I just need to vent. The crazy 8 are really starting to get under my skin.

It started before I even saw them today. I went out to pick them up on the playground where all the classes line up before school, and three boys were literally screaming and running the opposite direction of all the other kids in the school. When I got them inside, I had to start off my day reaming them.

They ended up spending almost the entire day working in silence and independently. I hate to do that, but I cannot get these kids to do anything together without bickering and fighting and tattling. When it's quiet it's peaceful and we are learning.

Admittedly, I was really tired, but right now I just have to think about my job day by day. If I think of the months I have left, it is going to drive me crazy! Last year, I told you all how I didn't want to give up my class because of their sweet personalities. This year I can't wait to pass on my class because of their bad bad temperaments.

I'm right with you. I have the insane 11. It is a day to day struggle. I have never had to struggle through every week like I have had to do this year.

Hang in there. Next fall is a whole new term.
