Now from Italy-pics!

The first day in Italy was Wednesday. We went to the Colosseum, The Roman Forum, Spanish Steps and Trevi Fountain. We had a super good meal at a nice restaurant, and enjoyed a lot of people watching. I had also been fascinated by the Colosseum from art history class and movies, so it this was one of the highlights of the trip!
Metro was SO PACKED at rush hour! Sweet graffiti too!

More from Spain

We blew out our power cord for our computer, so this may be the last post before we come home...down to 26% on the battery.

The Crystal Palace at the gardens...almost like a greenhouse on the inside
The Royal Gardens

Enjoying Spanish ice cream

More gardens, but in a train station. What a cool concept!
The Prado Museum, The Third of May by Goya. So cool to see in person, it's a lot bigger than expected.
Great day of museum and park. Bummer on the computer though. Tomorrow-ITALY!!

Revenge, a year later

So, back in April of last year, my co-worker Knox did this to my car. Blog entry if you click here.

It took me a year to get revenge, only because he was constantly waiting for it. April Fools Day was that special day.

So many kids wanted to help, so I got my National Art Honor Society and my 7th block to help me. We wrapped every item on his desk and his whole desk with 3 rolls of Saran Wrap!! His class was in the other room, I told HIS class to not let him come into my room (where HIS desk is). So I would say about 50 kids were in on it, and NO ONE leaked!

Wrapped the desk, when he finally got to his computer under the wrapping, I had made a screen grab of a our grading website, and made it a desktop wallpaper, so when he kept clicking on it, nothing worked.
Little that he knew today, but I also put old hole punched circles at the top of his projector screen, so when he pulls down the screen, he will be showered with confetti!!
Here are some pictures from the great event:
The kids getting their picture taken after all of their hard work!

It took him 25 minutes to unwrap...he was impressed I got him!
