Back To School

I did my first day volunteering at school Thursday! My it is soooo interesting! And quite funny at times! I could probably even have some good blackmail material on some of you! Ha! The kids were very good most of the day and most of them got their work done. I will say that a couple of kids were very distraught over a demerit!!! Which seems really strange to me considering when I went to school we all got demerits for EVERYTHING!!! So, it wasn't a huge crime. I guess maybe times have changed. But please parents don't think it is the end of the world when you kid talks in school and gets a demerit---they are just kids and they have a hard time keeping their mouths shut like some of us adults! HA!
I have never really wanted to be a teacher but I helped some last year too and was very surprised at how easy it is to love alll the kids--even the trouble makers! They are soooo cute and gives hugs all day long!

Connor told me he had a meltdown over his demerit. Even after I told him he wasn't in trouble, he was still on the couch moaning about it. Don't mind him--he's given to melodrama. (We think he gets it from my mother...)

good!!! He wasn't the only one poor kid! I felt so sorry for him! I really think that little demerit was definitely enough punishment for some of those little guys! You would have thought it was the end of the world! and I'm glad you've figured out where he gets it!!! So where does my littlest one get it???

Oh my - too funny! I wish more kids would get so worked up about a demerit. Not the case! I had one child who shall remain nameless that usually got concerned about the time suspension was talked about!!
