It has been one of those weekends where Husband takes the boys out of the house on a fun adventure so I can stay at home and work on school work. Good times.
So I had been struggling on my 500 word portfolio entry on where I am with the standard of effective teaching, making sure I could supply concrete evidence to support my assertions when the boys came home.
500 word. They had been gone for hours.
I was feeling frustrated. I also had one more 500 word portfolio entry to work on that I had not even started.
Carter came bursting through the door chatting about their trip to the nature center. I spied on his shirt a small button and asked him what it said. He informed me that he had found it in the parking lot and that I could have it. I reached up to take it off his shirt, only reading it once it was resting in the palm of my hand.
Yes, yes they do. Sometimes words take a while. After a late lunch or an early dinner –whatever you want to call it – Husband and the boys left again, this time to go swimming at the Y.
I wrote on. I am now finished with my 1,000 words, but they sure took a while!
If any of you know what this button is talking about, please let me know. I am guessing it is a grammar thing regarding awhile vs. a while but I am too lazy to look it up.
