You’ve Done Well!

Grandpa Chalk

Grandpa gets rubbed down with chalk every time he’s sick. But, of course, he’s never too sick to come to my house.

It’s been a long week.  The first of many I’ll trek on my own.  Thank god for the kids and the students.

The students!  Yesterday at least twelve of my 12th graders came on the holiday to study permutations and combinations.  They’re such good kids and so grateful.  “Oooooh, God!” Festus yelled repeatedly, knocking his desk, “Ms. RB, you have done well for us!”  I showed them how to use the factorial button on their calculators and you would have thought it was magic.  Prince brought some problems he wanted help with and laughed uproariously when I solved them.  “She makes it so easy!  Chaaa!

Keep that good juju coming, kiddos.  You have no idea how much I need it right now.

      Thank you so much, Anna. I’m glad you’re reading! I’m still handing out goodies from your box. Never doubt that you’re improving the world in your own way, though. I don’t have the fortitude or courage to get a Ph.D. in chemistry! Remember, I abandoned even a major in it freshman year 🙂
