I have a lot to say about today but too much school paperwork to do. I just had to take one second to express my “ugh” moment of the day. This has been a long, difficult day with lots of problems and annoyances but seeing the letter from homeland security teaching my children about disaster prepardness, including the mandatory plastic sheeting and duct tape just makes me ill! It was prepared by Homeland Security and is in all of my children’s planners. It encourages children to enter this contest. Yuck! I was happy today when everyone had fun at the First Day Festival.
