    Just packing up my room now (we're all moving classrooms, since our 6th grade is pulling out to the new intermediate school). Got some more packing to do today, a meeting tomrorow morning, and then thursday when my buddy's school gets done, we plan on being very loaded and watching some soccer by 1pm. :-D

    I dunno, but I'd surely like it right about now. Maybe Chase can get us one in time for Toby's last day of class. :?

    Back to the old grind here...... (sigh)

    Hey, I'll be thinking about you all flipping me off when...hey in fact, I think I'll call getting flipped off the 'beer salute' from now on, because that's what I'll be having when I think about you flipping me off. :mrgreen:

    Hang in there Tobe...your countdown has begun!!

    So manda, pardon my american ignorance, but are you guys on the same type of calendar we are--roughly 9 months on, 3 off? If so, when is your big break?

    I've always been curious about school years in other parts of the world.

    Term 1: Late Jan - April(Easter) 1-2 weeks
    Term 2: April/May- July (mid yr break) 2 weeks
    Term 3: July- October 2 week break
    Term 4: October- late December (which is summer and Xmas) 6 weeks

    We actually work it with the calendar year lol

    Basically 10/11 week terms. Its only the beginning of Week 5 at present Ho hum...

    Ohhh, yeah, you guys go year-round. Has it always been that way in Australia? There's a growing push in some areas in the states to go year-round. Some love it, some hate it. Personally I would hate going year-round. I really need that big chunk of down-time to recharge. I'd get burnt out in a couple of years without summer vacation.

    You teachers make me sick... :roll: :wink:

    Two or three months off (for most of you)...every year!!! Do you get paid for that time? I know teachers here do.

    Try getting a regular job. I'll soon be getting three weeks vacation per year and it will be years until I can reach the 4 week vacation level. This only goes on for...oh 38 more years or so. :shock:

    Boy...that's depressing to think about
