Here is Mrs. G. and Benjamin-he is looking forward to Kindergarten, just not all "of that work and concentrating!" UhOh!
Here is Luke with Mrs. W. and Mrs. B-He's pumped about K4. I think!?!
Can someone please explain to me why in the world these two little darlings ABSOLUTELY lost it by 11:30 today(okay, truthfully earlier, but I can't remember the exact time)? I mean people, you see these faces...I am the first to admit they can certainly disobey, and do, but REALLY today what happened was beyond me. I EVEN cried when I got in the car. They felt terrible and they should. These little people carry our name. They really began to act like the little jungle animals that we have decorating our school. Let me just say around 11:45 L. was under a table in my room crying and B. was doing a handstand in the hall with his FEET on the WALL! That was after he tried to kill a spider for "us" with the bottom of a swing. Here's what happened- I was welcoming my new students and glanced outside the window and saw my son hitting the glass door with a swing seat. Where in the world did a swing seat come from? I had to take a serious double take-oh yeah, it was what I thought. Thank goodness for my Mrs. Owens who came to my rescue. By the way, HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you dear friend! She can take it all in stride with these boys. In fact, I think she laughs to herself about it. So, after crying, they felt terrible, which is what I wanted. Now, I don't guilt them usually, but this time they had gone too far-they needed to know they upset me. They apologized, got some "correction" at home and we're hoping for a better day tomorrow. For the love of humanity and this weary mother/teacher it better be...
P.S. Boys, if you ever read this, I do love you dearly. You enjoyed getting to meet your teachers today. Oh yes, watch out: what goes around comes around! I might just get under the lunch table when you're in High School and cry. :) Or go easy on you and just do hand stands in the Frat. House! HEEHEE!!! I do love you so much, no matter what!
