A Beautiful...Boring Memory

Skyler is in 4th grade this year. This is her teacher’s first year of teaching. She just went from being Miss Mentethe to Mrs. Robinson. Saturday Skyler, Tori and I attended her wedding.

I was having a bit of déjà vu because my first year of teaching 4th grade, I went from being Miss Baumruk to Mrs. Franzen. One Saturday in March (a long, long time ago) a number of my students attended my wedding.

I could not get a picture of Skyler and her teacher both with their eyes open at the same time so here is one of each….







And the beautiful result after lots of primping...



It made me wonder what my students thought of the whole ordeal and if they now fondly recall attending their 4th grade teacher’s wedding.

I decided to glean an answer from Skyler as she is now in their (painful, wedding) shoes.

Me: "Skyler, what did you think of the wedding?"

Skyler: "Well actually it was quite boring!"

I’d suffice to say I got my answer. I am sure as wonderful as my wedding day was for me, my students left feeling the same way….bored!

I was really surprised at Skyler's reply. Knowing Skyler I thought she would have really been into the whole scenario. Oh well, goes to show how much we really know about someome.
They are just too cute and I get such a kick out of Tori's "photo smile" that she always puts on for pictures.
