While most every other Portland area school shut its doors today, our kids are being troopers, like most of the nation and headed for the bus. Except we are 40 degree rainy weather big crybabies, so I've seen my share of drama this morning, as both kids earned advanced degrees in Storm Tracker/School Closure Announcements - the esteemed STSCA, bound to be very marketable someday - studying the news ticker with steadfast fervor.
Did I mention I was the object of their scorn when their district wasn't listed? I bet you gathered as much. I did hear great murmuring directed to the lucky children of Precious Lambs Academy or Lovenest or School, something about Precious Lambs are stupid and who would want to be a dumb lamb, sure signs they shall be a delight in class today.
So, I'm off to finish a few errands and then to the school to deliver cakes and volunteer and to shoot stern motherly glances at my children if they dare take up complaining again.
