Open House

Tonight Alise and I went to Open House at her school. Wayne wasn't able to make it because another driver had broken down and he had to go to the rescue yet again. So, Baby Girl and I went by ourselves and I got to meet Mrs. K and talk to her about how Alise was doing in her new "big" school. She said that Alise was doing very well and that she was a very good student. She said that Alise was her helper and that made my heart smile. She sits right beside Mrs.K's desk (I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing?). I got to see all her art work on the walls and got a few glimpses into what exactly it is that they do all day. It was so much fun and I enjoyed it! Here is a picture of Alise & Mrs. K. Alise has an apron on because she was playing in the kitchen area of their classroom. And, yes, I cut another little girl out of the picture. I had no idea who she was. I'm awful, I know.

At the table where she sits, there were some very interesting papers that I thought I might share with you. I hope you can read them. Try double clicking on the pictrues. They made me cry.

Cinderella & Ariel are Alise's fish, if you remember. However, we do not live in a big house by any means!!

On Tuesday, someone from the "welcome to JGS" club came by and stuck a sign in our yard and left a dozen chocolate chip cookies on our door step. Wayne hates it, but I like it. Food! What more could you ask for? But he's referring to the sign. My parents are going to flip when they see it! A Catholic sign in our Baptist yard, oh my!

If I haven't responded to your emails or blogs, it isn't because I haven't forgotten about you. I'm just trying so hard to get into the groove of working, cooking, and getting ready for the next day. I hope to catch up this weekend.

  8. I found your blog from Courtney. Hope you don't care that I am joining your "Blog Family".

    But I had to do the same thing with my little girls picture with her teacher on the first day. One of the little girls wanted to be in it too and I did not have the heart to tell her no. So I just cropped her out.

    The poem from Alise's teacher is priceless. I cried having to just leave my little girl with her teacher. Thank you for sharing it.
