Young Love

I try not to make too many posts about school, but this is a cute one.

I have 3rd and 4th grade lunch count duty every day. All the 3rd and 4th grade students who are ordering a tray or milk if they pack, have to come up to me and I need to mark it all on a sheet.

Last Friday a little boy in 3rd grade came up to order his lunch. He had on a polo style shirt and a clip on neck tie that reached down to the middle of his tummy.

Very guietly, I leaned toward him and said, "Michael, you look so handsome today. Are you trying to impress a girl with your tie?"

He shook his head yes.

"May I ask who the lucky girl is?"

He looked around to see if anyone was within earshot, then leaned in close and with a huge smile on his face said, "Molly."

"Wow, I bet she'll notice how nice you look today."

On Monday, I saw him in the line again.

"Did the tie work?"

He shook his head, and said, "No."

This morning he had on a plain t-shirt with the clip on tie again.

"Same girl Michael?" I asked him quietly.

He grinned and said, "Yep!"

I sure hope she noticed him's hard to handle rejection in third grade!

Thanks Cindi

I live about 45 miles west of Corpus Christi.

The storm is going to the Houston area which is about 4 hours from here. We are expecting lots of rain on Saturday night, Sunday, and Monday.

Also, wearing a tie in third grade? Too cute!
