Well, the kids are happy. They enjoyed the first day of school..
Kristen will be changing classes during the day now.. She is excited about that..
Jonah is excited about the 8th grade prom..lol
I hope and pray that all goes well this year..I'm one of those moms that just prays that they pass..lol.
Their school meals went up....... I'm sure their activity fee probably will go up too... I often wonder what happened to all that money that Mike Moore, The attorney General of Mississippi a few years ago, got from that big Tobacco settlement for our schools a few years ago????
Our schools are from like the 1950's, with duct tape keeping the window unit air conditioners inside the frame windows, that are rotting..
I grew up in Houston ,Texas where the schools were state of the art buildings, with elevators and escalators..So when I moved to Mississippi, and saw the schools that my children go to, it's like, What's up with that?
Not all the schools are like that.. The ones in the larger cities, have the newest buildings..
I know that we pay taxes.. It's just that , with our superintendents making $130,000 a year, you would think that more money would go to the schools... And get this.. Our one county, has 2 school districts.. Oh, I get mad every year.. I 'll stop the rant now...
I hope all of you have a wonderful week.. I just want my kids to be happy.. Hopefully, this year will be a very happy one for them...
Bunches of hugs......
