XBox Me

Proof...

that what I'm doing is worthwhile. I had to count up the number of students we read with in this program every week to give the teachers an update. We read with 70 different kids every week, 43 of those twice a week. (Volunteer restraints have kept us from reading with all 70 kids twice a week.) 70 different kids are able to have one-on-one time with an adult, and spend at least half an hour each week learning to love reading. And all of that is because I've managed to organize a few adults to come in and read with them.

Y'know, I'm pretty damn cool sometimes.

And it's FRIDAY!! Tomorrow I'm going up to Everett to watch Debbie in her first full-contact fight (kickboxing). The girl is a black belt in at least one style of karate, the name of which I can never remember, and has been working on a couple of other styles and kickboxing for awhile as well. Tomorrow will see me cringing and hoping to heavens that I don't have to worry about whether or not she'll wake up. No padding, either, except for shin guards, mouth guards, and gloves. *sigh* Y'know, most people avoid getting into this kind of situation...

Friday, Friday, Friday Friday Fridaaaaaaaay...:)
