Preschool Halloween Show

Really, there are no words for this video...
But I can't help a quick intro...
Today was the girls very first preschool show complete with songs and everything.
It lasted about 7 minutes and was darling...
Olivia's Rapunzel hair was the funniest thing I've ever seen...
omg.

 Told that little man he's my very favorite first grader...

Things are going really well in first grade for the most part.

Stars

Our little Stars in their "Stars Class" headband


Schools...

I love, love, love our school district.
I've honestly really been very impressed.
From the teaching staff to the extra reading help Sam's been getting to the aftercare situation.
It really is top notch.
There is one thing, however, I crack up at every time...
Thank goodness it has nothing to do with curriculum or instruction...
Yep...at the bottom left is Addie's tooth.  
True story.
And Sam has had a few come home like this.
It's hilarious.
Gone are the days of the tooth necklaces around here...
Plastic bag or envelopes with "biohazard" written on it in our town.
You know that's because some crazy parent freaked out one day...

We still have tooth necklaces in the school where I teach.  But I'll keep you updated when the crazies turn on us and I'm doing the same thing...
#itwillhappen
guaranteed

Book Review...

It's really amazing when I finish any book that's not a picture book.
I mean, I read like 15ish picture books a day (at least) when you count books at school, in reading groups, or in the car, and at bedtime times four kids...

So when I finish a book that's actually NOT a picture book or a professional read...
It's worth blogging about...
Especially since I've read some dang good ones lately.

My neighbor Cindy loaned me this one.
It's amazing and gritty and everything 
You should absolutely check it out.
Even if it takes you 3 months to read like me.

Best.news.ever (again)

It is probably not news to you because of facebook and the time I've waited to ensure they could share the news themselves...but I do know a few friends that might not have heard...
and....
This photo is when Michelle and Steve told us they were 
MOVING HOME!
Officially.
Steve got a new job and we are OVER.the.MOON!
We can't wait!
Welcome home little sis...

Did I mention she might be moving really, really close to us!?!?
It's like the lottery
only better!

Baby Expert

Sam is a self-proclaimed "baby expert"
According to his cousin Christina, she agrees...
 She backed her bottom right up onto Sam's lap.  It was so cute!

Eliza on volcanoes...

Eliza looooooooves volcanoes. 
 It's hilarious and bizarre but she does.  
She reads volcano books.
She looks at photos of volcanoes.

This is the bunny she made with Miss Lori.  
She colored him read and named him...
Hot Lava!
