Yesterday I had big plans to make my new January calendar numbers during the kids PE time (planning time). Well I made the mistake of going down to the office (after I had gotten distracted and made new name tags for their desks). At this point the secretary comes into the work room and informs me that I have a new student being enrolled "right now, do you want to meet him?" Of course I wanted to meet him! Turns out he moved to the town of my school from the town that I live in! I actually knew who his mom was. He seemed to be a very quiet little guy but he also seemed very excited to be coming. Not nearly as excited as the class was when I told them! And they said "Hey we know what to do when there is a new kid! We have to be nice and help them out so they know what to do! Just like the book said!" (I am not even making this up. My kids actually said this! I was so so so excited!)
Today we started the day with inside recess (which continued ALL day! Can you say restless!). This actually worked out ok though as it made it easier for me to
B:I LOVE Justin Bieber!
A: He is so cute! He is a pop star!
And I am currently forgetting the rest-even after I repeated it about 100 times in my head on my drive home today.
Other funny for the day. New little guy raises his hand during story time. I finish the story and ask him what his question was. He says, "It's not a question it's a wish." I say, "You have to keep wishes secret so that they will come true." Him, "I'm going to tell this one to everyone." Me: "ok..." Him, "We wish you a Merry CHristmas, We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New year." Oh how I love the Kindergarten mind.
Oh and yesterday one little girl whispers in my ear "Why don't you ever teach us about Jesus?" I have to say this question left me a little bit speechless. My response, "There is a law that says I'm not supposed to. Why don't you ask your mom about it." She says, "Well I went to Sunday school but only two times but I was in a play....etc. (she acted out her whole part)"
So how has your week been? Any especially interesting stories? Anyone else feeling like it has been AGES since winter break?
On the super exciting side I'm going car shopping this weekend! Suggestions? (I drive about 100 miles a day, need room in the back-not the seat-for a 75 pound dog. And I would like to have four wheel drive, and sit a little higher up.)
Happy hump day (Wednesday)!
