Coffee and Chocolate...and Leaves

My 3rd period class is my favorite class. They are fun, cheerful, hard-working, and sweet. There are several girls who are friends in there. They are cheerleader types, but in a good way....perky, consistently cheerful, and just fun. Today, one of the girls came into class MUCH perkier than usual. In fact, she was bouncing off the walls - practically vibrating with energy. She was so bouncy that several of the kids asked if she was tweaking (on meth - a big problem here in the northwest). She was definitely not tweaking, just hyper, but REALLY hyper. She was vibrating so much she couldn't even write in a straight line and definitely couldn't sit still. I finally asked her what was up. It turns out, she tried coffee for the first time today...and not just coffee, but a DOUBLE SHOT WHITE CHOCOLATE MOCHACHINO.

In other news....here are some pictures for you...

A ghosty leaf...photo not retouched at all.....

These are played with a little.....=) But only with online photoshop, nothing special.

Your photos are absolutely gorgeous.

Sounds like Miss Cheerleader should never have coffee before coming to class.

She should never have coffee EVER. She was like the little squirrel in the movie Over the Hedge.
