I am so not a seamstress. I am home today with Taylor and since I have lesson plans done and papers graded, she and I decided to take on a sewing project. We are doing one of those build a bear home kits. Pretty simple? No...not for a word girl. Seems I sewed the front of the right leg to the back of the left leg. Kind of a funny looking bear. I'll stick to weaving words together, thank you. I can teach my students to cut for clarity, and add a seam or two here or there where their papers are knitted a little loose. Its nice to have a day off, but I'll be glad to get back to the classroom. As for the bear, we'll hand him over to Grandma. I'm good with a pen and words. She's better with the needle and thread.
I love my job. Teaching is an art and I enjoy learning and growing along with my students. I can't think of any thing else I'd rather do.
