It was particularly noisy during literacy centers Friday morning and I admonished my group, “Boys and girls, you need to start working. And please keep it down to a dull roar- or bad things will happen! And you know what I mean when I say that bad things will happen, right?"
“YEAH!” Jack shouted, “All HELL will break loose!”

“All HELL break loose is what I said!” and he smiled his toothless smile.
“Um. That wasn’t exactly how I was going to say it…but…”
Lord Have Mercy.
