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.
