school's out for summer!

Where's Alice Cooper when you need him? Although that's not a very nice song now, is it? Our schools are still standing and will hopefully be there when the kids go back in August.

Report cards were fair to middling. No one was sent to the dungeon, however there is certainly room for improvement. Just imagine how much they're going to forget over the course of six weeks. The mind boggles.

I'm feeling somewhat better today but still a bit peaky. Just too damn hot to do anything productive.

Tonight we're hoping to dust off the telescope and perhaps catch a glimpse of the Space Shuttle Discovery which as far as I can gather they are planning to launch shortly before 10 p.m. CET. Looks like the skies will be clear so we may have a chance. I love all this space stuff. The solar eclipse that occurred here several years ago was completely awe-inspiring and we got to watch it right from our own garden with our special eclipse glasses on. Very cool.

**update** 8:15 p.m. - Looks like no space shuttle tonight. Darn.

one of my professors in college was called Alice Cooper.
She was lovely, though.

Who's Alice Cooper (okay, don't answer me, I'll go google it myself ;p ) BTW, thanks for Blogrolling me!

Wouldn't it be wonderful to still be young enough to not know who Alice Cooper is? :-)

The School's Out album came out in 1972.

Being a teacher, I have to ask how the boys did in English.

Hi Mr. Haddock! So nice of you to drop by!

Hi J - well, Boy12 got a 1 last term but only a 2 this term because he messed up on a couple of tests. His spoken English and reading comprehension are very good, but he has a bit of trouble with spelling and that's where he gets points taken off. Boy9's school doesn't start giving marks in English until grade 4 (seeing as they only start in grade 3) so he only got a "participated successfully" comment. We'll see how he does after the holidays.
