Aggie - I know what you mean about being a positive influence.

I was always the room mom at school, the girl scout leader, etc. I never really thought I was doing anything much but helping out. Then when my daughter was a senior at high school, I was walking down the hall of the school, and I kept hearing grown kids saying hello to me. I didn't even recognize them, but they were the kids that I had helped out with when they were small and growing up. There was so many of them, and it was only then years later that I realized I had meant something to the kids. My eyes started welling up. I felt like Mr. Chips in that old movie Goodbye Mr. Chips.

Worked all day Thursday -- got the summer school testing completed, then got on a roll -- I got all the data entered, scored and the data set built so it will be a snap to turn around the reports,.

Today is the dentist this morning and the wedding of a former student this after noon. I am looking forward to the wedding. I taught all the kids in the family and they are great. Their parents immigrated from Ecuador and have worked their behinds off to become US citizens and make a good life for their kids. When the oldest started Kindergarten, Mom came with him and asked to stay to improve her English skills. They also instituted "homework time" at home -- the whole family (parents too) would sit at the kitchen table after dinner and do their homework or read until everyone finished. Her plan even spread to a couple of other families in the neighborhood. The young man that got married yesterday will graduate next spring with a degrees in Spanish and Math, the brother will is working on his degree in Economics, and the two kids that grew up next door will soon finish degrees in Mechanical Engineering and Micro-Biology. It is amazing the difference and positive influence one pair of determined parents can make not only in their children's lives, but in the lives of their kids friends.

I didn't have any time to post today either! Or yesterday - didn't even realize we were missing threads because I hadn't even checked my email. I left work with all my weird loose ends, odd tasks, and bits and pieces of work done and cleaned off my desk. Came home to a few necessary desk chores, and then had leftovers for dinner.

Got hooked into another TV show last night ("Airplane Repo" - wow!! LOL) and tonight I AM going to bed on time! Really. I need sleep bad.

Maw, I'm gonna do the happy dance when I get home tomorrow and check in to see that you've got a new fridge!

Hardly had time to post today! Was there really no Thursday thread either? Yikes! We're slacking!

What? No Thursday thread? And it's only just barely still Friday! Hope you had a couple of good days, anyway.
