Hello, my poor neglected blog readers...

Download wordart here

I know I need to do a better job of boring you with stories from my day, but lately I've been extra busy and extra tired.

The three day weekend was awesome and Orange Croc Guy is officially back. He'll still go to New Jersey once a month and will probably spend time there again next summer, but he just couldn't stay away. Miami is a part of him now. This city has a way of doing that to people.

I picked him up at the airport over the weekend and I even wore make up! I thought he would be impressed, but this is how the initial conversation went after our welcome home hug...

OCG: Are you wearing make up?

ME: I am! Aren't you impressed?

OCG: (after a long slow exhale of air) Does this mean we're going home to order fajitas?

ME: Well, I really hadn't thought about that, but I do look extra good today. So if you insist on having fajitas we can order them.

OCG: I don't want fajitas.

ME: Good cause our friends are cooking out and I promised we would join them.

OCG: Just take me home.

ME: Ok...and we can always order fajitas tomorrow.

My principal came into my room this afternoon while we were doing math. I called on one of the boys and he counted the objects on his paper and told the class there were 5 there. I teased him, the way I do, and said that I wasn't sure that was the right answer. This got the rest of the class to count and assure me that he had given the right answer. I then counted the objects myself and acted surprised that five was the correct answer.

I do this with my class more than I should and they always love that they got the right answer and I didn't. I guess they felt a little differently about it today since my principal was in the room, because when I admitted that they were right and I was wrong one little boy called out....


My principal got a good laugh out of that one! He also left my room so it was win win for me. lol!


  1. Thank you so much for this post. I want to let you know that I posted a link to your blog in CBH Digital Scrapbooking Freebies (please, notice the new url for my blog), under the Page 4 post on Sep. 05, 2012. Thanks again.

  2. u r too funny! many thanks for all your fabulous WORD ART!

    hugs :)

  3. Welcome back Croc Guy!!! He's about as romantic as my guy LOL

  4. Thanks so much for the wordart and for the 'Awkward' story - that's hilarious! Reminds me of the fast food commercial (think it's KFC)

  5. Great news that OCG is back. Love the awkward story - bet the principal was trying not to laugh!

  6. Oops. Just realised I didn't say thank you for the word art. Got too distracted with getting another great story from you. Whilst I love your word art, I think I visit as much or more for your re-counts of your day.

  7. I need to give that wordart to some of my friends. :) Glad OCG is back. Liked your classroom story. Great way to get the other kids to count. Clever gal. :)

  8. Great math story -- gave me a laugh this morning! And welcome back, OCG!

  9. One of the precious stories you are able to tell because you are their kindergarten teacher. I'm sure the principal will be telling that story for a very long time. Thank you for today's sentiment.
