Sometimes, isn’t a verbal thank you enough?
Today the big event was the parent appreciation. This was to be pared down this year, to the relief of the teachers, until a certain person got ahold of it and blew it up again:(. It turned out fine- coffee, tea, coffee, donuts, a card from the children, a card with chocolates, a slide show, a school song and then a twenty minute open house. In talking with several parents it became clear we are all on the same wave length- the parents put on a teacher appreciation and then we put on a parent appreciation… what sane adult needs two more things on their calendar at the end of the school year???? Wouldn’t saying thank you be enough????
Otherwise it was a quiet day with doing a story elements lesson on problem and solution with the book Cinderella (I always read the Disney one from my childhood for nostalgic reasons), a lesson and fun sheet on probability, dodgeball and computers.
Nothing exciting, but we all survived:)
The mission was for forty minutes today so I just walked it to give my knees a break. It was a lovely day for a walk, though I was happy for my sweatshirt!
I ran out tonight to the library and to grab some groceries. Can you believe the library has a limit of 25 checkouts?!?! Ugh I had to use my mom’s card for the rest of my books! That’s was the treat- having my mom along for company:). Even doing simple errands is more fun with her for company, though she had to listen to me vent about work way too much. Oh well, Saturday will be our fun shopping day:)
I watched the Hallmark movie, The Mechanics of Love last night.
I really liked it!!! In fact, I’d like a guy just like Tyler in this movie please😛. It was nice to see a woman have a non traditional job in this movie:)
Otherwise, I’ve been spending every second reading Carnegie’s Maid to try and finish it as it has to be returned to the library tomorrow. I have 87 pages to go and a lot of incentive in all the books I brought home from the library!
