One week down!

This week was really fun to spend with this new class. I really missed my kids from the last 2 years for the first few days, but I got over that quickly. This new class has so much personality, they really like to get into the "what if's," I love it for the most part until they go off on it for longer than I like, but heck they are curious. We built some solar ovens this week and cooked pizzas in them and plan to make some smores next week. I will have to get some pictures of their ovens and post them. They are really quite clever. We brought in three items that described ourselves as well and the kids really got into it. I taught them table rumbles (thank you Convergys for teaching me that one). Overall a really get introduction week with this class. I think this year will be a fun and creative year for us.

Something to be grateful for...

I am so grateful I found my purpose in life.....Serving others. I am so inspired this year and can't wait to get back into the groove with my students (AKA my kids). I love giving to them and watching them succeed. I got my test scores back this week and am so proud of my little babies from last year. They all rocked at EVERYTHING! I wish I could have another day with them to celebrate their accomplishments. I wish I could go with them to middle school and show the other teachers they will encounter the greatness they possess. I can't wait to bring out that in this year's class. I love teaching and am so happy I found where I belong. I am so content and happy with my life. I am so lucky. I am stoked to start some of my volunteering this year and bring back to the class. Look for updates and hilarious stories to come!

I had a great time with my family in Yellowstone a few weeks ago. We had tons of fun together as a family. Lots of sun, fresh air, delicious food, and time together. Here are some pictures I took with my G1 phone.
