"Stank on my shoe"

Ok, so it seems that I am often asked what stories I have from working with the kids at my school. I know from experience that working with children in any setting, but especially within the school setting can be rewarding and funny. Most of the time when asked about funny stories I forget them, however last week at school one of my kids made a comment about another referring to him as the "stank on my shoe". This is from a 1st grader, keep in mind. I'm not sure how his peer ended up being the stank on his shoe but one could only wonder. When I asked him about what being the stank on his shoe referred to his response was simple, "you know when you can't get rid of someone". Sure, I know exactly what he means?!?!?! Silly Mrs. Haffey!

Messing around with photo placement

To be honest this is not where  I wanted this photo to be. However, I am not entirely sure how to move it up where I want it ?!?!?!?!

Question of the week...

Ok, So I am starting a question of the week. To begin this may seem to be a rhetorical question, although not necessary meant to be, but with lack of responses it could be considered one. (No pressure my faithful followers)

So on to the question of the week...How personal is too personal when blogging? Examples are welcomed.

Blogging 101

After spending way too much time setting my background and messing around with the settings, I'd say it’s about time that I write something, after all this is a blog site. Blogging as explained by Wikipedia is an internet dairy for the whole world to see, with added daily entries about the person’s life (that person would be me, in this case).

So today, I become interesting...so much so that everyone...like my two faithful followers will begin their days with my personal blog. Enjoy!
