What else could I do?

There are some things you just don’t do.
You don’t bet with your heart.
You don’t get involved in a land war in Asia.
And you don’t ignore a request to post from Ms. Cornelius!

I’ve been waaaaaaaaaaaaaay busy of late, and haven’t taken the time to read, let alone write, the blogs that are important to me. That’s a choice on my part, not offered as an excuse, but my own personal reality. I’m working towards my administrative credential, coordinated my district’s GATE program, and spent 8 days on the East Coast with 68 eighth-graders (that is a separate post altogether!), not to mention my two kids and beautiful, understanding wife. Blogging has taken a far-distant place in my priorities list.

But, Ms. Cornelius, my dear blog-friend, here you are. Thanks for keeping my in your thoughts!
And as an added bonus, here are a few pictures from my trip to the east…

    Well, if you’re gonna make us wait that long, at least you provide us with pics of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

    I am amazed. I wouldn’t take high school kids across the street– not necessarily because of them, but because I suffer from bad field trip juju. Everytime I take kids somewhere, the bus breaks down in a neighborhood known for drive-bys with no radio or someone gets lost ad even though they’re not MY student I get punished, so I basically just try to do my teaching within the friendly confines of my classroom. Brave, brave you!

    Now get back to posting here. We miss ya, ya big lug.

    And by the way, you forgot: NEVER go up against a Sicilian when DEATH is on the line!

    And then there’s
    Don’t jump on Superman’s cape.

    Don’t spit into the wind.

    Don’t mess around with the ol’ Lone Ranger.

    Don’t mess around with Jim.

    It’s summer now! Come out and blog!
