Hi everyone and welcome to my world :)
One thing that I’ve noticed since starting Project Life this year is how much more positive I feel. I find myself having more and more to be grateful for and I think I notice more of the ‘little things’ now that I used to… it’s a good place to be :)
This week started off quietly but as usual it didn’t last long and then yesterday we had a big family get-together so there’s been lots of photos taken!
We’ve been doing lots of work using our imaginations in Room 4 and I have to say that kids of today are far LESS imaginative than we were as children. When I was a kid (you know you’re getting older when you say things like that!) we used to ‘make our own fun’ but most of the kids in my class are really struggling to be imaginative.
Hopefully I’ll be able to show you all a great wall display we’re working on in our class where we’ve been posing different questions and challenges like… What if the earth was a cube?
Makes you think doesn’t it!! We also had some fun on Leap Year Day… especially when they worked out that the 29th of February won’t happen again until they are all at high school!
The other night Mikayla asked if she could have a game and I thought that was fine… until she started beating my high scores!!! It turns out that I’m quite competitive about this sort of thing… and so is Mikayla!
She made mention of the fact that she’d beaten several of my scores (the game goes up in levels) to which I replied… “Well I have the ultimate power because I can just delete you!!” Not very ‘motherly’ of me is it!
I got one of the other teachers to get a couple of photos of me supervising road patrol on Friday… just another one of those interesting jobs teachers have!
I also got the cutest photo of Molly and Jack when I went to visit their Mum and Dad. Jack is all bark until he realises that it’s just Auntie Shell… and Miss Molly loves jumping up into my arms for a cuddle :)
Yesterday we celebrated one of my nieces 5th birthday. Krystal came home for the event too which made Mr Toby very happy :)
By the end of the day Mikayla and I were more than ready for a Girls Night In! In spite of the fact that we got all that junk food we barely touched it… I guess we were too full from the party cake! I quite liked the movie “Country Strong” but I really, really liked “I am number 4”!!
Kody had a great party and she’s VERY excited about starting school tomorrow!!
