Even Chris held Chance. I think this is a cute picture of them spending some man time together!!
AVa and Chance
It was pretty sweet watching Ava with the babies. She would hold their heads and just rub their little arms. She actually did a lot better with them than I expected. And no just because she liked the babies doesn't mean we will be getting one for her. Sorry Nana but we are done!! I'm sure she can wait for Uncle Eric or Geech to have a baby!!
I can't even remember why she was screaming like this, but you would have thought something was seriously wrong. It was just chocolate pudding.
Literally 2 seconds later

I always forget how hard it is to start over each year. It is like when you just get in a really good groove and then bam it is over and you have to start over from scratch. That is one of the really hard parts of being a teacher. I had to say good bye to my babies from last year and start all over with a fresh set of faces. I just forget how much my kids learn over the year and how hard it is to teach my procedures and likes/dislikes to a new group. I love my job but hate saying good bye and starting over. I have a really sweet group this year for the most part. I can tell it is going to be an interesting year with the mixture of kids I have. I don't think we have any boring days that is for sure. They are definitely going to keep me on my toes and teach me a lot!!! On a really awesome note I do have a student teacher from Georgia State so I am really excited about having help this year and watching her grow as a teacher. I had a really great placement when I did my student teaching so I hope to inspire her as mine did for me!!
It has been crazy getting this girl used to going back to school and especially getting up early ( since she slept until about 10 over the summer). So she has been pretty grumpy lately. The first day of school she went to bed at 5:45. Since then she is getting into a routine and has been able to stay up until her normal bedtime of 7. She is finally back to the sweet little girl we know and love and not the grumpy terrible 2 crazy child!! Thank goodness Chris and I were seriously thinking about shipping her off!! Haha!!
