An audible voice emerging from what had been a hushed conversation between two boys:

"No, you cannot get scoliosis by falling off a bridge onto a parked car!"

Soaking It All Up

It seems my 4th graders are reaching that age where they become much more attuned to matters of style and fashion. This morning one of my girls gestured to the skirt I was wearing and exclaimed (correctly):

"You've never worn THAT skirt before!"

Surprised at her having noticed this, I looked up at her and smiled, "Wow, Kendra! You noticed that?"

"Yes. I'm very absorbent when it comes to my teachers!"
