I am officially in my fourth year of Kindergarten. All four with the same teacher. I had her 27 years ago, and all three of my kids have had her, with Ben being the last... Yes...the last.
I told her that she couldn't retire until all of my kids got through K... she's free after May!
I am in my third year of cutting things out of the magazines for EACH and EVERY letter of the alphabet. One letter a week, PLUS about 12 colors. One color a week for 12 weeks. Although I do understand the importance of this activity, you know, the finding and cutting and gluing and whatnot--all important. However, the creative juices just don't flow too well. Not to mention the fact that I want to cut all of the jagged edges off of the pictures that the kids have so carefully cut out all by themselves.
I try to refrain from this so that it keeps it's kindergartner flair. It's hard, I'm tellin' ya.
So, much to my delight, I found a paper in Ben's bag on Friday attached to a turkey with the instructions that we needed to disguise Tom Turkey so that he won't get eaten on Thanksgiving. Best of all, we needed to do it together, as a family. This was so fun! So look at the picture below and try to find Tom.
I think I'm going to pass Kindergarten...again. Oh, and I promise that I let the kids help. Just not with the cutting.
The next picture is just for fun. I saw this shirt at Gymboree and thought it fit fairly well!
