I don't even want to think about how it will be once Meagan starts playing kickball and Garrett starts with soccer, and we start tutoring after school and I start coaching DI. My head hurts just thinking about it. If if would only cool off a little, life would be so much easier. It was over 100 degrees here the last two or three days!
We finally got a new kinder teacher so Garrett is now in a class with only 21 other kids. He told me today that this (holding up his hand in the stop sign) was a period. I asked him when you use a period and he said during Writer's Workshop. Not bad for the second week of kinder I say!
A funny while I'm thinking/writing about Garrett. After the first day of school Jimmy asked him how it went and if he learned anything. His response was Yep, I learned I still can't read. (said in an Eyore voice) I about died laughing when Jimmy told me that!
I am working on a few new posts. One is about testing and another is on some new reading lessons that I am using this year. Be on the lookout for them!
Just for fun I thought I would post some older pictures.
This is the picture of a mural that my friend Elaine painted for me. The parents and kids LOVED it. (The wall is now painted a deep blue color.)
Santa always visits our school on the last day before winter break. All of the kids go up on stage and get a candy cane from him. We have a sing-along in the cafeteria either before or after Santa visits.
This is Garrett. This picture was taken at Jimmy's surprise 30th birthday party. Garrett is a little over 2. He thinks he is so cool talking into, my niece's phone and wearing her sunglasses!
