So I shoulda, coulda, woulda . . . but I didn’t.
Instead of blogging YESTERDAY about Election Day and what I wanted to do with my class . . . I went to my mom’s for dinner.
We spent part of the evening talking about the fact that she uses a tablecloth when I come over because I’m so fancy (if you didn’t know) and the other part was spent on the Sydney story which made her and my older sister (the mother of Ashley) crack up (as in TEARS which is always my goal) because most of my stories sound better in real life. That way, I can act it out and use facial expressions which I prefer to do.
We also ate.
My mom made a new dish called Enchilada Casserole or some such thing.
It turned out to be more of a Chili Queso Velvetta dip so we just got out the chips and scooped it up that way. We go with the flow, my family.
Then I got in trouble for being on my smart phone.
I’ve tried and tried to tell them how important all of you are to me, but when I say, “You know — Miss Kindergarten!”, they say they don’t know.
I think they’re tuning me out . . .
So now I’m going to talk about what I did for Election Day TODAY (not much) and it’s only helpful to you if (a) you want to copy one of my ideas that I copied from someone else or (b) you want to do this tomorrow as a Post Presidential Election Day thing.
Or . . . you could put it away and get it back out in 4 years.
Anywho, I didn’t have a lot of time to talk about Election Day what with a new student and Centers and 3D Shapes (Harry Kindergarten!) and recess and the obligatory nap.
Yep. New student. I was a little worried because if you were reading my blog last year, you may remember that NEW BOY from last year needed an attitude adjustment and
we didn’t get along for quite awhile he took longer than necessary to adjust to my expectations
So . . . it was completely normal that my tummy hurt this morning and I felt like I might cry.
But NEW GIRL is tiny, quiet, speaks a little bit of English, but not often, and smiles the whole livelong day.
