Well, here I am. I finally made it to my journal to make an entry. Jim left to go do the laundry. Rebecca just had a cinnamon raison bagel and now she is parked infront of the tv. She's watching a show on Mickey Mouse Play house.
The past few days it has been sunny and in the mid 80's, today it is cloudy and only suppose to go up to 67. If the rain stays away until late this afternoon we might go to Berlin Auction. I'm looking for a shelf type thingy that'll give me more storage space in kitchen and maybe even more counter space.
Well, let's see, about my week. It was a long one. 5 days at the school, 4 days homeschooling Marissa, because on friday I took her to school with Rebecca and I. Marissa loves going to school with Rebecca. We had a few mishaps in the class during the week. Boys hitting each other, one boy hit 2 girls, a girl picked another girl up who was half her size and then threw her on the floor. Then we have the cryers, who don't wanna even be in class, and there's 4 boys and 1 girl that can cry all day. Then we have the sleepers, who come to school and go to sleep as soon as they eat breakfast. Tuesday after Rebecca had violin practice, I stayed for a Home School meeting. Flyers were sent out to all the parents but only 3 of us showed up. It was all about idea's for fund raisers for the school, and how to make the school safer. I mentioned how the parents park right up on the sidewalk giving less room for the kids to walk and also how a lady backed up on sidewalk and hit me in left hip doing so. We're going to see about the city getting a No Parking sign put up. On thursday before I went back to the school I stopped at Dunkin Donuts and bought 100 donut hole munchkins for the kids. They ate everyone of them. I remember they use to be 50 for 1.99, now it's 50 for 5.99. But the smiles on their little faces and all the thank you Miss Cindy's I got and even some hugs too made it all worth it.
This week I have a project I am going to do with the kids. We're are going to plant marigolds in cups, and watch them grow in class, and then on mother's day the kids can make cards for their mom and take the card and flower they planted home to their mom. On wednesday while the teacher went up to copy some papers, I had the kids all sit on the rug and I read them the story, Stone Soup. They all sat so quiet and listened to the story. I have always liked that story myself. I have some pictures I want to show you, but I will do that later today in another entry.
I best get busy and do something. I read 15 journals this morning. Gonna go read a couple more and take a break for a little while. I hope everyone has a wonderful day.
