Met My New Batch of Babies Today




Top Ten Reasons to Become a Preschool Teacher
1. Cute little children......cute little paycheck.
2. Confidence that you will nenver, ever forget to count to 10.
3. Attention span.......Do they have one?
4. Shoes that untie themselves.
5. Get to sing your favorite songs; over and over, and over.
6. With all this bending, who needs aerobics?
7. Play, play, play.
8. Classroom art displayed in kitchen "galleries".
9. Small hands......LARGE crayons.
10. You alone make little ones count.

It was "meet the teacher" day @ playschool this morning. Margaret & I met all 8 of our new classmates: Holden, Camila, a little boy named Jeries but they call him JuJu, Anderson, Meredith (she walked into our classroom wearing a tank top and a tutu and promptly took off her shoes), Grace, Hunter, and Ava Clare. 4 girls, 4 boys.
This is our 4th year teaching at Prince of Peace (Pinch of Peas as Kendall used to call it when she attended pre-school there) but this is the first time we've ever started the year off with 8 kids. Our first year, we had 2 little boys. Their parents loved it! They were getting one on one attention. Anyway, really looking foward to starting classes next week. Should be a really cute class.

We had a good rain last night and it cooled things down a bit. It's still hot, low 90's today, but not the triple digits we had been experiencing. A little humid today. I came across this quote today and thought it was appropriate for the last couple of days. I like all types of weather, I just can't take the relentless heat and humidity.

"Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather." -- John Ruskin
