i love the kentucky derby. absolutely adore it. and so, even though i have been ridiculously tired all day due to our very long drive back home yesterday, i can't complain (even if i did...) it was totally worth it.
and i got to wear a beautiful hat with real flowers, sip mint julips (although this year they had new drinks in the derby glasses that were quite tasty).
so, i apologize to my co-teachers for being groggy today. i am sorry if you had to restate things a few times before i caught on. or if my reaction time to your kiddos' misbehavior was in slow motion. i pledge to get lots of sleep tonight and be back to being full of energy and excitement tomorrow.
