What is there to do in Texas?

So, this afternoon one of the fifth graders I tutor asked me if I had any plans for Spring Break next week. I told him that I was going to Texas and he said "Ohhh.... Say Hi to the Texas Chainsaw for me." 

I think I am gathering enough material to start my own TV show.

God's Hygeine

Friday, we had some pretty intense storms here in Birmingham. I have the "joy" of bus duty on Friday morning and afternoons, and the weather usually has a pretty big affect on how much "joyfulness" I usually have for this endeavor. In the afternoons, I have to stand outside and make sure kids don't run out to their cars and what not. We have a little flag, and every day I am out there, this precious l2nd grade girl always asks to come hold the flag. Of course I let her do it, because that means I don't have to do it. So we were chatting about the weather and she aksed a question that a lot of 6/7 year olds ask "Why is it raining?" My first response was very sound and educational. I told her that God just decided that the Earth was thirsty and everything needed a drink of water. She didn't really buy into that. So then I told her that God was taking a shower, and a long shower at that. She thought for a minute, and I didn't think she was going to buy this one either, and then she said "Well, why is he using cold water? He should take a hot shower!"
