Oh say can you say


So I was coaxed into teaching Junior Achievement for Graham's class this year. It is an optional supplemental program that schools can use that teaches kids about community, the role of government, business, and money. Ryan says I need to learn how to say "no," but I think this is a fun program and I like to be involved with the kids in school and extracurricular things when I can. I told him I am perfectly capable of saying no when I want to.

Today was the first of five 1/2 hour lessons. Graham, as usual, had several remarks that caused me to wonder, where do they come up with this stuff? At the end of the lesson I pointed out a donut shop on our large poster containing numerous businesses and said that when I came back on Wednesday we would be learning about business and focusing on this donut shop. The kids immediately said, "Are you going to bring us donuts?" I said that I didn't know, perhaps I would need some donations. To which Graham called out, "you mean "donut-ations?"

do you have a time-turner you're not telling us about? are you a closet amphetamine addict? WHERE do you find time/energy to do all you do? I'm in awe of your stamina. And Graham, that was very clever, you get the funny guy of the day award.

Oh, I love Graham. He is the cutest. I also think he is a big "Ham". And I am with Kristin, I don't know how you find the time for all that you do. I'm sure your boys love it when you come to their class.
