I can't believe I've babbled on here for 98 posts! Yikes.
Went out to see Denali on Thursday. The swelling is going down, but still not enough for me to be convinced she won't freak out with the girth on. I'm thinking bare back riding? She's so tall that I have 0 grace when I try to get on her. Even with the mounting block. I'm 6ft tall, so it's not as if I'm short. She's only 16hh, so obviously I'm the problem. Lol.
Denali is in heat this week which, for some reason I don't understand, makes her EXTRA obsessed with me. Even if there is food around, she follows me ANYWHERE. It's cute, and very odd at the same time.
This was my first week back at work. Things were crazy to say the least. I went from teaching EBD (Severe Emotional/Behavior Disabilities) at the middle school lever to working with 1st, 2nd, and 3rd graders. They are SO SO SO cute! I hate little kids (it works out because Denali does too!) There is just something about these little guys though! Adorable. One problem I do have is laughing. Never laugh if a kids doing something that they shouldn't be doing, but it's so hard when a kid is FREAKING OUT because he can't be line leader!!
I'll probably post some of my favoriate quotes on here that my kids say. My favoriate from middle school was the following conversation:
"What's a virgin?" asked student
"Why do you ask?"I said.
"Because one of the kids in PE asked a girl if she was a virgin and she said no (WPB back in, probably the truth! Sad) then he asked me and I said, no I'm on the basketball team."
Needless to say, I fell out of my chair laughing after he left.
Poor kid. I didn't want to expalin to him what a virgin was. I wrote a note home to dad. :)
