Cami and Rosie are in the middle of an altercation. Cami came home from school this afternoon to find that one of her projects had been dismantled & she's really upset. There have been tears, yelling, & a few choice adjectives directed toward her little sister. I reminded her that she has the right to be upset & angry, but not the right to call her sister names.

Rosie came in with her "I'm sad" face on. When I asked her why, she said it is because Cami is upset with her. I told her that Cami has the right to feel the way she does, to which Rosie replied, "No, she has the wrongs."

When I collected Graham from school today, his teacher reported that Graham had provided a "classic moment."

The students had recently had an educational unit about "Money," where they created a small shop & sold crafts. After deducting expenses, they had a fair profit & today they decided what to do with those funds. The majority of their profit will be donated to a charity, but they reserved a portion to buy a movie or game for their classroom for recess periods. Graham, however, proposed that he rent out his favorite movie "Spy Kids" for a pound.
