Back to School

Well my first official year of teaching has begun!  I love it! I definitely chose the most rewarding job possible.  I have 17 little ones that think I am cool. Thank goodness!!  I am loving the fact that I get to see Kolten each and every day as he comes to the room to visit after school.  He comes and steals my candy. (And thats okay)

Ryan is still loving his job and seems to be in the full swing of things now. 

Next week is Kolten's birthday and we will be celebrating his 12 years of life!! Pictures to come :)

Kindergarten Life

I just wanted to start off my apologizing for not blogging for the past 2 and 1/2 months.  EEK! I guess my life has been busy with graduating college, birthday, Christmas and the whole first job thing.  The past two months have been wonderful!

I have been at my first "real" job for the past two weeks.  I am loving loving them!  It is my first time in Kindergarten and I have definitely had to jump in head first.  My class has 30 students, with the other class having 31 students.  This particular school does a lot of team teaching between the two Kindergartens. I absolutely love that!  I have never been at a school big enough to have more than one of each grade level and it is something I adore.  It is nice to have someone there to lend a helping hand, give advice and just to listen to me vent.  So thankful for such wonderful people that have been there to support me.

I need to start blogging about all of the funny quotes the children say.  It seems like each and every minute of the day I have children constantly telling me something that makes me giggle.  For now I will leave you with this one -

Me: "Student, why do you feel like you are sitting in timeout?"
Student: "I don't know.  I just need something to do all the time.  I get bored."
Me:  "Well okay I will get you some added work that you can do when you get bored."
Student:  Thinks about this for a while and than responds with "Ms. Childers I am just a snack eater, I just need snacks."  "I really like doughnuts."

If that is what he think will help :)
