Luck of the Draw...

...or in the case of DS, the no-good, very-bad luck of Jacob and his teachers! Today is the first day of school and we went up to meet his teacher yesterday. It is 6th grade this year and we had received a note with who his teacher was and their class room number last week...pretty normal. We walk into the room and it is BARREN...think prison cell barren...no decoration, no extra books (besides the ones piled high on the desks, no welcoming signs...NOTHING, but 2 ladies standing there. We ask if one of them is the teacher he is supposed to have...NOPE! Big changes here. He has a new teacher (the one standing meekly in the corner not saying a single word...not even to the kids), but she is still having to finish up her job elsewhere and won't be at the school for 30 days. So yep, my poor DS (and the rest of his classmates) have a substitute for the first 30 days of school this year. NICE!

I could go on and on here about DS and his awful history with teachers (one that I had specifically requested he NOT have and one that died--2 years of school completely lost because he didn't learn a darn thing) and believe me, he has enough trouble with school without teacher issues, but I will stop now because I swore I wouldn't use this blog to vent.

Luckily DS's attitude is much better than mine!!!

On to more fun stuff...here is yesterday's work that I did for the LSS...just fun projects. Today I have one more fun project to complete and then I will take them all down to the LSS. BTW, 7 down, 93 to go.

What a bummer about DS's teacher situation, but good to hear he has a good attitude about it.

7 down and 93 to go. Well, I think you should be able to count your cards in the countdown. Just think how much faster that would make you get to the magic 100 number. Good luck my friend, you are much stronger than I.

Make sure that DS is taken care of. I can come to help with the teacher if necessary - I would welcome that kind of stress relief right now! Say hi to the family and the layouts are great.
