It really was great to be back at school today. I was missing 6 kids so only 23 were there, it made for a nice day. They cracked me up big time though.
We were getting ready to do calendar and I was taking attendance, and talking about how vacation was over and we were now back at school, and I said, “I wish I was still home in my nice warm bed. And this one little boy, who’s parents don’t speak a lick of English, piped up, “Ahhhh, poooor BABY….” WHERE do they get this stuff?
We were doing the nursery rhyme “Baa, Baa Black Sheep”, and since we are in a city, I asked first if anyone knew why the rhyme asked the black sheep if it had any wool, and if they knew what wool was. I got lots of blank looks, so I then asked if anyone had ever seen a sheep. Again, lots of blank looks, finally this one little girl says, “Well, I haven’t seen any sheep, but I have smelled the pig farm……”
Yes, we do have a pig farm, it used to be WAY out of town, but the city has moved out and around it. It’s a singular experience when the wind blows the air from the pig farm your way….
