Random Thoughts Thursday

Am I crazy for being appalled that my college classmates would use emoticons and "lol" in a graded assignment?
The sun has been shining for the last couple of days, and it's heavenly. Of course, it was shining for the last several months. But the two were separated by a week of rain, and I'm mourning the passing of our gorgeous Indian summer. I love Fall, but I love it best when it's crisp and sunny.
I need to get busy on Halloween costumes. That volcano outfit is not going to make itself.
I love listening to Ellie read. She's come a long way in just the last few weeks.
There's no school for middle schoolers tomorrow, so Vicki and her friends are going on a "field trip" to the Portland Art Museum. We did this last year, and it was great. Even if they're not learning, they can still learn.
Lexi told me this morning that her iPod isn't quite as exciting as she thought it would be because she can't take it to school. Translation: she was hoping to look cool with it. Poor kid. Life's tough.
I am fundraisered out. Please let there be no more fundraisers at either school for a long, long time. At least until Girl Scout cookie sales are over.
I'm not looking forward to cookie sales. It doesn't start until January, but I'm already dreading it.
My brother-in-law moved to Australia last month. Now Ellie wants him to send her a koala. Secretly, so do I.
Also, he wants the girls to make a video of the toilet flushing so we can compare and see if they really do swirl the opposite direction down under.
Vicki's been complaining of a stomachache for the last several days. We finally figured out the problem - gym class. She's using muscles she hasn't been using before. Definitely a good thing.
My kids hate my nutrition class. It's ruining their lives. I love it.
