one up this year- two people who have zero time to take on anything extra. Sheesh. So, instead of getting busy, I got creative. Since we're starting the bullying program next week, that was the theme of the scarecrows. Here's what I came up with:
Creative, right? LOL Y'all should have seen the kids getting off the bus on Thursday morning. As they passed our scarecrow, they reached out and tried to feel the 'invisible' scarecrow. Priceless!
Our superintendent resigned this week. I don't really have much of an opinion about her. Never have. But I have one about the way the announcement was made at our school. And that will be the topic on the Grits tomorrow.
I had some orange paper lanterns left over from the engagement party back in September 2013 so I turned them into jack-o-lanterns for Halloween.
I am thrilled and delighted to say that tomorrow, our high will be ONLY 55 degrees!!! I can't begin to tell y'all how excited I am! This has been a long time coming.
That's it for now. Tune in to the Grits tomorrow for rant about authority figures and their demands.
