Nuts and Bolts

The lovely holiday break is over.  It was just long enough for some bad habits to be made....like sleeping until I woke up, grazing on food all day and staying up past midnight.  It was tough getting up this morning, but I knew once I got to school I would be fine.  I missed those kids.

While I was in one class, a very rough and rowdy boy said to me in a very loud voice with a very large grin.....

"Hey Mrs. H!  I got a
 thousand toys and
NO CLOTHES for Christmas!"

There's a phenomenon I've observed the last 7 years in kindergarten.  Although the holiday break is only 2 weeks, the kids seem to mature by leaps and bounds over that short time. They are still 5 or 6 so mature is relevant to that.  Most of them are reading by now....and are learning to write by stretching out the sounds they hear. 



Before this "station" got cleaned up,
 I took a picture of it for your viewing pleasure..
or as the kids would spell it...

The college kids are still home and the grocery bill is high.  I actually cooked last night and everyone pitched in to clean up afterwards.  I put leftovers in containers and pushed them across the island for someone to stick in the refrigerator.  This is what I saw this morning when I opened the refrigerator.




Yeah, I had had the toolbox out for a quick repair earlier and apparently I had left the little container of nails and nuts and bolts out.  It got stacked with the leftovers and Cameron,
our resident smart mouth, wrote the note. 
 Made me laugh.
