(Yup..."Dozer 18" is my son!) I know, I know, the flat screen TV doesn't really fit into the theme of the house, but it shows a movie put together about the former occupants. And, the lady in blue was Carson's 2nd grade teacher. She retired the year she had him in class. She's one of those amazing teachers who really ignite the fire of learning. And, she treats each and every kid like they are her all time favorite former student. (She even had one of the dads along in her class waaaaay back when he was in 2nd grade!) I'm sad that Elise won't get the chance to have her as a teacher.
Carson's teacher had to divide his class into 2 groups for the tour. For some unknown reason, he broke them right down the line by gender. Boys in one group, girls in the other. And he went with the girl group. Yeah, imagine a group of 10 year old boys in a setting where they can't touch anything and antsy because it's the end of the school year. I almost ran away when I realized they were going to give the boys a chance to play with pretend guns!
