    HMMM Do It with home made ranch, she says...When did my journal go XXX?

    Today is my last day of work. The trick is to keep a lid on 30 kids who are pumped for the vacation for 43 minutes. In high school, at least the group changes every 3 quarters of an hour. Today, I have an extra credit puzzle for them which is only offered to those kids who come to school today. We will also be watching "Shrek" in Spanish.

    Yesterday my 8th period class almost got the best of me , but I sparked their interest with some good old historical smut. We are studying the Spanish painter Goya. I showed them the painting of the royal family of King Carlos the 4th. We talked about realism; How the artist depicted the fat, red faced king in an unflattering way. We talked about genetics in royal families and then for the finale, I pointed out that the Kings brother was standing next to one of the King's daughters...HIS WIFE! They were horrified.lol

    In other news, I have made my to do list for the next 2 days before we take off for Florida. I have a lot to do, but once I get there and Xmas is over, I can relax. I'm happy about the presents I bought for my family, but my Xmas spirit is weak. My Mom is never far from my thoughts.

    This is not going to be an easy Christmas for you. It will be slightly easier because you won't be at home though. 3 of my grandparents passed away on holidays, 2 on Easter weekend and 1 on New Years Day, it makes for bittersweet celebrations.

    My son might have stuck with Spanish if you had been his teacher, he switched to French in middle school thinking he would switch to Latin or Geman when he got to High School anyway. then they cut both languages, so he is stuck taking French for the 4 years!

    My own son barely passed French with a 67. I thought my middle boy would take Spanish, but they exempted him from language due to his disability. It was a sad day for me. My third boy has Aspergers' as well, so he is likely to be exempted when the time comes.

    Thinking back, if I would have had the option (which we didn't), I would have taken latin. I took French through college...loved it...keep thinking I'll start again someday in my "spare time" (maybe when I'm not trying to lose weight).

    I took French, ended up dating a French Prof (not mine), who then moved away and would only read my letters if I wrote them in French. I told him it would be like dating a kindergartener! We didn't last long after that. Latin would have been so helpful when I was majoring in Nutrition, it was essentially pre-med, all those terms and memorization, Latin would have made it much easier. DS took Latin in 5th grade but then it wasn't offered after that. He actually liked it, and it would have helped him immensely, both my kids have a "reading learning disability" (in the old days we called it Dyslexia).

    This afternoon, I put together a new cage for our goat. The box said 30 minutes...NOT. It was about 90 min of hard work. Thank God I have my 13 yr old who likes to put stuff together. His father and older brother are useless in that regard.

    When we are home, he is put out on a 20 foot line for most of the day so he can get sun and grass, but he tends to escape often. We are having a neighbor take care of him for 10 days, so we needed a way to let him be outside, but safe as well. It is a 4x8x6 ft dog cage and should work well. It is pretty big, but he will not be able to get a running start to jump over. Who knew, that I would someday be raising a goat like a dog.?
