"I'm already edgicaded." Best line of poetry ever... Reminds me of when I was in like 3rd grade and I thought it was totally logical that I could stop school right then and teach 2nd grade when I grew up...after all, a 3rd grader already knows everything that they teach in 2nd grade, right?!
And just another note on the poem...I hope she writes something much different at the end of next year since I'm going to be her teacher! Yes, we are enrolling our kids in the Ohio Virtual Academy and we feel awesome about our decision. I am excited to see what the next school year will hold. This summer I have lots to do to get our school room (currently our dining room) ready and for us to get in the right moods to learn at home, but I think it's going to be fun to get the kids involved in the whole process.
On a totally different note, I do have a couple more photos to share, but I didn't take them this week. I'm a total cheater...bad teacher. I took these last week but completely forgot to post them. They are of these awesome flowers in our neighbor's backyard. I don't remember seeing them last year, and they completely have me intrigued. They look just like candy corn! And they are changing every day. They sort of open at the bottom and then shrivel as they bloom upwards. Very strange...not at all like your traditional flower. I tried to google and see what they are called, but all I could find were a couple other photos of them also being called "candy corn flowers". And there are lots of other flowers that look like candy corn too. Who knew?
If you happen to know the real name of these flowers, please leave a comment and let me know!
Have a great weekend!!
