Who's Counting?

We are!!!

Jake has about 3 weeks of school left and I couldnt be happier. The poor baby has had such a hard time this year. He has had the teacher from HELL. This lady calls the kids names, yells at them all the time and makes their lives a living hell. I know that is what she has done for us this year. I have cuddled and wiped more tears this year because of this lady. I have spoken to her about it and of course "Jake is over reacting" is what she says. And when I confronted her about the name calling, it was her word against 8 year olds. I have went to speak to the principal twice and still....NOTHING. She treats them like they are Seniors in HS. Jake is scared to death every day before he leaves for school. If I dont sign something that is in his folder for some reason, he has to sit out of P.E. It is just insane. And the homework, it is torture. We sit down and do homework for an hour to an hour and a half each night. That is just way too much for a 2nd grader. It cant be over with soon enough!!!

As for this summer, we have so many fun things planned. We are buying season passes for the water park near our house. We love this place. We went for the first time last year and it is a blast. We have a few trips planned for Atlanta. Michaels Aunt and Uncle live there and we will visit them as well as go to a Braves game and Six Flags. And of course the beach trip. A week in water and sand with no worries, no cares and non stop fun! I CANT WAIT!!!!


  1. oh sorry to hear that for your kid. next year, i hope and i wish she will not be his teacher again, poor kid,what a trauma for him.

  2. That really sucks that his teacher is like that. I remember my 4th grade teacher was the worst ever and she sounds similar to this one. At least it is almost over and by the end of summer you all will have forgotten about her.
