That's Not Good

I'm here sitting across with Lee and Husbandman.  Seriously!  Isn't that crazy?  I'm sitting in their living room with my feet on their couch and drinking their coffee.  Yesterday, I went to Thirdlandia with Dr. H., and I'm so flipping serious: It's every bit as fabulous as I imagined it to be.

There was singing, there were lit circles, there were multi-paragraph essays written by every single 8 year-old in the classroom.  There was this genius system for readers' workshop where the kids had choices and accountability.  Basically, Thirdlandia's population is sublime.  I recommend this place heartily.

I tried to help a little in there, but I was pretty useless.  One thing I tried to do was coach a little guy on not sneezing so disruptively, but he said, "I cannot do that."

Oh, well.  That's why we leave things to the experts.

I beg to differ.

You set up blogs for all the Thirdlanders.
You supported the moves of all Thirdlanders throughout the day, and my moves as well. Which I really needed.
You taught about the sneezing and there will be follow up lessons next week.
You saved a child's life with the peanut allergy thing.

I guess you can all see why right now I'm on my knees, begging to differ.

I'm certain that they felt blessed to have you in the room.

I can't tell you how excited I am to learn that you have been in Thirdlandia! At this very moment I am pretending that I'm there, too. This news has just made my day.
