We also have our very first peaches. (I think it is a peach tree and it looks a little fuzzy and is shaped like a peach, but it could be a plum...we have one of those trees, too...but it can't be an apple because the deer pulled it out of the ground this winter...aarrgh.) Anyway, here is a hint of our future crop.
Spent an hour after school with Stevie, getting the room set up to be a theater on the morrow. All of the kids but one have people saying they will come. I sent another invitation home with him this afternoon. If no one comes, I will have a willing daddy volunteer to be there for him...aahhh.
They are ready for showtime.
Here's one more story from my 2 years in New Mexico where I taught 2nd grade. After a unit of study about the presidents in February, the assessment was for them to choose one of the presidents and write what they had learned about them. Here is the paper, word for word, as it hangs on my fridge even today:
When Abraham Lincoln was a boy he lived in a log cabin. When Abraham Lincoln grew up, he got married and moved to a Gettysburg address. Then he became president. Abraham Lincoln never lied.
And that's the truth! Hope you got a giggle, too.
