Hello again ladies!
I hope you all held your little ones a bit closer this past weekend, and cherished every moment with them. My heart is aching for those poor families in connecticut. And being a teacher of young students myself, I'm a little wary of the start of this school week. We are not allowed to discuss the tragedy here at my school (with adults or students), if a student brings it up we are to cut them off and redirect the conversation. And, of course, we are all going through our day now thinking, "if it had happened here, what would we have done?" My morning duty post puts me in direct peril if something like that were to occur here - my job is to stop any visitors from entering or to send them to the office, as well as admitting late arriving students. Also, all our hiding spots/safe havens have been widely publisized on the news, which means they are no longer safe havens for future events.
How's the holdiay shopping and wrapping going? I still don't have all that I needed to get, but what I have will have to do since I have no time to go get anything else.
