Morning downpour at the exact time I need to leave for work. No idea where my umbrella is.  Happy Thursday.

Update: forgot that I parked around the corner so my walk was longer than usual. Wearing heels so I couldn’t even run. There was a river by my car.

But I did locate my umbrella in the car and ended up damp not soaked!

Middle school perks. Yes, Lisa Frank is still a thing. And I actually prefer Zayn but all his stickers were gone.

Proud of SLPS students! Vashon has been off the chain since their principal left 3 weeks ago (with no explanation), according to a friend who teaches English there. But cheers to a peaceful protest! Because these kids really are getting screwed over in a lot of ways.

The article is heartbreaking.  These kids actually want an education and want to learn but are not getting the opportunity.  Their average ACT score is a 13.9.  The 55% of kids who do graduate are going to spend years in remedial classes paying to learn what they should have been taught in high school. Hopefully the district can do something to serve these students better!

My friend Maggie (a former teacher at my school) is a Pampered Chef consultant and hosts lots of parties and events.  Tonight I went to freezer meal workshop.  We all brought our own groceries, and she provided all the tools.  I made 7 meals that I am so excited to eat - Veggie Rotini, Lemon Pepper Chicken Divan, Barbecue Sloppy Joes, Beef and Veggie Stir Fry, Chicken Fajitas, Cheesy Chicken Tortilla Soup and Cherry Balsamic Pork Loins. It was a fun night and the program works - I now want to buy all the Pampered Chef tools!!

Back in STL but missing Chi already!

Not a great sports day…
