Was reading an article about a 5 year old girl who was arrested at school. At first I was appalled (like anyone who reads these sensationalized stories). But then I was reading the debate on my teacher forum, and realized THE KID PROBABLY DESERVED IT. Give some props to the police who did the unpolitically correct thing and removed a dangerous kid from a classroom. Teachers shouldn’t have to put up with kids like that.
The snow has all melted. I went out to do a damage assessment on my yard yesterday. All my flowers look ok, except for the daffodils, which were starting to fade anyway. There are quite a few things that haven’t bloomed yet, so hopefully they’ll be ok too.
