Safety first.

It's raining here in Dallas and we've got the day off from school because of parent/teacher conferences.

When my children found out, they went into hyper-playdate-planning and I've got some extra kids here for the day to play.

Did I mention it's raining outside? Pouring rain.

Thankfully, no one is as sick as they should be of High School Musical for Wii and you just can't hear "All in This Together" too many times.

Dea is also home from school early so he's teaching the fourth grade boys the finer points of NBA 2009. He's being incredibly patient and they think he's an absolute rock star.

Trey usually handles the teacher conferences because he'd rather hear how the kids are doing than actually have to watch them and all their friends all day; especially when it's raining.

I'm kidding, but he loves him some parent/teacher conferences so they've kind of become his thing.

He just called and all the kids received glowing reports from their teachers. One item of intrest was that last week, Graham's 1st grade class was going over safety rules and each child was asked to think of one of their own and write it down as an assignment.

Graham's was: "Always wear your cup."

I'm sure that's exactly what his teacher was looking for. Exactly.

Ya'll have a great weekend and don't forget to wear your cup!

As usual you make me laugh. As a former teacher I can just see what his teacher was thinking when she read that.

Practical, concise, and lacks subtlety. It's the perfect answer to the question. (I'm a teacher- I know) Tell the boy good job!
