I would love to have some pumpkin pie. Or maybe a pumpkin spice latte. Let's go to starbucks.
...Well, since that doesn't seem to be working out, I'll just sit here at the computer and tell you what's been going on lately!
Mrs. Dawn is now installed as my permanent helper, instead of floating between all three classes.
The reason for this? My class has grown from 5 little monkeys to 6. The 6th is certainly a cutie.
So, this is CJ. A little apprehensive at first. Who wouldn't be? He's the smallest and youngest, and, well, to be honest, some of the other guys come across pretty strong. But he's doing really well. His favorite part of the day is snacktime (I'm with him on that one). He really opens up, given enough teddy grahams.
Owen, Jesse, and Jake were just hanging out on the playground the other day... not doing much of anything. (which was AMAZING) Mrs. Dawn said we should teach them to sit there like that and do "see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil." Perhaps I should attempt it sometime. It'd make one amazing picture.
"rawr! I'm'onna eat your camra!"Mrs. Nancy told me today that I might have another addition to my class soon. We don't know for sure, though. Guess what? Another boy. I'd say I'm getting my fair share of practice. :D
Speaking of practice, I had an opportunity to practice losing at mini golf on Saturday. A couple of us went to Stone Mountain with some of Abby's friends from church for her birthday. It was a fun little trip. We rode the skylift, played mini golf, watched a 4 -D movie thing, a parade, and the Christmas laser show. It was nice and holiday-y. Great adjective, that.
Ha! Pictures of me with my siblings! Yay!
And the kids all had a blast on the best playground EVER while I ran around snapping pictures of them. Seriously. That is the best playground. Hang the rest of the park, give me a picnic at the playground! I couldn't play on that one, because I would have gotten lots of weird looks, but nothing kept me from climbing up the little plastic rock wall, and sliding down the other side at preschool today. Not even my dress, or my new boots. Which I did wear, thankyouverymuch. How could I resist "do it wif me, Miss Caitin!" ?! Exactly.
And I really thought there was something else I was going to say, but now I don't remember what it was. I've worked on this post on and off for the past couple hours. That method doesn't work well for me. Totally derails my train of thought.
So, have a happy day, and I'll be in touch again soon. ;-)
