Tales out of School

Every once in a while, DW comes home with a story from school. Yesterday was one of those days.

A test was given, and one of the questions was "Bessie says there are more ounces in a ton than pounds. True or false, explain."

One child answered, "True. I know because Bessie is an A+ student."

Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day is coming up, and it always brings out the romantic in me.

A love song

If I could write a song for you, this is what I’d say,
I’d tell you how a glimpse of you can take my breath away.
To have you wake beside me, at the dawning of each day,
I’d say I love you.

The easy way you laugh out loud while watching children play,
The rhythm of you breathing when your dreams take you away
The color of your eyes is like the seas off St. Tropez,
I’d say I love you.

I know it’s all been said before, a thousand different ways,
In a million different stories, or songs or even plays.
I don’t care if it sounds trite, don’t care that it’s cliché,
I’d say I love you.
