This fest is hosted by Jackie at Bouquet of Books and Dani at Entertaining Interests.
My favorite heroes are too many to name so I'm going to go with one childhood favorite and one recent favorite.
Peter Pan - He Can Fly! - was my favorite childhood hero. He was fun, he was clever, and he could fly. For a kid with serious flight envy, what more could I ask for?
He's willing to switch sides to look after himself, he's charming and arrogant, and devastatingly handsome. (or at least he thinks so)
My villainous late excuse: The last two days (Wednesday and Thursday) I was torturing (testing) homeschool kids for the state. I was a test proctor (for some reason the word "proctor" evokes the worst images for me). My kids tested in their grade level rooms, and I proctored tests for fifth graders. Yesterday during the math section, there were tears; it was the worst testing session I've ever experienced as a test-giver/proctor. On the upside, we had some great recess/break times - lots of Everybody's It Tag and running. A few kids said they wanted me to come back next year. I was a hero and a villain, all at once. It wasn't comfortable, but thankfully we don't have to do it again for another year.
This awesome hop is hosted by Viklit!
This week, I'm celebrating:
1. Testing is over for another year! Yay! We survived!
2. Swimming three days this week so far.
3. Testing is over! Wait, I already said that . . .but it's worth saying twice.
