I made it

Today was the last day of school. The rowdy boys wore me out but I made it. I had 6 sweet and lovely girls and 15 boys ( 9 who were handfuls and they fed of each other). My class this year has been a lot of fun and very entertaining. It will be nice to see my students next year (I'm looking forward to it) and it will be even better knowing they now belong to another teacher.

Next years 1st grade class is small and they are so friendly, calm, and sweet (they wave and try to hug us). I cannot wait!

I Can Do It!

I love 1st graders! Mostly because the kids crack me up.

I was putting together my students writing folders. I came across one of the district writing samples that we have.

Their promt was to write about going to the park.

One of my boys wrote.

My mom can do it.
My grandma can do it.
My dad can do it.
He can do it.

2-weeks Ago

Was the week of weird things being said to me.

I was talking to some teachers at work after our school carnival. One asked me if I was a lesbian after I said I wasn't really interested in dating men.

And a guy on a dating site wrote me and told me I was getting kinda of old to have kids. That I'm more at risk for having a kid with downs.

I'd like to think that there is a guy out there for me, you know one that wants to be with a lesbian that's going to have a downs baby! ;-)

Keeping The Sun Out

When I got home from work on Friday. I came out to the back yard to water the flowers. And I got the urge to wash all the screens and sunscreens. Although my house is small I've got 12 windows. It took awhile to get them washed, dried, popped, or clipped into place. I didn't start out planning on doing the whole house. All the screens and shades where in the garage leaded against the wall and I didn't really know what was out.

One of the biggest windows is my bedroom window. So I found the big sunshades and pulled them out. I washed them. Then I took one to the window and it was way too big. I was very confused by this. After all this is my biggest window. That night I learned that they make shades for patio doors. They had to be screwed in and well I wasn't sure how they work so I put then aside and went to find smaller ones for the bedroom.

I figured out the bedroom windows. And from there I was able to narrow down what went there. I just kept narrowing down sizes and what went where until they were all up. Now I know that I have 6 different sized windows. A few days ago I would have said 3.
I got them all up. I didn't get then ad clean as I wanted. But my mom said they are very hard to clean.
Saturday I woke up and figured out how the sunscreens go on the sliding doors.
I am very proud of myself for doing this. Which may seem silly to most people. I just don't do stuff like this. I call my mom or dad (depending on what it is) and they do it for me. Parents always do things better! I need to grow up at some point and learn to do things on my own. It was hard work but since I got them all up correctly it feels good to have done it on my own. Mom was pretty surprised and I'd like to think she was proud of me for doing it on my own.
