Spring!

It's spring. I can smell it. Other clues include the snow melting and my driveway being a lake, my cat wanting to be outside sunbathing instead of inside attached to me, people smiling instead of being grumpy gus-es , and the seagulls returning to terrorize the neighborhood. 

It seems like everyone is getting married and having babies and going on amazing vacations. Of course I go on amazing vacations too, but Facebook makes me think that other people's vacations are way better. Speaking of Facebook - according to a thread on reddit and other anecdotal evidence, Facebook is for old people. Great. I finally got around to using mine and now I find out it's not cool? I gave up twitter in 2009, I don't feel interesting enough for instagram, and snapchat make me feel stupid. 

Work is fine, if both boring and busy. I hear I'm supposed to job hop more to get the real money. Still regretting not going into computer science because it wasn't cool in 2001. Maybe I should have titled this post "regrets." 

Nah.

      When my son was in kindergarten, he had a really nice 5th grade buddy. Anytime the buddy saw him walking home from school, he would say hi. Which made my son feel like the coolest person ever. It was so cute. 

      Our kids’ school had 4th and K buddies. My daughter was in 4th and my son was in K. My son’s buddy was the most spirited boy in 4th grade ( eventually kicked out of school), and my daughter’s K buddy was taller than she was. Oh my the stories that ensued that year!

      Well there are still some countries that do this but he isn't willing to travel to those countries. 

      Perhaps we should take up a donation...?

      Our school does the same. My kinders just had their first get together with their 5 the grade buddies last week. It was adorable.

      Not wanting to mix older and younger kids bugs me. In my children’s school, they have assigned buddies. Which means once a week the buddies get together in a classroom and do a project together. The buddies are often Kindergarten/5th grade, 1st/4th grade, and 2nd/3rd grade. I think it’s great for older kids to be good mentors to younger kids. And for younger kids, they learn that not all older kids are intimidating or unapproachable. 

      I think districts do it for space/efficiency purposes. Our local district has three K-2 schools, a 3-5 school, 6-8 middle school and 9-12 high school.
