I made it through the first week of school fine. My kids seem like they're going to be a lot of fun. It's going to be a challenge, but I tried to start things differently this year, so maybe it'll be a bit easier to get them to do something for me. On the whole, they seem like they really are good people, just really squirrelly. We'll see what happens. I do have one class with 21 boys and no girls. That's going to be interesting. I have a feeling it'll be a smelly classroom when they're there.
Today was our first puente (Monday holiday) of the school year. The only plans I had were to spend time at the pool. Too bad it's been rainy and cloudy all weekend. Very disappointing. I tried today, but a downpour started as soon as I got there, so Tina and I ended up having lunch and bloody marys and going home. Total bummer.
