Testing ...

...all day today. In the book The Good Bad Boy (the "diary" of an 8th grade boy, Pompey Briggs) Pompey tries to make the case that teachers gives tests whenever they are lazy. How wrong this is, at least today. Test days are some of the most exhausting days I have at school. With the technology (and the lack of a sense of sin) today cheating is ever more innovative and widespread, so vigilance is needed. Not to mention you have to grade these things when all is said and done. One good thing about days like today-I get a lot of rosaries said while I pace the aisles monitoring the testing.

No responses to my request below-yet (or to our book deal...)

Happy me! I am now still in my 40's.

Oremus pro invicem!
