Are You A Pooper, Scooper or a Pointer?

For those of you wondering what the heck I am talking about, you have never read The Dog Poop Initiative by Kirk Weisler!  Which is my  Friday Book I LOVE! Click on the book to be taken to's description of the book.
The Dog Poop Initiative [Paperback]
This is a FABULOUS book that talks about 3 different types of people.  The people who cause problems, the people who see there is a problem and point it out, and the people who do something about the problem.  It is a great story for this time of school year when kids seem to randomly forget how to solve their own problems.  (Am I the only person this happened to?)
I came into work on Wednesday morning frustrated after waking up to a semi flooded living room due to a ton of rain coming down onto frozen ground.  I swear my kids have great timing because as I was in the cafeteria chatting with kids before school started one of my little girls came up to me and brought me these:

With this note attached:
Man, I am going to miss these kids next year!  I had the same kids last year when they were in kindergarten.  Saying good bye is going to be tough this year!


  1. I know what you mean. I was lucky enough to move from kinder to first this year with a fantastic group of kids. I have joked I'd like to teach them clear through high school and retire when they graduate!
