I don't ever think about writing it as a tool for anyone else. Offering advice for kindergarten teaching is about all I have absolute certainty of, but after teaching for 8 hours, I can only ever come up with is an occasional funny or cute "student story." And today I have one. I got an email from a parent who shared that her son wanted to make a Friendship Sandwich. The mom wrote that as her little guy made the sandwich with both white and whole wheat bread, he explained that it was like Martin Luther King Jr. bringing different races together. He told her that putting the jam in the middle was the "sweetness" that comes from embracing people who are different than ourselves. The mom was so pleased that her little guy, who is a very young kindergartner was never able to share anything about curriculum in preschool, was now starting to share concepts almost everyday..Just precious. See? This blog is the only place I can share stuff like where it will remind me of the "happy" months from now..
But I need to do more sharing of my town. I live in the suburbs now, in a little historic area on the Occoquan River. It is just delightful. The only thing missing is a good diner type dive. All of the restaurants are too foo-foo for us. There is a big new place that we haven't checked out yet, so maybe I can do that when my dad comes back this week. He's been back in Florida since Christmas and he is just missing the girlz so much. He usually stays a week or two. The girlz can't wait to see him either. They miss rough housing with him.
It was 19 and snowing, so I took these snaps from the coziness of my truck!
And at my mom's house to shovel her out! August was inside, she didn't want to come out..She didn't feel like getting all "Bungled Up."
And after leaving my mom's house, I made August get all Bungled up and we made a quick stop at the Domino's for a pizza supper! The coat irritated her, but the thought of a good Brooklyn style slice made her very happy. She is . her. momma's . girl!
