Questions I Asked My Kids

How do you know summer is coming to end? It gets dark at 8:30 instead of 9:45. You can feel the slightest chill in the evening air that wasn’t there before. Your Orioles have played 114 games are a half a game back from the first place Jays. 

Oh, and school supplies go on sale at your local Wal-Mart (or your favorite school supply store). I get giddy when I see rows and rows of school supplies. I’m not just talking as a parent who is sick and tired of their kids being home all summer and am ready to throw a back-to-school party as soon as they walk out the door. Bang starts school this year. That’s kinda exciting in and of itself. However, I’m also talking as a teacher who is excited to see the halls crowded and noisey, classrooms full of the mess of learning, and the playground alive with the sounds of laughter. 

I think I might be more excited than the kids.

1. Did you have any dreams last night? 

Crash: I was walking down the street going to walmart. I saw all my friends going there, too. They all had iPhones, iPods, and iPads. I didn’t take my tablet so I asked if I could use one of theirs and they said no because they only had one. I went into Walmart and went to the electronics section and saw an awesome super computer but it’s a tablet. It was invisible and you needed special glasses to see it. But I obviously didn’t have the money for it.

: Piper (our quaker parrot) was in Minecraft and Piper died and Crash was crying and Piper survived because she ate some stone with food (apples) in it.

2. What is Google?

Crash: Google is a search internet and another word for infinity.
