Boy to girl next to him: "You want to get married?"
Girl: "Yeah...don't you?"
Boy: "Well, if I'm rich I guess I could. I think that's the only way it would work out."
Happy wife, happy life. He's apparently caught on. :)
PS - can I tell you how hands-on and fun my class could be if no standards and grading were involved? Yeah, it would rock, and I promise we'd still have/meet objectives. I feel like I have a license to be the best teacher ever right now! It's pretty fun. All those lessons I think of all year and realize I don't really have time to fit them in with "that test" are coming to life this summer. It's been a good reminder for me that balance is key, and I'm still keeping those awesome lessons in my head - I'm not fond of "teaching to the test," and I try to find ways hands-on can meet objectives frequently...even if it means paring down a project a little more than my perfectionist self prefers sometimes.
We've been focusing on Sacraments this week, and I also got a weird, stubborn urge to make sure they know the "Glory Be" at the end of two weeks. Call me a stubborn Catholic, but it seems basic to me, and I have them writing it out like nuns would. I'll try to keep that in check. I can't wait to share what we come up with next week!
