I'm not even gonna pretend that I snapped this shot recently. No, acquired this pretty pink-ish specimen long about November or so, before the weather really turned cold. And snowy. Don't forget the snow!
My cherubs have been super-spazzy since returning from their snow-bound hiatus. We were out 8 days straight & it's certainly more than one Scribe can handle to get them thinking in "school" mode again.
We've been off so many days this school year that the School Board is fixin' to take drastic measures. Our superintendent has proposed adding 30 minutes to the school day between mid-March and June. The idea is to look like we care about educating those kiddos, even though at the high school level ~ where I'm parked ~ it will mean adding 6 whole minutes to each class each day, plus lunch. A tad like spitting into the wind, don'tcha think?
Not sure if Julie & Johnny can cram much more English into their little brains in the extra time they'll be allotted. I do know, however, that my journalistas will have a few precious seconds more to make a bagel or burrito run during lunch.
What do today's impatiens have to do with School Board Policy? Not mucho. Just posted them to remind us all that, try as we might, Old Man Winter will defeat us, every time.
