Santa Claus is much more plausible than UFOs

So in Second Grade today we read a book about a girl who saw a UFO.
So my little boy Nathan told me that this one time his friend showed him (something legit like a newspaper) where someone thought they saw a UFO but really it was......

an airplane that Santa Claus had made for his elves to travel!!!
Duh- Why didn't I think of that?
And the bodies that they thought were aliens were really elves.

O thank you Nathan! That makes much more sense now :)

Second Grade

So the other day my mom asked me about my second grade class. She said she felt like I wrote so much about my Kindegartners and I never say anything about my second graders!!! Those poor second graders, good thing they have no idea :)

I must admit I did not like my second graders as much as my kindegartners, especially at first. But as I have taught them more, they've talked to me more and I've gotten to know them I love them just as much :) But they are less cute. I still miss my Kindegartners!! And singing Tony Chestnut (maybe I should teach my 2nd graders)

But I did recieve 2 flowers today. I have so far had 2 journal entries written about me, my highest qualities are that I'm pretty and nice. And also, I gave the kids extra recess today and they told me that i was the best teacher EVER.

I'll tell you about some.

W- he was pretty shy when I first came in he wouldn't say a WORD! This week however, he's decided that he's the class clown! And I must admit that I have fallen for his little boy charm and he's hard for me to get mad at him. But the more he goofs us the easier it is to tell him to knock it off.

C - she is my special little girl who struggles staying on track and acting like a 2nd grader (she's thrown quite a few tantrums). But because of all the time that I spend working one on one with her I just love her. I do have a special bond with her and am just smiling as I write about her even though she can drive me CRAZY.

M - he's my saint. He's the smart little student who does everything right and is always sitting with arms folded, his lips zipped and just looking at me waiting. It's always fun when I get to talk to him and see his personality come out.

V&S - these are my 2 girls who are the "cool' girls and they of course have a crush on the cool boys. S stayed in from recess one day to help me and told all about how she's had a crush on a boy in our class since Kindergarten, she included some great details like his hair blowing in the wind when she met him, how she always thought of him until they had class together this year, and how she of course told him that she liked him :) haha

I'll tell about some more of my students on another post. This one is way too long without any pictures.

Miss you already

Being an auntie is the best thing EVER!! Heather and Jordan moved away to Texas and took their cutte little baby girl with them (danget!!) These are some pictures from our last Sunday dinner together before they left.

Luckily woody and I are planning to go to Vegas this next weekend cuz KhiKi and Heather are still there (they're meeting Jordan at Texas) and I'm excited
She wasn't very cooperative taking pictures but they are still pretty cute

Notice, her painted toes. I would always paint her toes when she came over for me to babysit. When someone would ask her about her toes she would say, "Amy did it!" And now she says it all the time. She just loves me and I love her :)

Woody looks silly but it's a funny picture
Her and Woody got a long pretty well too. But she likes me more and she said my name first before his :) He misses her too

A whole year long

It's been a whole year since THIS.....

On March 1, 2010 Woody had a terrible accident and broke his leg and for the next 2 months his life looked like the above. Then for six months he was on crutches. He had surgery and t hey placed a rod in his leg, so he will have his rod and his screws his whole life! MAN I cannot believe that was a year ago! IT feels shorter and longer at the same time :) Woody is just starting to play basketball again and is starting to go running. His leg is doing good his muscles still hurt when he runs and sometimes the screws bug him but overall MUCH MUCH better!

Boy am I glad that that is over with!!
