Currently... and picture day thoughts

So today I'm linking up with the February "Currently" party with Farley at Oh Boy Fourth Grade

Here we go:

On a completely unrelated topic, today was class picture day.  As I was doing my hair this morning, I thought, why am I primping and getting all pretty? Why am I wearing my "good" clothes? Wouldn't it be better just to throw my hair up in a ponytail and throw on those clothes that I wear everyday?  You know, the ones that I don't really get that upset over if some sweetie gets paint or marker on them.  I mean, years from now, will my cuties look at this class picture and think, "Who is that lady with the nice clothes and hair standing behind us?  Mrs. Spradlin always had her hair in a pony and never wore really nice clothes like that!"  So, do you get all "dolled up" on picture day, or are you one of those teachers I aspire to be?  You know - the ones that look like it's picture day everyday!


  1. I'm so sorry about your friend. Cancer sucks.

    That is WONDERFUL that your class is so good this year.

    I always dread school pics - but ours are in September.
