School Stories part Whatever

It's been an exciting week at Smalltown School, and it's only Tuesday.

Yesterday, at Ernest's Upper Campus, the science teacher did an experiment with potassium and there was a lot of smoke and the alarm went off. That was perhaps the most exciting science class ever.

In my first grade neck of the woods, we've found interesting things on the playground. On Monday, it was a giant pile of doggie-doo. Today, it was a dead crow. Yes -- there it is:

First graders are sooooooo curious about these strange things! And of course when you tell them, "Step back, move away," they all creep closer.

Tomorrow will be equally thrilling -- the 8th graders have to be at school at 4 a.m. to leave for their 3-day trip to Catalina. I envy the two families that live right across the street from the school -- they can just push their kids out the door and they are there. The Handy Husband suggested drawing straws to see who will take Matthew to school, but I don't think he was serious.

Who is going to have to take Ernest to school at 4 a.m.?
Smalltown Mom
Handy Husband

UPDATE: In a boldly surprising move, the Handy Husband volunteered to take Ernest at 4 a.m. Then he went to work early. Hooray for the HH!

4:00 am is cruel and unusual. Couldn't you just drop him off the evening before? With maybe a sleeping bag?

Your blog looks so purdy. Except for the dead crow picture. ;-)

4 AM? Ack!

Your poll you accused me of voting repeatedly!

PS I voted for you.

Part of our marital contract is that he does that 4 a.m. stuff. Mostly because I'm a total beyotch if I do.

Lovely blog make-over!
