First Week of School Fragments

It only seems appropriate to participate in Mrs. 4444s' Friday Fragments after the first week of school. Besides, it's fun! Even when I'm a day late. Story of my life. Ha!

Half-Past Kissin' Time

Yes, the first week of school has come and gone. Not in a flash. But it is gone. I don't know a single soul at our school who isn't completely exhausted with the exception of the students who were still up and running strong on their way out of school yesterday afternoon. The faculty and staff, though we wanted to run out full of energy, barely made it to our cars to drive home and collapse. Nevertheless, the week was fantastic! Every single class I saw (K-5) was a pure delight. Our students this year are wonderful! Of course, ask me if I still feel that way around December...

A teacher at our school challenged the rest of us to the ALS ice bucket challenge. I didn't make it in the 24 hour limit so I am donating. Would I have had the bucket of ice water dumped on my head. Sure. But it's not easy to get two people - one to dump one to video- when everyone is working and does not live at home anymore. I'd rather donate anyway. Dumping ice water on our heads won't help the cause other than to spread the word. Pretty sure it's been spread.

Tucker has not been happy that school has resumed. He sits and waits for me daily. Luckily, DoodleBug is home still and provides company for my sweet pup. The first thing I do when I get home is get in the floor and get mauled by Tuck. 

FYI: Remember that my bestie from high school wrote a murder mystery novel, OverTheTop? Well, she did. I wrote a review and hosted a giveaway for a free copy. And the winner is: Gail from At The Farm! Gail is aware and I will be getting that in the mail to her ASAP. It's a car issue that I won't go into since it sends me into a rant every time I think about it. 

Anyway- Congrats, Gail!!

And, thanks to Mrs. 4444s for hosting Friday Fragments!

Have a great weekend, y'all!


  1. I'm not doing the ice bucket thing either. I'm sure that most of all the celebrities did both the cold shower of ice water and donated.
    Because of this ALS had a record year of donations. So that's good, but I don't need the ice water.

  2. bill- When I think about all the water issues we have worldwide, I have a hard time doing this anyway. I'm much rather donate. One of my daughters donated half to ALS and half to I was thinking I'd do that as well. Though the ice water would feel good right now. Our temps have been in the 100s and I don't even want to mention the heat index. UGH.

  3. Glad your liking the students, hope that feeling stays around all year! I didn't do the challenge but I did donate to ALS. Congrats to Gail!


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! It makes me feel connected to everyone even though we may live far apart! Have a wonderful day!
