Good evening all! Well, things are finally settling down a bit, and I'm taking some time in front of the computer without any school work to do. I spent most of last evening with my co-teacher trying to complete some required paperwork. Our county decided over the summer that all of the special education paperwork had to be computerized. So rather than gradually phase it in, we have to enter everything on the child done since February! It's taking forever, and with my caseload the way it is, I'm doing it all at home in the evenings. It's a bit frustrating:( Ah well. What's a body to do:)
The kids have been a trial this week also. I've got a few new bruises, and some pretty bad scratches from one little boy. We're battling almost daily at the moment, and I'm honestly not sure who's winning!

I got to see DH this past weekend. He drove up from Florida on Friday night, and stayed until Sunday afternoon. It was great to spend time with him. We ate breakfast out both mornings (one at Cracker Barrel and one at IHOP). I love the crepes and sausages at IHOP!!!

I haven't stitched alot this week, but I did a bit last weekend (the one before DH visited). I'm planning on doing a few hours this weekend, then I'll post an update pic. I've been focused on the baby sampler - I'd really like to get it all done before Christmas. I've also dug out Celtic Angel again, just to see where I'm at. I may start working on that one soon. So many WIP's, so little time!

Well, I'm off to play EQ for a while before bed. The morning comes early, and the kiddos are wide awake always!


Quote of the Day

I can picture in my mind a world without war, a world without hate. And I can picture us attacking that world, because they'd never expect it.

Hi Claire, What type of special needs kids do you teach - all? I have two autistic grandchildren and their father read about some program here for autistic children. Do you know what he is talking about?

Enjoy any stitching or free time you can grab - it is so necessary to life.

Hey Girl! You have been busy with work! Such a shame you don't get paid for all the extra time you put in... but then teachers never do!

Glad to hear you're getting in some stitching time here and there and that Pat was able to come up and visit you!!!
