First day of school

School will be starting soon!

Last week we had our open house. I got to meet several of my students and parents. But, one particular conversation cracked me up:

Student: "Okay, Miss R, how do I sign up for Odyssey of the Mind?"
Me: "Well, I'm not running OM this year."
Student: "WHAT?! WHY NOT!?"
Me: "I'm going to graduate school and I don't have time."
Student: "Okay, where is Ms. G?" (The other teacher who ran it with me)
Me: "She went to graduate school too."
Student: "WHAT?! WHERE IS ODYSSEY OF THE MIND?!"

I did assure the student that someone would be running OM, but she totally cracked me up.
