At least the longest day is over.
And although my "Longest Day" didn't involve artillery fire and machine guns... I think there should have been some big pointy sticks and gags.
I think there are reasons that the Babysitter Course is traditional grade 6 fare.
Reason 1: Grade 7 boys are more interested in doing stupid things to get the attention of the grade 7 girls sitting across the room, than in listening to someone's Mother talking at them from the front of a classroom.
Reason 2: Grade 7 girls are more easily distracted by the stupid doings of grade 7 boys than grade 6 girls are by their male counterparts.
Reason 3: Grade 7 students may just be "in it" for the money. They're not as keen on taking the course as they are on passing the course and beginning the process of milking that particular cash cow.
I'm sure there are more reasons, but I'm just tired. I don't even want to think about grade 7 boys and girls until my own particular grade 7 boy gets home from his Youth event...
At least our longest session is over, and 2 out of 3 guest speakers are done.
Did I mention that I'm tired?
Can't live with them, can't live without them.
