Spring weather...

Today is so beautiful! little p and I planted some bulbs and then cleaned out our outside closet (off of our back porch- I use it as a dry goods pantry). Now it's time for some lunch!

First day subbing- the specialist that comes into the class to help the student's with learning difficulties ended up sending one of the students to security (that's what they call it- security). And, I guess that was the straw that broke the camel's back because he ended up suspended. I actually was helping other student's when the "incident" happened and didn't see it. Other than that, pretty typical middle school "we have a sub" behavior. Nothing I couldn't handle:) Thanks for your prayers and well wishes. I have a wonderful group of internet friends (some I know in real life and some I hope to meet in the future)!

Say a little prayer for me...

tomorrow. At some point in my life I acquired a master's degree in education and am licensed to teach middle school and high school social studies. I am no longer babysitting so have decided to dust off the old chalk and eraser and will be heading out tomorrow for my first sub job in a few years! Hopefully I want to take the necessary classes to re-instate my teaching license (I have a sub license) and someday teach...

Positive Peer Pressure...

Conversation with Big P on the drive home from school...

Mommy, Noah makes his own lunch for school. When we get home can I make my own lunch, too?

Uhm, sure. The whole lunch?

Yes, the whole lunch. You just cut the crust off the bread, I will do the rest.

Ok then.

And he did... make his whole lunch. And I cut off the crust of his bread (he has helped me in the past, this time he did it all).
