Happy Birthday Adam

Adam's birthday was this week and he celebrated it with a sleepover this weekend.  Six middle school boys came over for a sleepover.  Most of them stayed up all night.  Adam was the first one asleep (he gets that from me).  They rewarded him by pegging him in the back with an aerosoft pellet the next morning. No harm done and one of the boys recorded the moment on his cell phone.  Adam is proudly wearing a small bruise on his back.  As the only female in this house, I don't always understand why they do some of the things they do.  I've learned that in the whole scheme of things this isn't something to stress over.

The best part of the sleepover was getting to watch Adam's friends.  They are great kids.  It was good to see that he has friends who are positive and fun to be around.   

Here's the group.  They were outside this morning playing at the... 

Happy Birthday Adam.  We love you.

PS. Could you please stop growing up so fast???

I love teaching middle school. I think sixth grade is the best age ever!

I am a middle school teacher and so is my husband. I taught eighth grade and he teaches grades six through eight. I moved to the high school last year. I still feel like a fish out of water.

I think it takes a special person to teach middle school.
