We’re back to the salt mines this week after our two-week winter break. Actually, Monday was a Teacher Work Day. It was a rare quiet day to get caught up on all those little tasks you just can’t get to with a passel of short people in the room. I took the opportunity to replenish our supply baskets at the OK Corral.
I’m thinking that if a picture is worth a thousand words, two pictures must be worth twice as many. And a lot of those extra words are probably naughty ones.

I’m not Miss Beadle.
The Winter Break is over. No more living like an actual grown-up, staying up late and sleeping in. It’s back to rising at 5:00 every morning.
Today was actually a Teacher Work Day, a day set aside to get geared back up for the students’ return. At the OK Corral, we’re beginning new units in reading, writing, and science. We’re also getting a new Intern.
As I prepared for the week, I decided to restock the supply baskets.
I made sure each basket
has two new boxes of crayons, four black pens, four ‘fix-up’ pens, three pairs of scissors, and three glue sticks.
How long do you suppose that will last?
