Good day at school

Today was a traditional Monday morning... Me running around crazy wishing I had stayed later Friday afternoon. Hahah you would think I would learn my lesson... I never do! But my turned out to be great and I left school with my common thought of "man I have the best job ever!"  I truly am grateful that I am able to have that thought. So here are some goodies from today:

This girl sneezed...... And farted! It took a lot of self control on my part to not laugh and to continue on as if nothing had happened.  Don't worry I was giggling in my head.

One of my co-workers had a death in the family so my kids made her cards today. One little boy made the sweetest card on the planet.  It had a big smiley face on the front and on the back it said
"Be happy. Don't be sad. It's ok. It's a nice day outside. Smile. Play with your children. It'll be ok".
My heart. Melted.

We had a WONDERFUL math lesson filled with TONS of talking from my students! Love! I heard lots of
"I disagree with your answer"
"How did you do it."
"That doesn't make sense"
It truly is an accomplishment to get the kids to talk about their thinking

And of course B had many humorous moments today. My new favorite technique with him is if he interrupts me he is not allowed to ever tell me that story, he can't raise his hand to tell it, wait until I'm done talking to tell me.. Once he interrupts the story is gone! So his stories are precious and he is getting better at interrupting me ;)

Anyways I love them. They make me happy and they make the long hours at school and at home worth it :)

Feel free to be jealous of my job......... Or grateful you don't have to do it. However it works :)
