Random Thoughts

I always forget how tiring the first few weeks of school are until your body gets used to getting up early and then doing something other than laying around reading and watching T.V.!

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!

Your children are absolutely adorable! I love Garrett's comment about learning that he still can't read! If only it could be taught in one day!!
