Annual tradition – check

Well, the bead necklaces have been made, the paper crowns were colored and stapled, the Helper pointed to decorated cereal boxes while the Hander-Outer dropped in treats.

Lots of people had clever, homemade valentines attached to food. I approve of any food-related Valentines.

We ate Kate’s delicious cherry Jello (heart-shaped, of course) and drank our traditional pink milk (milk with a drop of food coloring).

Voices were raised, feet were running, and the teacher made the threat to hang on to Valentine boxes until tomorrow unless everyone could calm down, and she almost made good on it with two boys. Kindness won out, though.

Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone.

    It’s like all the stuff you were doing was designed to make the kids excitably wild. Then it’s a tightrope walk between fun and absolute chaos. It reminds me of the last day before breaks. We have parties and food and I keep flashing between having fun and being angry.

An explanation

So, yesterday was just a bad day. Local schools had a two-hour late start,which throws our schedule awry. My director works the moment she gets the message, trying to track down staff from home. The phones and messages were busy, so I was busy, and then they called school off, throwing the school-age children into […]

Remember that freezer that the guys helped move? Well, it’s old and had been frosting up rather a lot. Our cook was not interested in defrosting it on a regular basis, so I said I’d move it somewhere. On Friday I finally made steps toward getting it done and moved tha little bit of stuff […]

Memories….

Happy Birthday, Brad! My kids are talking about garbage and recycling. Fortunately for me, the video that we watch while I get the promo ready for nap, Handy Manny, had an episode where the magical, talking tools and their high owner (seriously, he thinks his tools are alive) made furniture for a dollhouse from trash!

So, enough stuff happened on Saturday that I can look like life is more interesting than it really is. One of Lloyd’s auction buddies owns a thrift store and we stopped there on the way home. We felt obligated to buy something, so I bought…. a GT Exprxess 101! I used it that night to […]
