You know you want to read this...even if you think the word "turds" is inappropriate.

Plus, the star of the show is none other than Little J.

Ah, Little J...haven't heard from him in awhile, huh?

I'm reading the book "The Willoughbys" by Lois Lowry to the kids. They are LOVING's just hysterical...about these kids who are trying to get rid of their parents and the parents are trying to get rid of their kids.

So yesterday in the book the parents went on vacation and hired a nanny, who talks about the kids eating raisins in their oatmeal. The oldest child says, "Raisins are turds!"

Little J came up to me privately after we finished reading it and said, "You know Mrs. Overman, I always thought meatballs were turds."

That's so cute. In my head, raisins are bugs, so I still won't eat them!

Just want to say "Hi". I found your blog while doing a search for teacher blogs. Your stories are so cute and funny. Its refreshing to get a different side of the teaching spectrum.
