Reasons why

15 Nov

I love Lyle Lovett and you should too!

1. He played for two hours straight and then did a twenty-minute encore.  Who does that?

2. He tells really good stories.  Lyle (because we are that close), likes to tell stories about his journey to where he is today.  Almost all of the stories start off in Texas, meander their way through the United States, and end up in some “folk” theater where he’s a fish out of water.

3. He’s got awesome hair:

4. Lyle played an entirely acoustic set and still sounded amazing!

5. The “Fat Baby” song

The Sandler Center hosted Lyle and his Acoustic Group and they were great!  The Sandler Center is a smaller venue, so there really isn’t a bad seat. 

School News

Today we were going over synonyms for words.  We got to the word beautiful.  One student said:

S- Beautiful like pretty

MG – Yep, that’s right

S- Like she has a gorgeous face.  Like she’s got a good body.

MG – Okay! That’s where we are going to stop!

What the what?  He’s in fourth grade!  Who or what is he listening to? 

Every morning I pick up a first grader from the lobby and walk down with him to the room.  While I’m standing there I say good morning to different students.  I said good morning to another student that is in the first grade class I teach in:

MG – Good morning Mary!

S- It is going to be a good morning!  I can tell!

Oh to have such optimism!
