Lessons learned today

  1. I hate standardized testing.  
  2. Teachers get real...mmm...grumpy during testing.  You can smell the stress, see it in the sweating red faced adults pouring through the 8 pages of directions.  Checking and double checking directions and paper work. Don't get me started on the endless shh-ing  and stank-eyes..it is enough to exhaust.  A complete whip.  
Think she has got to be a teacher

3.  Watching 7th graders try to eat peanut butter sandwiches in a silent room while the goodness gets all    caught up in their braces.  Ewwwwy. 
4. In 7 hours of silence I talk to myself a lot.  I got through two character sketches for the book.  Yipee me!  
5.  Two more days of the 14 hour days and I get a break! Thank God!

Dreaming of my view from home.  Can't wait till Friday...
